FOR THE BRAIN
At the heart of every Future Crunch talk is an exploration of what’s happening on the frontiers of science and technology, and an intelligent, courageous optimism about the future. We’ve spoken at more than 200 events on five different continents, telling stories about how millions of people around the world are coming up with solutions to the big challenges of our time.
We strive to create unique and memorable experiences. This includes integrating music and awe-inspiring visuals as a way to integrate both the head and the heart. You will never see the same presentation twice. We pride ourselves on ensuring the insights we deliver are fresh and tailored to our audience.
Their knowledge and expertise, in particular their ability to scan the horizon and predict the future global environment, was instrumental in developing our future capabilities strategy.

The best presentation on the state of the world that I've seen in years.

They took 30 minutes to explain what would have taken us a year to change manage across the business.

Our team of unlike-minds is diverse by design. Every member has earned expertise and lived experience in their area of influence, and an ability to translate complicated information into actionable insights. We bring real credibility in the delivery of compelling experiences. We keep the facts sacred, and storytelling is at the heart of everything we do.
Their presentation on the important role of science, the need for critical thinking and the optimism we should hold for our future is unique and needs to be delivered to everyone.

Future Crunch’s session was fantastic and their ability to not only capture the attention of over 2,000 doctors, but also speak to them on a peer to peer basis made the session an enriching and enjoyable experience for them.
Zena Burgess | CEO, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners
Their collective knowledge of current and emerging technological trends and developments is truly inspiring. They are highly entertaining, engaging and thoughtful presenters - there’s no better thought leader and educator than these guys.
Antonia Mercorella | CEO, The Real Estate Institute of Queensland
We curate an email newsletter every two weeks, full of good news from around the world, incredible scientific and technological breakthroughs, and our favourite stories from the best parts of the internet. More than 29,000 people subscribe, and our community of readers supports us in a number of charitable initiatives.
The only newsletter subscription I haven’t cancelled after a few emails. Concise, funny, interesting, and always finds content I might not have had come across myself. A little bit like “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”, but with a positive twist.
Sina Keshavarzi, Alaford, Sweden
These guys are the honey in the bitter tea of life, the artisinal jelly on the dry old crust of daily news, the unexpected wink from the cute guy once you’ve hit 40.
Agnieszka D, Atlanta, United States
How many email newsletters leave you feeling sincerely inspired about the potential of the human race? If you're not already reading it, OH MY GOD why aren't you reading it?!?
Katie Gertsch, British Columbia, Canada
Feeling negative about the state of the world in 2019? Is the news getting you down? Have you had enough of people arguing on your Facebook feed? The Future Crunch team might be able to help. Showcasing their infectious brand of musically inspired, intelligent optimism, this is a story about the human race you've never heard before.
Using music, poetry, cutting edge science and mindblowing visuals, we explore how, with boldness, creativity, and revolutionary technologies that build on thousands of years of human ingenuity – humanity is rising to the challenges we face.
Outstanding. A thought-provoking and thoroughly engaging account of the real world we live in. Not an easy job, to keep a room of senior corporate executives on their toes, but they did. Musical, provocative, a brilliant display of optimism at its finest.
Michael Byrne | Managing Director, Toll Group
A magic combination of vivid imagery, humour, statistics and soundscapes that conveys powerful messages, and challenges you to think again about the world.
Peter Tullin | Co-Founder, REMIX Summits
We asked them to do a live recap of our first day of our Summit, and it was a vision I wasn't sure would achieve what I wanted it to. They pulled it off brilliantly and added their own content into the mix. A remarkable performance.
Christina Gerakiteys | Co-CEO, SingularityU Australia
