How Futurists Predict:

Discussions with fellow consultants and strategists in the role that business futurists play resulted in the following. Business futurists and marketing strategists are constantly reading, researching, and studying the trends.

Information = facts or data. Understanding = grasping the significance of data. Knowledge = certainty of data. Wisdom = proper evaluation of the relative importances of data. Responsibility = a willingness to do, or not do, and to be accountable for the results. Wisdom and responsibility are necessarily companions. Once data is obtained and validated, it must be understood. Only when it is fully grasped, with an understanding of how it relates to the greatest good, can it be called knowledge.

Knowledge is not always static, and needs to be renewed from time to time. Certain data will always be true, others will change with the growth of such things as population or technology. Information by itself is sterile, becoming powerful only when a creative linkage is formed between information and application. When, where and how information can be leveraged to make a quantum leap in solving a pressing problem or a number of problems is what futurists strive to do for their clients.

Business Futurist, Professional Speaker, Technology speaker, Internet speaker, Sales speaker, Marketing, Marmel Consulting, Software program, Author, Marlene Brown Marlene's accomplishments
Marlene has walked her talk in meeting the challenges in her life. She went up in a hot air balloon to overcome her fear of flying, and walked on the bottom of the ocean to overcome her fear of water. Although she was a techie neophyte eight years ago, she has innovatively embraced technology, change, and the future, and now shares that knowledge in her speaking engagements and with her consulting clients.

When not consulting, speaking, or writing, Marlene can be found improving her technological skills, playing the keyboard, spending time with her children, or enjoying her grandchildren. She loves to read and research, write, listen to music, dance, meditate, and work out. She says, "My greatest accomplishment is, and always will be, my 5 very special and talented children -- Brad, Vanessa, Christina, Melanie, Stacy -- and 4 prescious grandchildren -- Jeremiah Elias, Josha Nova, Rachel Marie, and Trevor James."

A professional who clearly has her priorities in order, Marlene's new and timely concepts will help stimulate you and your people to recognize the trends in your industry, turn your vision into action, and even enjoy the process!
