Life in the year 2100 with forecasts to 2120: why radically different to what most people expected back in 2050. Discover for yourself in New edition of The Future of Almost Everything. FEATURE / INTERVIEW

Tell us about the new edition of your book The Future of Almost Everything - in it is a chapter on life in 2120, how did you go about trying to forecast that far ahead? Most people would think it impossible.

It was an interesting process. When you are that far out, you are almost in the realms of science fiction, but remember that the greatest SciFi writers have often had extraordinary vision and correctly anticipated many things we take for granted today. I have been forecasting trends for over 30 years now, and the reason I'm still here, having worked with over 400 of the world's top 2000 companies, is because I've found that major trends tend to change in relatively predictable ways, while human nature is basically unchanged. And even technologies that change very rapidly are usually doing so in ways that are fairly obvious when you think about it. The broad direction of major global trends is usually very clear to experts in each industry or region, while we may debate about exact timing and likely impact....

Future of Toys / Retail Trends. The more virtual and digital our world, the more parents will want to encourage physical, creative, learning toys like Lego. Report from Legoland - Futurist Retail keynote speaker Patrick Dixon. VIDEO

Future of toys - and why many parents are going retro for their children - with booming sales of traditional toys. Lessons from history of Lego and reasons for Lego success. Retail trends, toy shops, child games, construction toys, early learning, child development. Future of educational toys. Consumer trends and impact on traditional retail. Video blog from Legoland, Billund, Denmark by Futurist Keynote Speaker Patrick Dixon

"We need to understand how middle class parents think and feel, and how that will continue to change rapidly over the next few years. Today's generation of parents are bombarded continually with online opinions and advice and this is a highly stressed group of people, who are so much wanting the very best for their own children. Educational, simple and creative toys are going to continue to be really important to parents as antidotes to an iPad / video / online gaming world."

Futurist Speakers - how to become a world-class keynote speaker who predicts industry trends, challenging and entertaining at the same time. Magazine INTERVIEW

Interview with Futurist Speaker Patrick Dixon by Bitrix Blog - with updates (February 2019)

So, how does one become good at spotting future business trends, to become a world-famous Futurist speaker?

As a Futurist speaker working with over 400 of the world's largest multinationals, I have been forecasting trends for corporations for almost 20 years. The method I use is to read very widely, learn from every person I meet about their own changing world, travel extensively, spend time with innovators in the world’s greatest companies, and always ask radical questions about what could happen in future. 

All great Futurist speakers focus on hundreds of longer term trends which have been changing relatively slowly over the last three decades, and which will drive huge business opportunities over the next two decades, and then combine these with a very detailed view of the client's own business.  

But that is not enough: world-class Futurist speakers need to have passion, conviction and the ability to read every audience at the speed of light, feeding them life-changing, astonishing insights in an entertaining and highly-memorable way.
