Thought leadership marketing
"Together with the Futures Platform team, we have taken an ambitious approach to positioning the company as a thought leader in the field of strategic foresight, and this conference sits well with that aim", says Markko Vaarnas, Chairman of the Board of Futures Platform.
"The Futures Platform team also has what it takes to be a thought leader. There are experienced intelligence professionals and future studies experts on board who have seen the value of organizing events that bring people together to share thoughts and get inspired. Hosting an event is a fruitful way of positioning a SaaS product company for which sharing best practices plays a significant role in making sure the product adds value in its customer organizations", Vaarnas continues.
