What drives the consumer in the current spirit of the time, how do you stay relevant and what skills are required for tomorrow’s world? These are key issues I address directly in my presentations and masterclasses.

You can book me as a Keynote speaker for your event or follow my live online events.


From an overarching view, I filter and deconstruct the relevant surrounding factors from this turbulent, transforming world, before zooming in on the effects these exert on man and the consumer.

These consumer trends, or PRINCIPLES OF PROGRESS, are illustrated by a wealth of fascinating examples from the worlds of art, culture, science, marketing, media, advertising, retail, food and design.

Every presentation is underpinned by the very latest developments. Ultimately, you will come away with tangible, practical, immediately usable ideas, as well as insights to build and underpin future-proof policies.

We are working on a special membership plan so you can get more of this valuable content for less. If you are interested, drop us a note and we will inform you when the membership is up and running.


Using the Principles of Progress as a basis we, together with you, can take the following steps for your organisation:

  • Set out a clear framework within which strategy, product or policy can be developed.

  • Define the implications of the Principles of Progress for your brand, product or service and how to approach these.

  • Link up your mission and vision with the spirit of the time.
  • Translate trends into specific product groups, collections and concepts.

Would you like to book me as speaker, guest panellist or moderator?
