Nikolas Badminton (Futurist Speaker & Advisor)

June 5, 2020

As foresight becomes a more important tool for corporations to guide decision making through uncertain times we thought it useful to spend some time with Nikolas Badminton – a world-renowned keynote speaker, consultant, and media producer now based in Toronto Canada and resident at StartWell.

In this discussion with our CEO Qasim Virjee, Nik breaks down what it means to be a Futurist, relates personal experiences from working through the pandemic and much more.

The session was recorded live from our event venue on King Street West in downtown Toronto – the same space which played host to Nik’s 2019 edition of Dark Futures, a series he explains towards the end of this episode.
