Trend Hunter CEO and New York Times bestselling author Jeremy Gutsche covers the most prominent examples of innovation seen in multiple industries across a span of 20 years. This workshop discusses how change can lead to opportunities, detailing lessons about consumer trends and desires, gathered from Jeremy’s 15 years of keynote speaking.
The Megatrend Matrix is Trend Hunter’s way of navigating the fast-paced, ever-changing world of trend spotting. The 18 Megatrends are based on evergreen consumer desires, and this tool is particularly useful in times of reinvention, as it highlights how consumer desire manifests across industries.
Work Scenarios of a Post-Pandemic World explores how businesses can work to navigate the new normal and realign their cultures to accommodate new priorities. This session discusses how hybrid, remote, and in-office work models relate to the disruptive transformation of work and how this will continue to evolve in the coming years.
Generational behavior is heavily shaped by shared experiences and how they are internalized by different age groups. This topic is explored in depth during our micro-generations keynote, which gives a micro-segmented overview of nuanced groups and the reality of post-pandemic life.
As the retail space continues to evolve, the focus is being placed on offering enhanced in-person experiences that are unique and engaging, while still offering the convenient aspects of eCommerce. This keynote discusses how to find a perfect balance between these subjects while still leaving room for innovation and new ways of operating.
What are the elements of an innovator? The answer can be as simple as studying the elements of hip hop. This keynote explores innovation through a musical lens and uses a new, fresh take on Trend Hunter’s Create the Future framework to find common ground and new insight.

We’ll share idea-hunting tips while exploring how challenges can be overcome to reveal hidden opportunities.
