Mission & vision

Our mission is to help companies, organisations and sectors to improve the quality and profitability of their innovations and accelerate their transformation, so they can shift to the future in time.
We do this by providing inspiring, easy-to-digest, and relevant information that either provides new insights or supports business decisions already made, always with the highest regard for transparency and sustainability.


Trendforce.one was founded in 2016 by international speaker, trendwatcher, and futurist Richard van Hooijdonk. Since 2010, Van Hooijdonk has held keynotes around the world, about the future of work, life, and business.

His clients include brands and organisations like Nike, Microsoft, Heineken, Unilever, IBM, Google, Vodafone, Huawei, Deloitte, PwC, Interpol, Dubai Police, and the European Commission.

Over the years, Van Hooijdonk’s many keynote lectures and masterclasses led to an increasing number of requests for more in-depth information and predictions, which resulted in the founding of Trendforce.one.
