On Company Casebook this week Linda Lewis is meeting a team of futurists who not only predict the future but also write about it.
They're called Fast Future - and they advise governments and organisations about the likely risks and opportunities in an increasingly unpredictable world. Not only that, they've built a thriving publishing business too, where books are turned around in just a few months instead of years, disrupting traditional publishing models. Linda has been meeting the founder Rohit Talwar and some of his team, to find out what they make of Trump and Brexit, plus the coming clash between Man and Machines, courtesy of their author Gerd Leonhard. Be warned - they believe there's a very real prospect of Nigel Farage becoming Prime Minister. And Trump's diktats they say can only get worse. That's Company Casebook this week on Share Afternoon Tuesday at 2pm And on Friday in Share Morning at 1030.
