Futurist Richard Watson releases his latest book - Future Minds

27th October 2010

Richard Watson, the acclaimed author of Future Files and speaker has released his latest book, Future Minds: How The Digital Age is Changing Our Minds, Why This Matters and What We Can Do About It.

Richard advises organisations on the future, focusing on strategic foresight and scenario planning. He is also the author of What's Next report on global trends, which aims to offer clear, concise, non sensationalist commentary on trends in society. 

Richard’s latest book, Future Minds draws on the latest research to explore the ways that screen culture is shaping the future and changing the way we think. With kids today spending up to 8 hours a day in front of a screen and teenagers sending 2,000 text messages a month, Richard asks are we becoming addicted to data? How do we go about starting a digital diet and clearing a blocked brain?

With constant access to information and data, we’re living in a culture of rapid response without any time to reflect. Are we about to lose the ability to think creatively, are we cultivating a generation that has all the answers but few good questions?

Richard is busy on the corporate circuit delivering keynote speeches to a wide variety of clients. Richard’s specific topics of expertise are newspapers, retail banking and food and often speaks on topics such as current and future trends, strategic foresight or the future of specific industries, and customer segments.
