Michael is a transformational catalyst who inspires audiences globally with spellbinding insights into the changing consumer culture. You can view videos of his trademark roller-coaster rides through the “landscape of now” here.
“The successful companies of tomorrow will address the changing business and consumer values of today.”
— Michael Tchong
Michael has created a framework of eight “Ubertrends” that are the driving forces behind a vast majority of transformations taking place in society today. An Ubertrend is a massive wave cascading through society, leaving many subtrends in its wake. Unlike typical trends, Ubertrends change values in the population, which explains why technology is contributing permanent behavioral changes in society. During his talks, Michael connects the dots for attendees, helping them better understand the future. The downloadable Ubertrends Map below does the same for five out of the eight Ubertrends Michael tracks.
Michael’s Books Speak Volumes
Like his presentations, Michael’s books are truly state of the art. Each pièce de résistance is massively data-based, thoroughly researched, gorgeously designed and beautifully illustrated with hundreds of photographs, charts and cartoons. This is not diarrhea of the mind as most books tend to be. Social Engagement Marketing features no less than 202 social media vendors, each carefully dissected for their features, or lack thereof.
Trendscape 2004 by Michael Tchong
Trends come. Trends go. The only constant is change. Trendscape 2004 is designed for those who suffer from a gnawing suspicion that, somehow, they’re missing out. Staying on top of trends can be a daunting task. Managing long reading lists while googling endlessly is a significant time drain. That’s why Michael wrote Trendscape 2004. It’s designed to keep readers au courant. While you might think a book about trends would be outdated quickly, the truth is most trends don’t change that fast, particularly massive waves hat Michael dubs “Ubertrends.”

Social Engagement Marketing
The social dialog propelled by social media’s revolutionary digital platforms that are reinventing consumer interaction. This trend is leading to a new marketing discipline, one analyst and inspirational speaker Michael Tchong dubs “social engagement marketing.” This explains why Michael created an innovative book with the same title. “It’s not about the media,” says Michael, “it’s about engaging a whole new generation of consumers and business executives, whose values are being reshaped almost daily by their new-found social dialog.”
