Richard Worzel is a futurist, and a professional member of the World Future Society. He makes his living by helping corporations and industry associations plan intelligently for the future. He focuses on North America, but deals with global issues. His client list includes companies like Coca-Cola, Ford, Lexus, IBM, Motorola, the U.S. Navy, the National Research Council, and the Clerk of the House of Commons of Canada, among many others.

The services he offers are tailored to the needs of the client, but fall into the following major areas: Keynote Speeches, Workshops and Seminars, and Innovation Sessions. Companies can also ask him to work with their planning groups on an on-going basis, or for a specific part of their planning cycle. He has also been asked to assess companies in which a client is considering making an investment, especially in technology companies where he may have some familiarity with the field.

As a conference presenter, he is often asked to make a keynote speech, typically to either kick off the conference and set the tone; or to end the conference with a bang, wrapping it up and sending the participants home with some specific thoughts to consider, and takeaways they can use immediately. Every speech is individually tailored to the needs of the conference in consultation with the client, and clients get to view and comment on Richard’s remarks before he reaches the stage.
