Rethinking Communication

Apr 19, 2021

My guest this week, Brian David Johnson, is a futurist. A technological futurist, to be more precise. He’s made a career out of creating a vision for a future state — for people, for companies — and then helping them build a path to get there.


He was the first futurist — yes, that was actually his job title — at Intel, and he’s currently a professor at Arizona State University’s Global Futures Laboratory and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society.

Brian is not some street magician, he can’t tell you the future, and he doesn’t have a crystal ball. In his book, The Future You, he provides a simple yet effective approach to actually articulating what you want your future to look like and how to get there, and to realize that far more is in your control than you might believe.
