    Randall is a business strategist, exponential futurist and hardcore research analyst. As a global explorer, news junkie, technologist and transhumanist, he loves to discover, analyze and determine the implications of each next new thing. He believes that facts trump theories, scenarios beat forecasts, pyramid principle thinking outperforms stream of consciousness, and that it’s far better to surf the tsunami of technology-enabled changes than fight gravity with legacy mindsets.

    Bringing nearly three decades of experience as a strategy consultant, entrepreneur, general manager, corporate executive and thought leader working in Asia, Europe and North America, Randall helps executive teams anticipate, assess and address the market disruptions and opportunities impacting their business in today’s accelerating business environment.
