Global Business Futurist and Best-Selling Author

Frank Feather has been called "a walking encyclopedia on the future," and "an encyclopedic genius." A strategy-driven futurist, Frank Feather combines solid business experience with uncanny forecasts and novel insights that often shake up the conventional wisdom.

Thinking Globally, Acting Locally

For 22 years, Frank was a strategic planning and marketing executive with three of the world's top banks. In 1979 he coined the term "Thinking Globally, Acting Locally" and is ranked among the "Top 100 Futurists of All Time" by Macmillan's Encyclopedia of the Future.

Trends

Frank founded Geo Strategies, a company that consulted with corporations and world governments in 1980 and continues to offer geo-strategic advice, based particularly on geo-economic and geo-political trends. Since 1984, he has been a Special Advisor to China on economic modernization and market reform.

C-Level Consultant

In 2010 he became the Co - Ceo of CExecutives, operating as CExecutives One-on-One, a franchise-like global network of independent C-Level consultants with a diverse range of functional experience and expertise. The  practice network includes Co-Founder CEOs, Senior Partner CEOs, C-Level Partners, Affiliate Consultants, Event Consultants, and Public Speakers and Seminar Leaders, across all geographic regions.

Futurist

Frank has been researching the Internet and its impact on society since 1992. He spends several hours a day online and uses custom software to track future trends via the Net. This trend analysis and forecasting system is based on that used by the CIA and is believed to be the most sophisticated software in the public domain.

Keynote Speaker

Since 1981, Frank has advised a worldwide roster of clients on trends impacting their future. He has addressed 500+ audiences totaling 250,000+ people. In doing so, he has visited all but two U.S. states, each Canadian province, and most countries of Western Europe, South America, East Asia and Australasia.

Books

Frank's book, FutureConsumer.Com: The Webolution of Shopping, was entirely researched and written on the Net and describes a future in which most of us will live a "Web Lifestyle." He is also the best-selling author of Biznets, Future Living, and Futuristic Leadership.

 

"FUTURE-PROOF" DIGITIZAL TRANSFORMATION

The digital revolution continues unabated and will be even more disruptive as old business models are not only disrupted but get reinvented or scrapped. You cannot compete by simply upgrading technology. And the CIO or CDO cannot do this alone. The entire enterprise has to be re-envisioned and re-invented if it is to survive and prosper.

ECONOMIC "SUPER-BOOM" 2020-2030

Frank long ago identified a repetitive 9-year economic cycle in North America. He forecast the last 3 recessions [1991-2, 2000-1, 2009-10] in his 1989 book G-Forces ... along with the next minor slow-down, which he still says will occur in 2019, followed by another boom of unprecedented proportions.

FUTURE of CONSUMER SERVICE SECTORS

Every service sector is vulnerable to total digital and competitor disruption and revolution. All product and service offerings need to be transformed in their creation, marketing and delivery. Some services may be totally replaced by new concepts as the gig economy and digital partnerships emerge.

INNOVATION LEADERSHIP and CHANGE MANAGEMENT

Innovation and change must be constant and must relate to future market needs. The world operates in "beta" mode. Innovation and change also must be in "beta" mode, or it will not be "future-proof". Stay ahead of the curve: be your sector's innovation leader.

FUTURE-PROOF MARKETING

Marketing is being transformed by the digital revolution. Consumers worldwide continue to shift away from brick-n-mortar shops to online and mobile channels. They also demand a "wow" experience, forcing a total marketing re-think. The 4Ps must be revamped, as must every aspect of customer sales and satisfaction.

FUTURISTIC LEADERSHIP A-Z

Despite an ever-changing world, many leaders merely fight fires or maintain the status quo – and get mediocre results, or slither backwards. Futuristic leaders don't get side-tracked. They stay focused on the future – and attain extraordinary goals.
