At the heart of every Future Crunch presentation 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 the story of 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.

A sensational eye-opener for me and my team.

Feeling negative about the state of the world? Is the news getting you down? Have you had enough of people arguing on your Facebook feed? We might be able to help. This is a musical story about the human race you've never heard before.

Ancient diseases are being eradicated, war is decreasing, millions are being lifted out of poverty and billions are gaining access to the greatest information resource our species has ever known. We’re dragging giant turbines into our oceans to harness the power of gales, we can control robots with our minds, cut and paste our own DNA, and we’re taking bold new steps into space. We're just not hearing a lot about it.

We know the challenges we face. This is a musical journey into how – with courage, creativity, and and revolutionary technologies that build on thousands of years of human ingenuity – we are rising to meet them.

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 highly recommend them for any event that's looking to explain big world issues, with accurate information, while keeping it super entertaining.
