Case Studies

Presentation: Customer First

As part of the BMW Group’s annual Customer First Conference, The Future Laboratory was invited to give an insightful virtual presentation. Delivered online by co-founder Martin Raymond, the one-hour futures presentation detailed the key trends rising after a decade of change and expansion as we continue into the Transformative Twenties. The presentation was followed by a live Q&A session, giving the BMW team the chance to ask questions about the trends delivered. 

“Fantastic virtual presentation! Thank you for sharing insights into how brand outreach is transforming with digital at the core of this outreach. That was a truly inspirational talk.” 
- BMW Group

Presentation: Futures Series
The Future Laboratory were delighted to join Solvay in a series of 3 online presentations, delivered by co-founder Chris Sanderson. This partnership sought to inspire and challenge the thinking of the delegates at Solvay, providing them with the future macro drivers, market trends and social shifts of the three core Solvay pillars, People, Planet and Growth. 
“We asked The Future Laboratory to give us insight about the challenges for a purpose-led company on some strategic issues while the Transformative Twenties begin to unfold. The presentation delivered by Chris was absolutely amazing, a lot of exciting and interesting ideas that pushed us to think 'out of the box' of our future.” - Solvay
Kevin Murphy
Presentation: Beyond the New Normal
Delivered to Kevin Murphy's EMEA and US partners, our Beyond the New Normal presentation was created to drive assurance to the partners and distributors that the beauty brand is focused on future-proofing its business. This presentation unpacked consumer habits in lifestyle, beauty, wellness, retail and digital trends through the lens of consumers, brand responses and how it all manifests in an experiential setting. 

"We have gained much from our relationship with The Future Laboratory and LS:N Global. We have been able to create certainty around client behaviours and predict the future with the macrotrends and microtrends presented. The data has been invaluable as we move towards a prosperous future." - KEVIN.MURPHY
