It usually starts with a visionaire who sees a need or an opportunity in the market. And taps on it! Gets other enthusiasts on board, and together they build expertise, design and launch an offer that people want. Badly. So they get courage.
In this time, the world outside becomes a very different place. Competitors appear from unexpected places. Market behavior is changing. New technologies are promising. Customers seem to know more than they do. But how and who to make sense of all these? It feels too late to catch up. But maybe is not too late to make a leap frog.
We spent the last few years in studying and unlocking change, trends and making sense of the future. Systems Thinking. Foresight. Future Driven Innovation. Mega Trends. Consumer Trends.
We are members of various research, think-tanks and trendwatching groups. We have an extensive network. And we have put everything we learned into Future Station. And it’s awesome!

I am Diana Stafie and I believe we can change the future by choosing to act or not on what happens to us today. To this belief I added extensive training, studies and research on how businesses can manage complex projects and shape their future through Systems Thinking, Strategic Foresight and Futures Scenario Planning.
I am part of the 2019 cohort of International Certified Future Strategist program. I am also a certified Strategic Futures Analysis practitioner and an Ambassador in the Global Scanning Network from Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies.
