William Higham


William Higham

Founder of the Next Big Thing strategic consultancy and author of a book of the same name, William Higham is noted for having a superb understanding of the behaviour and attitudes of UK consumers and for being able to predict emerging trends, knowing what trend is “around the corner”.

Beginning his career promoting rock bands, including The Rolling Stones, motivational speaker William is now an accomplished trends forecaster who analyses what opportunities – good or bad – each trend could generate.

By studying previous consumer behaviour, William is able to work out with incredible accuracy what will happen next, how long a trend will last and what its short- and long-term impact will be. Armed with this information, he helps businesses to decide on the most effective strategy to adopt.

Forecasting is an extremely powerful tool in the consumer sector and many of the leading companies in the field – whether operating in products, service or retail – are eager to know where they should focus their efforts so that they can plan their strategies and budgets to maintain a competitive edge.

Motivational speaker William Higham demystifies the whole process of trend forecasting and always leaves audiences wide-eyed and open-minded, able to take a fresh approach to something that previously had been an overly complicated discipline that was difficult to understand.
