Testimonials

"The innovation sessions TrendWatching ran for us were excellent - some of the highest-rated ones ever! The trends were totally relevant, insightful, actionable, and beyond our normal experience so that the team made new and surprising connections. They got our team thinking differently and creatively."

Global Innovation Learning Manager,
Hewlett Packard, Singapore 🇸🇬

"The workshop was well organized, and the tools & canvases for innovating and strategizing on products developed by them were extremely useful in these testing times under Covid. The workshop itself was well divided, giving ample time to coordinate and work with team members. The discussions with my team also gave us a lot of insights on how to improve our final presentation."

"Our Entrepreneurship bachelor students are charged with developing products, services, or campaigns that delight customers.  We have incorporated TrendWatching's Academy methodology into our startup curriculum, and the number of "me-too-products" has dropped to 40%. A staggering result."

"Trend-Driven Innovation was the most actionable approach out of all the different methods I reviewed. It brings the students further in their capability to do innovative design work, and thus gives them a competitive edge."
