Nikolas Badminton is a world-renowned futurist, researcher, and media celebrity. He leads the team Exponential Minds, an expert advisory firm that helps organizations, trillion-dollar companies, progressive governments and Hollywood shift their mindset from “what is” to “WHAT IF…” The result is empowered employees, new innovative products and incredible growth that leads to more revenues and a more resilient future.

He has worked with amazing clients, including United Nations, NASA, UK Home Office, Government of Canada, United Way, Google, Microsoft, Rolls Royce, DISCOVER, HSBC, Heineken, Procter & Gamble, AT&T, Young Professionals Organization (YPO), Ellen MacArthur Foundation, IDEO, Singularity University, and hundreds more.

His mind-expanding research and opinion has also been featured on globally on BBC, VICE, The Atlantic, Fast Company, Techcrunch, Business Insider, Huffington Post, Forbes, Sputnik and Venturebeat. He is also writing a chapter for a 2021 book called The Future Starts Now: Expert Insights into the Future of Business, Technology and Society for Bloomsbury.

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

In 2018, we are at the horizon of change and are seeing the third industrial revolution take place with advances never seen before across the digitized communications, renewable energy, and automated transportation Internet. At the heart of all of these is Artificial Intelligence (A.I.).

Nikolas draws on his 20+ years of experience in big data, analytics and A.I. to look at how this revolution is starting and changing society, business, and personal life. The insights he provides gives to you deeper understanding of what he world will look like in 2030 by showing you the techniques, research, and systems that are being deployed across industries, cities, and transportation. He also looks at wider societal implications and the ethics around data, privacy, and how we are all going to be affected.

The Exponential Technology Revolution

The world will change in the next 20 years more than it has in the previous 100. At the heart of that are technologies that are advancing at a pace never seen before – exponentially. Nikolas will provide a deep dive into the key exponentially developing and growing technologies that are changing the world, including Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Robotics, Computational Systems, 3D Printing, Medicine/Neurosystems, Cybersecurity and Bioinformatics, Renewable Energy, Nanotechnology, and Quantum Computing.

He will highlight the ‘signals of change’ that show how quickly the world is changing across industries – finance, agriculture, medicine, media, transportation and logistics, construction, and many more. Nikolas will also provide a view on ethical implications and insights on how these technologies affect planning, policies, and regulations at both the federal and state levels.

The Growth of Smart Cities

Over 1000 smart city pilot projects are in progress today with over 500 of them being developed in China. The future city is going to have systems in place to create the ability to monitor and program the city to react to what is needed in real-time.

With this vision comes the implementation and rollout of renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro), self-driving vehicles (autonomous truck fleets, municipal transport, on-demand taxis, and personal vehicles), electric vehicles, the internet of things, with Big Data and Data Science at the heart of operations. Nikolas will look at how city planning is changing along with the core technologies being deployed and will profile the global cities that are embracing this approach.

The Impact of Big Data, Social Media, and Privacy on Society

The Internet surrounds us, binds us together as a society, and helps us with almost all aspects of our lives. Everything seems to be in its place and useful. But, in 2018 the world is changing. Social media is both the amplifier and controller of our emotions as we go about our daily lives. Algorithms optimize every aspect of lives, and ubiquitous connections across billions of devices capture our every move. The new world won’t look that different but, it will operate completely differently with these systems. Nikolas will help you look deeper into this new world and realize how the normal function of childhood, family and community is being altered and manipulated for profit. And, with our full permission.

Innovative Executives Workshop

This is a 60 to 90 minute workshop to engage all attendees and excite them about the potential for innovation in their organization. It’s a powerful format that works well for meetings of senior executives of 20 to 50 people in size. Ideal for AGMs, Board Meetings, Executive Retreats and Private Conferences.

Futures Ignition Workshop

The 'Futures Ignition Workshop' is a fast paced and energetic exercise that’s perfect for larger groups of 80 to 250 attendees.

Attendees are divided into groups to choose the top-3 disruptive influences that will impact your business and gain pace by 2030. For each of them real business opportunities are identified that can help inform the strategic direction of the organization. Then we get creative and have the groups write epic 2030 newspaper headlines on how your organization will be world-changing.

The groups then take to the stage to present what they discussed and their headlines. This is incredible to get people thinking of new solutions for their future world and to create a group mindset around futures thinking.
