Life is happening faster.
Huge shifts are the norm.

We're all demanding more quality, transparency, innovation, well-being, and fun. For less time, energy, and money.

Old systems are shattering and new ones have yet to be created.

We have to change the game. Create with passion. Take a Leap!

We owe it to the future.

How We Do It

Trend Synthesis

The Big Shift

Welcome to our future!

Some have speculated that we are on the cusp of a transformation as dramatic as the Renaissance. Given all we see, it’s very possible. We call it THEBIGSHIFT, and we are eager to share our thoughts on the specific 9 Shifts reshaping what’s ahead.

It's designed to help you harness this momentum. How can we be so sure we have it right? Well, we’ve devoted this entire year to meeting those who are literally creating the future by:

  • Curating a day of FearLess TEDx talks, and of LimitLess ones for 700+ youth.
  • Exchanging horsepower with HATCH, a really special community dedicated to hatching a better world by nurturing and championing those creating the most audacious ideas.
  • Joining as an official member of the REXpedition, attending NATPE, C2MTL and TEDActive, becoming a part of the Catalyst Week family, participating in an extraordinary session with Insight Labs, and giving talks to (and trading ideas) with mobile education pioneers, social innovation champions, and leaders in a range of industries.
  • And finally, together with a team of curious corporate leaders, creating The Wonder Project, an intimate tour of this new world, where we sought out and spent time imagining the future with many of those amazing folks who are building it.

All of this has had a profound impact on us and the way we now think. And it directly influences the strategic work we do in helping organizations and leaders better understand what the future needs and expects from them … and ensuring they

are making a truly meaningful contribution to it.

As this year dawns, we are now busy wondering how Love and Business will intersect…and how we each will show up to reduce the gap between the two?

A big, happy toast to Wonder. And to Love. And to You!
