Trend training

Want to develop more meaningful innovations? Looking for ways to understand people’s future needs better?

Train your trend muscles!

Understanding trends provides you with a solid foundation to create change. So let’s activate your forward looking potential during a Trend Masterclass or Trend Training.


Trend Masterclass

Learn about the art of trendwatching in this online Masterclass, where I’ll take you through the trend research framework.

My trend research model helps you to take a structured approach to researching trends instead of gazing into crystal ball.

Besides the trend research framework, I will share my valuable knowledge and 20+ years of experience in researching the future.

Discover the latest tools, techniques and case studies to stay ahead of the curve and make informed decisions.

👉 Previous date: February 22, 9.30-11.30 CET

Trend Training

Learn the foundations of trend research in an interactive way! Based on my years of experience I have developed a dynamic trend training with a focus on learning-by-doing. This means you will put trend theory and frameworks into practice right away.

A Trend training includes:

  • Introduction to futures thinking
  • Essential trend theory and frameworks
  • Scan: learn the art of looking sideways
  • Analyse: practice connecting the dots
  • Apply: make ‘trendslations’ for your organisation
  • Reflection time to brainstorm how to integrate trends in your team

“Els her training is really hands-on and gave me, as a newbie, a good introduction into the world of trends. I really loved the part of the workshop where I had to go outside myself for scanning!”
