Insightful, thought-provoking, future-focused keynote presentations for your company conference or strategy gathering.

Where do the strategic growth opportunities lie for South African businesses who have a five-year time horizon into the future?
What possible 'wildcard' risks should your organisation be taking note of and carefully assessing?
What changes, happening in the world right now, could have a dramatic effect on the financial sustainability of your business in the years to come - and most importantly, what can and should you do about it right now?

These are are just some of the the important questions that all organisational leadership should be thinking about, and gathering as much diverse perspective on, as part of their crucial strategic planning initiatives.

This is not simply about marvelling at the headline-grabbing, technological artefacts of change, but really about getting a far better sense of the deep, underlying structural forces of change that are coursing through the veins of our global society and how they might unfold into the future.


Over the past 14 years, Jonathan Cherry has offered his wildly opinionated perspectives on emerging global consumer trends and practical innovation strategies as keynote presentations, to a wide variety of corporate audiences.

Now as a qualified futurist, he not only offers audiences commentary on the most notable global, regional and deep-seated forces of change, but also practical tools as to how to apply this information in the strategic planning process.

'Simply having evidence of the first signs of disruptive change is not enough, what is useful is understanding how you might, or might not, use that insight to your advantage.'  - Jonathan Cherry
