The Future: Predictions for the Next Decade

Described by Forbes Asia as “one of the smartest people on the planet,” Dr Richard Hames is widely regarded as our most accurate futurist.

In 1998 he warned of the probability of hijacked planes being flown into the World Trade Centre. In 2005 he described to a group of Wall Street bankers the patterns that would lead to a global financial crisis just three years later. Last year he shocked a television audience by suggesting that a drone strike that could kill a popular political leader was imminent – an event that occurred in Iran on the 3rd January this year.

Sought after by governments and corporations for his remarkably accurate insights, Richard will be flying in from Thailand to shake us up and share his views on the state of the world and the future of our industry.
