Keynote Topics

Innovating through Ritual

Explore case studies of how the most innovative people productionize out-of-the-box thinking with their teams. This presentation consists of a curated list of actual best practices, created and used by the world's top innovators. These best practices are organized around the concept of imagined orders -- hierarchies we put in place throughout our daily lives.

Innovation Tactics

Leaders today are under increased pressure to find winning innovation strategies, but there are few avenues to learn how others do it. Gathered from personal interviews with today’s business leaders, this session focuses on reporting actual innovation techniques used in business today, organized into specific objectives, such as “internal buy-in,” or “consumercentricity.”

Innovators in Business

Through hundreds of interviews with leaders at the world’s top companies, Trend Hunter’s Business Innovation Group has gathered a range of unique programs, initiatives and approaches that support innovation and push people to be curious, insatiable and willing to destroy. These stories will inspire leaders to take responsibility for disrupting the status quo to get the most from themselves and their teams.

He delivers a lasting message on elevating business tactics through storytelling and real world examples that makes you think long after his session has ended. Jonathon is about as genuine and approachable as one gets on the speaker circuit. His greatest joy next to his family is helping others change the world – one customer at a time."

Jonathon possesses a rare gift of drawing parallels between seemingly unrelated industries, evoking a sense of curiosity and wonder from his audience. I look forward to experiencing him live once again, when the opportunity arises." Shez Mehra, President, The 194 Group
"I had the fortune of being introduced to Jonathon in 2015 through a mutual contact. From the first time I met Jonathon, I was amazed at his level of maturity, confidence, authenticity and, perhaps most importantly, humility. Then, in 2017, I had the privilege of attending the Future Festival World Summit in Toronto. Not only was this event among the best business conferences I have ever attended, but I specifically remember Jonathon's keynote bringing the message home.
"He has mastered the art of converting Trend Hunter's massive data into insights that are specifically relevant to the future of your business..."

Jonathon is able to captivate an audience comprised of C-Suite leaders from the biggest companies in the world. At the same time, he will make you feel like you are the most important person in the room and the message resonates on a genuinely personal level. I cannot say enough about Jonathon and the Trend Hunter team and consider myself fortunate to have attended his session." Shubh Mann, Marketplace Director, ADP
