Technology, which used to be thought of as a function to be outsourced, or a sector on its own, is now a strategic layer across all aspects of business. 

Global connectivity, digital technologies, artificial intelligence, intuitive computing, robotics, renewable energy, additive manufacturing, gene editing and brain machine interfacing. Together, they're like a roaring tornado creating once in a hundred year revolutions in every industry at once. 

Understanding what's over the horizon is essential for any organisation wishing to harness the opportunities of a rapidly changing global economy in the 21st century. 

Audiences will come away from this talk with the ability to think clearly and critically about the way technological disruption is changing the economy, a skill that's particularly relevant for leaders who wish to turn  technology to their strategic advantage — and protect their organisations against competitors who wish to do the same.

Key Outcomes

  • Have a sound understanding of concepts central to the process of technological innovation.
  • Receive the most up to date information on the current state of technological change in multiple industries.
  • Tools to harness 21st century working practices for innovation, change management and disruption.

The Future Crunch keynote address ‘the next economy’ certainly challenged the thinking of our delegates and staff at our recent BT Select Forum. Their content was fascinating, insightful and most importantly, thought-provoking. The audience engagement and entertaining style enabled the messages of embracing technology and keeping an open mind as the key takeaways. We now have many delegates now looking at part-time coding courses... thank you Gus and Tane for your willingness to share your knowledge and insights with us.

Future Crunch were among the best speakers I’ve ever heard – hugely knowledgeable, credible, articulate and engaging – I could have listened to them all night. An absolute bargain for an hour of fascinating insights.

While anyone who includes a quote from Carl Sagan in their presentation will get a thumbs up from me, I do consider the offering from Future Crunch to be outstanding. 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 probably needs to be delivered to everyone in Australia. It was the perfect start to our professional development day. If you get the chance, go see them.

New stories can help us imagine many futures, and direct our imaginations towards the futures we want. This story is about people who are making the world a better place. It's about opportunities and solutions, rather than problems and threats. It's a story that's informed by a belief that optimism doesn’t have to be a reaction to the world around us; it can also be a tool by which we affect the world around us. 

Audiences will walk away from this presentation with insights into technologies that are creating a new narrative for mankind, and the science behind them. They'll learn how our cognitive biases distort our view of the world, making us feel unnecessarily pessimistic, and preventing us from achieving our true potential. 

Participants will gain a renewed sense of hope, purpose, and commitment to problem solving, innovation and organisational change.

Key Outcomes

  • Gain insight into scientific and technological trends shaping the world
  • Understand cognitive biases to create a new outlook on the world we live in
  • Gain tools to find meaning and activate purpose
  • New and unusual insights into innovation and change
Future Crunch have an incredible ability to put the biggest global challenges in perspective and create a sense of grounded hope that we can make the world a better place - mobilising changemakers from wherever they start to see they can, and are, participating as world shapers.
— Claire Rogers | CEO, World Vision Australia
Future Crunch are dangerous. Their optimism flies in the face of lazy, nihilistic doomsday prophets that pedal sensationalist stories about how we might as well give up because the end is nigh. They force you to take action, by pointing to the incredible achievements we as human beings accomplish each and every day.

Not denying the very real and dangerous threats we face as a species and as a consequence our planet, but enforcing the fact that our actions make a difference, and we can solve the problems that face us. Go listen to them - they’ll change your life.
— Dr Ricardo Peach | Director, Vrystaat Arts Festival
Hundreds of speakers have taken the stage at REMIX Summits across the globe and I have been privileged to see some incredible talks over the years. Future Crunch are part of a rarified group that stand out from the rest.

They use vivid imagery, humour, statistics and soundscapes to convey powerful and important messages that challenge you to think again about the world. This magic combination of ingredients makes them compelling storytellers and guides to an age of fundamental change where everyone needs to understand the forces and trends that continue to reshape everything we know.
