Summary (if you're in a hurry.)

Prof. Bernd Thomsen is a futurist, strategist and innovation expert. Over the last three decades he almost always turned out to be right (while his forecasts in the early days were not taken seriously): He predicted emerging India. Today India is one of the worlds fastest growing economy. But he forecasts more than world economic developments: Different societal changes and new industries too. For example to-go habits and rising coffee markets when nobody knew starbucks. In the early 90's of the last century he predicted the sharing economy, which came true 20 years later (Airbnb, Uber, Wework, car2go, DriveNow). The overwhelming majority of his forecasts comes true. And he developes products you use every day, like that longerfresh milk globally 75% of households drink daily. It stays fresh 3 weeks and is cappuccino-friendly foamable (before it wasn't foamable and gone bad after 3 days).

Vita. (if you have more time).

 

As Chairman & CEO Prof. Ben Thomsen is the head of THOMSEN GROUP International Strategy Consultants, in short TGISC® which is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany. TGISC® is the world’s leading strategy consultancy specializing in practice-proven innovations. It has been active in all major industries and as government consultants for more than 30 years. It is the first corporate group offering holistic top management consulting with a strategic market focus and a specialization in innovation.

 

Over 30 years ago, Ben Thomsen founded just one of thousands of companies in Germany. Without any employees. Without any clients. All he had was a typewriter with keys that kept jamming up. And an answering machine without an official permit. That explains Thomsen’s skeptical look when he opened the door to find Holger Nissen of the phone service office standing there. But the answering machine wasn’t the reason for Nissen’s visit; instead, it was a small budget from the German postal service. Nissen was from Deutsche Bundespost. The first client was on board - for more than one decade and under the new company name: Deutsche Telekom.


Thirty years later the internationally operating TGISC® is a global market leader. Worldwide, there is not a single competitor, no corporate or strategy consultancy, that develops and realizes innovations on the basis of futurology and verifying market research.


TGISC® finds solutions for tomorrow and beyond, which immediately guarantee the clients market leadership, attractive returns, and significant value – today. With the innowait system,*** which is unrivalled anywhere in the world, THOMSEN GROUP International Strategy Consultants Estd. 1984 determines how people will live in 2050. And what the clients‘ customers expect of it today. This is how TGISC® creates product innovations, price strategies or sales solutions.


This system is now also being taught at the university level. It's said that THOMSEN GROUP International Strategy Consultants Estd. 1984 is the "most future-oriented" one among the top consultancies.

 


But let’s take things in order.

 

In 1984, Ben Thomsen founded the first company in the THOMSEN GROUP as the founding partner after completing his studies of medicine and business administration. Thomsen developed various working systems.


Prof. Thomsen gives specialized talks and presentations on an ongoing basis and is a sought-after guest for radio and TV interviews. He also designs and leads top management seminars and workshops. His consulting practice focuses on market strategies, with special emphasis on product development, pricing strategies, placement solutions, media presence, and human capital. In this context enterprises like Deutsche Telekom, Banco Santander, Allianz Group, PAYCHEX New York Inc., Chinese Sany, Japanese Panasonic et al. belong to his portfolio of references, partially for more than 20 years.


Since 1993, Ben Thomsen has frequently been tapped to serve on the selection committee for scholarships to support the gifted and talented in the Federal Republic of Germany, under the auspices of various German presidents.


In 1999, Thomsen developed the Resulting System, which became the basis for multiple companies in the TGISC®, whose principal shareholder is Prof. Ben Thomsen.


That same year, Thomsen founded a charitable German non-profit organization, where he has served as chairman of the board ever since. This organization is a donation fund for children that supports silently and discretely those little ones  who usually are not heard: whether in the beginning mistreated and neglected children in the Bavarian electoral district of Edmund Stoiber had been supported in order to have them regain trust and believe in life, or supporting activities in Ukraine where 160.000 children were abandoned by their parents. Those children had to live in "boarding schools" led by uniformed staff and sometimes they didn't have wastewater disposal. Up to 10 percent of these teenagers committed suicide within the first year according to UNICEF data. Cooperations with e. g. n-tv or José Carreras children's cancer donation are helpful helping.


He is co-founder of the Research Center for Real Estate Innovation at the EBS University of Business and Law (European Business School). He furthermore lectures at the university named after the Jain family (Anshu Jain is ex co-chairman of Deutsche Bank).


Prof. Ben Thomsen is member of the Überseeclub and is involved at (i. a. as a representative for high-level political summits) the American Chamber.


Prof. Thomsen is married and has three sons and one daughter. He lives in Hamburg. In his free time, he enjoys playing golf and meeting up with friends, boating and travel, especially to international cities. His favorite city is New York City, where he enjoys going for a run in Central Park, just as he does around the Sydney Opera House or Hamburg’s Alster lake.
