About the Session:

Not to be missed, TPIE’s Opening Session brings back Christine Boland, one of the world’s most insightful and relevant trend analysts.

“This will certainly be a decisive decade,” Christine says, adding she will set out how the spirit of the time is constructed and what drives people.

With this in hand, she will provide clarity and insight into how you can make optimum use of the openings and opportunities this knowledge delivers - particularly from your own perspective, and for your own brand and organization.

Christine identifies three Principles of Progress which will resonate with consumers in upcoming months:

  • Define Your True North
  • Add Meaningfulness
  • Create Value from Your Values

You’ll also learn what the word 'connectioneur' means, and how you can become one.

The plant industry is in an ideal position to facilitate connections with one another, and with nature, which has become a priority need for humans everywhere.

About Christine:

When you understand the spirit of the time, you will see what drives people, and if you know what drives people, anticipating their wishes and desires will become the next obvious step.

I’ve been doing this all my life and find it’s only becoming even more fun and interesting as time progresses. I’ve been lucky to have had the opportunity of lecturing worldwide, across every continent.

As well as giving presentations on the spirit of the time and trend analysis, I work for the University of Amsterdam Academy as a (C-level) consultant programme manager of their ‘The Future Of Strategy’ executive programme.

TPIE’s Opening Session is included with your TPIE trade show admission badge.
