Business futurist Morris Miselowski has hypothesised the coming emergence of the flexitarian diet and its potential impact on the food industry.

Flexitarianism is a dietary trend of mostly plant-based food with the occasional inclusion of meat. Miselowski’s thesis is that the rise of veganism and consumer interest in where and how our foods are grown is

Are you a closet Flexitarian?

Date posted: April 9, 2019

Yesterday’s’ co-ordinated vegan rights protest, blocking off Melbourne streets and causing chaos at various farms and abattoirs around Australia, may well become a defining moment in our future food landscape.

Over a decade ago, when I first worked with Farmers and Horticulture groups, I suggested there was the beginning of a consumer-led desire to reconnect to the land and its produce and an increasing questioning of where our foods were grown and how.

We explored the areas of AI, IoT, Health, Social Entrepreneurship, Blockchain, Mobility, Cybersecurity, FinTech and more and found technology that untangles traffic in real time, truly portable blood testing devices, the potential for invitro fe

Why Red Bull is first and foremost a marketing giant before it is a drinks company - The New Daily

Red Bull, the manufacturer of the world’s pre-eminent energy drink, is more of a marketing phenomenon than a beverage outfit, despite the fact that it cranks out six billion cans of its product a year. In just 30 years it has managed to cement itself in the world’s psyche, to the point that it’s known by millions who have not even necessarily tried its products. “It’s building a brand, but the brand may not be the drink,” said marketing expert from Curtin University, Dr Russell Kingshott.

With the Commonwealth Games as a backdrop of sporting excellence, it's a great time to look ahead and ponder what the future of sports, athletes and spectators might be, do, train, watch and enjoy in the next few decades and in my #FutureChat media segments this week we explored:

10 ways the world will have changed by 2031 / live on Hong Kong 3, ABC WA, ABC FNQ

Gen A's (born 2002 - 2025) beginning Prep this week, will finish high school in 2031 and emerge into a world that will be so different to today's that they might as well be living on Mars (and they might be). In this weeks on air segments I chatted about 10 significant ways the world will have changed by 2031, and what we can do now to get them, ourselves and our businesses ready for the very near world ahead:

  1. Gen A won’t use technology, they will BE technology - tech will be so ordinary, ubiquitous and built into every surface and object that we will speak to it, play with it, and engage with it as if it were anot

I have long held that society and beauty, alongside everything else about being human, is being forced to reinvent itself to better suit a homocyborg world and despite the doom and gloom of technology being irresponsible it can and does act as force of good, if only humans will use it that way, in this latest series of article in news.com.au, Rebecca Baker and I explored the changing face of globalised beauty and what beauty might mean and look l

12 things that’ll seem ludicrous in our lifetime / news.com.au, daily telegraph, courier mail, sunshine coast daily, Hong Kong Radio 3, ABC Far North

Date posted: October 30, 2017

We so often look forward to what we might have in the future, that its fun to stop for a minute and think about what we won't have in the future, and this week News.com.au's Gary Nunn reached out to ask exactly that... WITHIN our own lifetime, people will scoff at the thought of sitting on a flight for 22+ hours across the world. It’s one of many things that’ll rapidly seem unfeasible to the upcoming generation. Elon Musk recently revealed plans for a next-generation spacecraft that could fly to “most pla
