For Rohit Bhargava, predicting trends is about “curating observations of the accelerating present.” An authority on trends, marketing, and innovation, he runs the Non-Obvious Company, a consultancy that helps leaders and their teams see what others miss, enabling them to identify and seize new opportunities. Through trainings and workshops, Mr. Bhargava’s team helps companies with innovation, leadership, mindful management, sales, marketing, and employee engagement.

He has been recognized alongside visionary business leaders like Sir Richard Branson and Tom Peters as a “Top 100 Thought Leader in Trustworthy Business Behavior.” He is a popular keynote speaker and the author of five books, including his 2015 Wall Street Journal bestseller Non-Obvious: How To Think Different, Curate Ideas & Predict The Future, which he updates annually with new predictions. In addition to consulting and speaking, Mr. Bhargava teaches marketing and storytelling at Georgetown University. His personal “Influential Marketing Blog” has been featured in global media and named by AdAge magazine as one of the top 25 marketing blogs in the world.
