It is a discreet place where CEOs, chairs and top management of private, public and third sector organizations can identify and evaluate emerging technology and economic trends. This future-orientated work means far more insights are discovered than are used.
This un-used knowledge is usually longer term in nature and is normally regarded as sweepings from the cutting room floor. Rather than abandon this material, Adrian collects the more interesting trends together and shares the findings at speaking events and authoring blogs and books.
