Meet Barbara van Veen, Futurologist

Our markets are changing rapidly. But forewarned is forearmed :)

My specialty is to deliver practical and actionable insights into the ways managers can best assess emerging change in the business environment. The heart of the matter is:

Do you scan the right issues, and do you interpret them correctly?

My clients are in various industries: business services, finance, hospitality, manufacturing, trade, and health care. Next to 15+ years of experience as a futurist, I bring actual business cases from all those industries to the table.

In addition, I'm doing my Ph.D. at Delft Technological University. I am investigating how managers notice and interpret emerging change, and how this information gets integrated into the decision-making process.

I am also an experienced speaker for groups between 2 and 1,000 participants, and I give the occasional guest lecture at Delft University of Technology and Nyenrode Business University.
