The Applied Futurist

Hi, I'm Tom Cheesewright, Applied Futurist.

I spend my time helping people and organisations to answer three questions:

  • What does our future hold?
  • How do we tell that story?
  • And what do we do about it?

I do this through consulting, speaking, writing, and the media, appearing a few times each week on telly, on the radio, online and even in old-school print, explaining technology and tomorrow. I also license the tools of Applied Futurism to other futurists, working inside companies, or as consultants.

From here you can find out more about my work, enquire about consulting, book me for a speaking engagement, or commission new content.
