Why Most Trend Predictions Are Wrong (And How To Fix Them)


Most trend predictions in business suffer from the same problem … they are too obvious. In this opening from Rohit’s popular 2014 Business Trends keynote, he shares his secret to discovering new trends that will affect business in 2014 and beyond. This talk is updated every year in December when the next year’s trend report is published. This report has been published every year for the past four years and has been read more than half a million times. Previous and current reports are available at www.15trends.com. This talk was presented as an opening keynote at the Potomac Tech Wire Social Media Outlook 2014 Conference in Tysons Corner, VA.


If you are seeking a Futurist or Trend Expert for your next event, Rohit’s approach to defining and presenting business trends is unlike most other speakers. He not only talks about his process for research, and shares key trends – but also outlines clear step by step advice on how audience members can use these trends in their own business. Trends can be customized by industry, feature plenty of real life examples and the overall presentation is a fast paced and actionable talk that gets attendees thinking and works best as an opening keynote talk for a day long internal event or a multi-day business conference.

Full day Strategy Retreats and Innovation Days based on this Trend Report are also available. These events allow Rohit to host larger private groups, lead strategic planning, and provide advice on applying these trends to current business challenges.
