Digital Roundtable


Once a trend hits, you’re too late. Learn how to successfully seize the next big shifts.

Trend forecasts give you information on what’s coming. But in a world where trend cycles move faster than ever, having a plan to act upon those trends is the real must-have. Here at LPK, our Trends & Foresight experts are continually looking to the emergent shifts that will shape 2022 and 2023, then translating them into implications and opportunities for your business.

Join us for an hour-long event to discuss what’s coming next featuring our very own Valerie Jacobs, Chief Growth Officer; Emily Flannery, Head of Trends & Foresight; and Nathan Hendricks, Chief Creative Officer. Jacobs, Flannery and Hendricks will explore the changes on the horizon, their impact on varied industries and categories, and how you can take a Future Fluent approach to your business strategy.
