FUTURE-CASTING — Mastering Virtual Futurist Keynotes


Over the past few weeks I’ve developed my FUTURE-CASTING Platform for delivering incredible keynotes for clients. It’s a mash-up of eSports streaming, newscasting, documentary film making, and futurist keynotes.

  • Each keynote is 100% customized — that’s been my promise since day one. It takes longer, but the client is paying for something special so work harder!
  • Undertake a deep level of research — research the industry, and the industries that it feeds and that surround it. Interview key people from the client. Speak with academics and other futurists that have expertise you need to tap into.
  • Deliver on content and value— provide an HD video of the talk, show actionable insights and always include a post- keynote report.
