Professional Disruptor, Futurologist and Digital Philosopher
Looking into a new way of thinking about how things work, Aric Dromi helps advance philosophical research and related fields through innovation & technology. He looks at emerging global trends and helps identify the strategic implications of those trends. An essential part of capturing the future is being able to explain it, make it tangible and most important, make it relevant. That’s exactly what he does. He tells stories about the future that could happen and helps develop concepts around what should happen. His work is industry-agnostic, and covers trend activity in the realms of science & technology, economics, politics, demographics and environmental issues.
Aric has spent his adult life —and most of his childhood— engrossed imagining the future and the potentials that drive it. As someone with atypical curiosity, he found himself sailing with Captain Nemo, escaping the ordinary into the land of wonder.
By high school, he decided that the formal education system is more a pipe designed to feed the “norm” rather than a place to build up curiosity, a lesson he carried with him throughout life. As a result, he chose a path that will always challenge him and the status quo (therefore he considers himself a troublemaker) but also be governed by a unique side effect, enabling him to look back into the present. He built up his career on “things that he knew that he didn’t know,” he always took assignments that he hadn’t done before and regularly pushed himself to explore new fields, tools, and methods that would redefine his vantage point on any given challenge.
Aric currently resides in Gothenburg, Sweden, splitting his time between his role as the in-house futurologist at Volvo cars, running his own company where he travels and changes the way we experience the world, the way we think about thinking and transform the way we understand change. He gives speeches that frame questions and help people identify and abandon old paradigms and rethink thinking.
