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.

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