The presentations held by Oltmans van Niekerk zoom in from Macro trends to the product level. We touch upon the most important trend research and consumer insight and explain what to do with it on a strategy, retail and product level.

We enjoy lecturing as it is a direct way of sharing knowledge and interacting with people, a presentation make our books come alive.

Examples of topics that we like to talk about are:

– Macro trends, envision the world in 2030

– Consumer Insight 2018>

– Colour, Materials and Design directions for 2018

– The Future of Food

– Wellness and Wellbeing

If you want to book Oltmans van Niekerk for a presentation, please include information on the desired date, topic, venue and audience.

All talks can be combined with a workshop or an inspirational brainstorm.
