In this presentation, Future Crunch takes a journey through the eight disruptive technological trends that are creating the next economy.


Technology, which used to be thought of as a sector on its own, or a business function to be outsourced, is now a strategic layer across all aspects of organisation. As a result disruption is happening in every sector of the economy. Innovation is now standard business lingo. 

Understanding what's over the horizon is essential for any organisation wishing to harness the opportunities of a rapidly changing global economy in the 21st century. 

Audiences will come away from this talk with the ability to think clearly and critically about the way technological disruption is changing business, a skill that's particularly relevant for leaders who wish to turn  technology to their strategic advantage — and protect their organizations against competitors who wish to do the same.

Key Outcomes

  • Have a sound understanding of concepts central to the process of technological innovation.
  • Receive the most up to date information on the current state of technological change in multiple industries.
  • Tools to harness 21st century working practices for innovation, change management and disruption.

This talk explores how technology is redefining work in the 21st century, and reveals how organisations can start adapting right now. 


Advancements in technology have provided a catalyst to redefine the needs of people in the workplace, and as a result, we see a move towards sharing, freelancing and a desire for meaning and purpose in the  next economy.  

Work, flexibility and traditional nine to five structures are being flipped upside down. While these changes present challenges, they also offer an opportunity for the workforce of the future to find a sense of renewed freedom.

Audiences will walk away from this presentation with a better understanding of how to start building a workplace that is prepared for automation, disruption and changing work patterns. Essential insights for any organisation searching for innovative thinking to effectively manage people – the heart of any business today, tomorrow and beyond.

Key Outcomes

  • Gain insights into key trends creating the future of work and understand how to navigate these changes
  • Tools to adapt, innovate and build businesses of tomorrow
  • Develop the tools to harness creativity, shift perception and create optimism in an organisational structure
Future Crunch were among the best speakers I’ve ever heard – hugely knowledgeable, credible, articulate and engaging – I could have listened to them all night. An absolute bargain for an hour of fascinating insights.

Future Crunch are incredible commentators with a very interesting story to tell. They provided a dynamic, progressive and fascinating talk on science, technology and a balanced view of humanity’s current and progressing achievements, presenting them in an attainable, easy to understand way. Their talk also incorporated technologies that would directly impact our area of business. It really resonated with our broad audience who were enthralled and engaged by this quick-witted, charismatic and abundantly knowledgeable team.

While anyone who includes a quote from Carl Sagan in their presentation will get a thumbs up from me, I do consider the offering from Future Crunch to be outstanding. Their presentation on the important role of science, the need for critical thinking and the optimism we should hold for our future is unique and probably needs to be delivered to everyone in Australia. It was the perfect start to our professional development day. If you get the chance, go see them.

A mind-blowing journey through multiple scientific breakthroughs, disruptive technologies and social advancements that are ‘crunching’ together to create a better world.


Optimism is the path to creating a better future. Those who believe they can change the world that do. That world may be personal, professional or community-based. Whatever the context, it is through intelligent and courageous optimism that we are inspired to activate the creativity required to live a life of meaning.

Audiences will walk away from this presentation with insights into technologies that are creating a new narrative for mankind, and the science behind them. They'll learn how our cognitive biases distort our view of the world, making us feel unnecessarily pessimistic, and preventing us from achieving our true potential. 

Participants will gain a renewed sense of hope, purpose, and commitment to problem solving, innovation and organisational change.

Key Outcomes

  • Gain insight into scientific and technological trends shaping the world
  • Understand cognitive biases to create a new outlook on the world we live in
  • Gain tools to find meaning and activate purpose
  • New and unusual insights into innovation and change
Future Crunch are dangerous. Their optimism flies in the face of lazy, nihilistic doomsday prophets that pedal sensationalist stories about how we might as well give up because the end is nigh. They force you to take action, by pointing to the incredible achievements we as human beings accomplish each and every day.

Not denying the very real and dangerous threats we face as a species and as a consequence our planet, but enforcing the fact that our actions make a difference, and we can solve the problems that face us.

Go listen to them - they’ll change your life.
— Dr Ricardo Peach | Director, Vrystaat Arts Festival
Listening to the Future Crunch guys talk was exhilarating – they were our closing keynote and even though they were speaking on the last session of the last day - the graveyard shift - they were so energetic and compelling that the delegates were left enthralled. We have had a number of speakers going through our conferences and there has never been a more inspiring pair.
