What lies ahead for 2019?

Business strategy firm Flux Trends, using the T.R.E.N.D.S acronym, delves into the key trends for 2019 across six trend areas.

Its latest report, 'Aftershocks and Blowbacks – Adapting to Bombardment Stress', tracks the ripple effect of the political, economic and socio-cultural upheavals the world has witnessed and how this will affect businesses in 2019.

Azania Mosaka spoke to Dion Chang, trend & design consultant at Flux Trends about the findings of the report.
