Frank is a Distinguished Vice President and Research Fellow at research firm Gartner, and the Chief of Research for Gartner Futures Lab.
Frank always looks for a different perspective in every topic that he tackles. He takes on complex subjects, walks at the edge of them, and then brings them back to the core of what matters. Called an “agent provocateur”, he challenges conventional wisdom with a philosophical touch, a bit of humor, and a ton of insight.
As a futurist, Frank believes that the future is nothing more than the collective imagination of people in the present. His job? To unlock the creativity hidden in all that imagination. The goal of futuring is to capture zeitgeist, to drive self-reflection, and to trigger a change today.
As an digital ethicist, Frank believes that technology has a moral footprint. Technology triggers behaviors and amplifies everything that is good and bad.
His quest is to teach the world on how to appreciate uncertainty, and how to be a positive contributor to society.
