How can we predict the future and better prepare for it? This is a question that many companies are asking themselves, a question that also has consequences for your personal future.
We have information about the past, but it can no longer be changed and is beyond our control. However, although we know little about the future, we can still change and influence it - at least a little. It turns out, the future is less unknown than we may think.
This course teaches a set of tools that course participants can use to discover for themselves signs of what the future may bring, and how to influence them to make better decisions today. With this knowledge and tools, course participants will be able to shape their own personal future or that of their company and organization.

I am a technology trend researcher and author.
I’ve been living in Silicon Valley since 2001. I am researching technology trends, write books and consult companies on topics such as Innovation, Silicon Valley Mindset, Foresight Mindset, Automotive, Artificial Intelligence, Creativity, Intrapreneurship. For many years I worked at SAP as development manager and innovation strategist.
Now I help companies how they can apply the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit from Silicon Valley in their organizations, to be more innovative and discover trends and tipping points earlier and influence them.
I give keynotes about these topics and conduct workshops on Foresight Mindset, AI, Innovation, Silicon Valley-Mindset, Automotive, Creativity, and Intrapreneurship. I also look at signals of emerging technology trends and how they impact society, politics, or employment.
