Speakers Corner works with a host of futurists, trend analysts, academic professors, media commentators, digital technology and social media experts. A futurist often makes the perfect opening to a conference or strategy away day as it provides a a fantastic scene setter before funnelling down to relevant sector specifics. Futurists and trend analysts have a wealth of research and knowledge that they use to make their content relevant to the sector in question. More than anyone a futurist would require a detailed briefing before attending an event. For more information on futurists for your next event, please contact one of the Speakers Corner booking agents on +44 (0)20 7607 7070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
