Realize Your Ambitions

Supertrends Institute didn’t get where it is today by knowing what the future holds. Our understanding of the future has evolved radically, and what you see today is our current thinking, in action. The confidence we have in our strategy is the result of hard work – developing new mindsets, adopting new tools and developing new skills to make sense of the future and realize its potential.

And if we find figuring out the future difficult, we expect you do too.

In fact, we wish we had available from the start exactly what we offer you as a member: A platform that not only cultivates futures thinking, but also synthesizes divergent views from your peers on your specific situation so that you can move forward with conviction. As we’ve discovered in assembling thought-provoking futurists, facilitators and strategists from around the world, it pays to stay curious about the insights that new perspectives can provide.

Anyone is welcome at the institute, but we tend to attract people who are:
Curious – Building success on exploration about what could be.
Ambitious – Possessing the spirit of progress.
Collaborative – Appreciating diversity of thought and perspective.

Basically, people like us in wanting to continuously learn, create and recreate.

If that sounds like you, sign up for our newsletter to stay in touch.

Jens on Leadership

Leadership is about having the courage to lead. Leading based on listening and checking that you have understood. Leading guided by a vision that you hold full ownership of. Leading by clear language, trust and empowerment. Leading by connecting and combining your heart, your head and your guts.

Meet Jens

I co-founded and co-created Supertrends Institute because I wanted to contribute to the important democratization of Futures Thinking, Acting and Learning – In support of our Purpose: To empower our members to successfully identify, evaluate and craft their most desired future, today. And I am very pleased to see how fast we are growing under the umbrella of this Purpose.

As a future strategist, entrepreneur, facilitator, coach and public speaker, I’ve had extensive success in empowering strategic initiatives and inspiring people, business and culture transformations resulting in increased future readiness, organisational agility and personal growth in the people I have had the pleasure of working closest with.

Graham on Leadership

In situations of great uncertainty, action may seem risky, but inaction is even more so.

Meet Graham

I’ve spent most of the past 25 years getting to know people from all over the world, managing teams through disruption and navigating uncertainty. I’ve worked in education, journalism, marketing and the non-profit sector, leading multinational teams in Taipei, Singapore, Tokyo and Beijing. I hold an MBA and doctorate in business administration from Edinburgh Business School.
