Customer and client expectations are accelerating faster than ever. David shares consumer trends to supercharge incumbent organisations.

Each one is an opportunity to innovate and create new products, services, and experiences. Along the way, he helps clients learn a simple, powerful framework that empowers them to start spotting their own trends.​

This enables them to gain understanding of where customers are heading and win in the Expectation Economy! He delves into:

  • Why looking at other industries is key when it comes to understanding where yours is heading next
  • How to decode the future by focusing on what doesn’t change
  • How a simple framework can empower leaders to spot emerging behaviours and attitudes and to innovate for them
