What makes a futurologist different from a future-researcher?

Max Thinius – Futurologist and Future Shaper Max Thinius is regarded as Europe’s leading futurologist and designer of the future. Besides his work as a consultant for companies, cities, regions and people, he gives many lectures, is a moderator and bestselling author. Many companies and people today are faced with major considerations for the future. Somehow everything does not fit together anymore. The whole world is changing. In fact, about 80% of our everyday life is changing in our private and business environment. These changes determine all structures in the newly forming social order. In the future we will live differently, work differently, shape the economy differently. Futurology makes the future visible Futurologists design positive models and scenarios for the future. To do so, they break away from purely scientific predictions with which trends can only be statistically extrapolated. Compared to future-researchers, futurologists think holistically and include various parameters. Max Thinius researches and works on topics ranging from digitalization, social development, economy, financial market, urban and regional development, to health, nutrition, education and politics.

The future thinks differently

Starting today, digitization will transform our entire everyday life within the next 5-15 years. City centres will look different. Villages and smaller towns will have the chance to grow again, as more and more people will want to move to rural areas or small-/midsized towns. New digital metropolises may emerge in places that nobody thought possible. Of course, all this does not work automatically, but only if you do something about it. First of all, it is important to remember that the future thinks differently! Our industrial way of thinking is only making limited progress, and above all we are leaving many opportunities and possibilities out of the equation from the outset. This is all the more important because over 80% of our everyday life will change. That is again over 80% chances to improve it. You can’t do that with your head in the sand. But with networking of possibilities, of business, science, society, politics and their joint innovation. So let us concern ourselves with the new quality of life that digitization can bring …

The future lives differently!

Do you still live in the present or already in the future? How will we live in the future, how are we mobile, how will urban and rural structures develop, whole regions and the habits of the people living there? Yes, how will we live? How will our life, our education and our everyday life be structured? Co-Working has become a kind of fashion. One imagines rooms that one rents temporarily. And of course there’s a table football and good coffee. But it’s actually much more than that. There is a deeply developed structure behind good co-working. And not only with a wide range of office services. There are co-working spaces for specific industries. For example, food start-ups settle in a space … right through to legal advice and the mediation of investors, and in the meantime support in company building has also become part of this. In this way, completely new constructs are created, which in their entirety are suddenly larger than existing market sizes. And we are not only talking about the so-called …

Future 4.0 – how future changes our everyday life!

Don’t be afraid of the future! Probably the most entertaining insight into the future, understandable for everyone. Max explains how the future actually works, why we sometimes panic (but don’t have to) and who actually shapes our future. He takes a trip into the world of intelligent refrigerators, new health care systems, smart technologies, self-driving cars in smart cities and wondrous developments promised for our smart everyday lives. He brings all this “smartness” together in an understandable way and shows us why the digital revolution will not overwhelm us in the end, but rather why it offers us all prospective opportunities.

E-Commerce will change it all

From the service society to the life society Trade has always been a major driver of people. Once upon a time, settlements at crossroads developed which became cities. Networking! Crossroads are everywhere today. So is networking. And trade. Even without cities. E-commerce is possible everywhere. And just as supermarkets have changed society, so will e-commerce. There are many prejudices – from the isolation of city centres to the couch potato. But are they true? Discover prospective opportunities and new business models, such as potential for the healthy development of civil society, businesses, cities and communities – even those that until recently you thought were outdated or without a chance. It’s a bit like when the steam engine was introduced. Everyone thought: that’s what’s going to put us out of work. The turnaround brought about by the engines led to more prosperity than ever.

A day in the future

To be very specific: what does a day in the future look like? Seven or 15 years from now. From getting up, through the day, into bed. What does a person experience? Which technology will he use? What skills will he need? How will social, economic and political conditions change? One cannot dive more concretely into the future: especially not in such a comparable way. Because everything is structured around a concrete daily routine, you can directly compare all new findings with your own everyday life and draw conclusions. And to make it even easier, you can experience this lecture with different focal points. All of them are based on a fundamental scenario of social development. Industry focus can be: General everyday life, agriculture, automotive, education, finance, society, commerce in general (online, offline), real estate, consumer goods industry, food, ministries, fashion, NewWork, politics, regions, urban development, telecommunications, entrepreneurship, business in general, and more are possible.
