Future whisperer

The inspirational Liselotte Lyngsø is Founding Partner in Future Navigator.  We talk about studying that which does not yet exist.

Talking points

Human revolutionaries have a different set of competencies, they don’t just work in a different box, they have to create the box themselves.

The distance from envisaging to implementation has never been shorter…this is democratising the future

From more to better

Inspiring decision makers

Don’t think outside the box, create the box

Sustainable: I hate the word sustainability, because I would never like to be in a sustainable relationship with my husband. I’m more ambitious than that, I would like to create something better. Sustainable is as good as it gets, I like the abundance theory: That the more flow you get in people, the more movement, the more activity the richer we get in life quality. 

Success:  I managed to be in six countries at once using modern day technologies, and as a result of that I asked these big shipping companies to change their trends.  Future-based disruption. 

Superpower: My ability to break down barriers and move people into territory where change can occur.

Motivation: As I am a mother of four my motivation is empowering the next generation, especially because what I think that we are leaving them with currently is quite embarrassing. They have the power of change – meaning and value seeking. 

Activist: I consider myself to be a futurist, instead of having lots of prefabricated opinions about the world I instead try to focus on the change.

Challenge: Globalising and digitising myself, and hopefully empowering the future generation to start to challenge the society as it is, basically becoming dispensable.

Miracle: For everyone to listen louder to the people who are challenging your world view.

Advice: Don’t feel victimised or scared for the future, look at it as a playing field and their is so many people who would like to contribute and help you out there.
