I find New World Same Humans to be essential reading every week. David’s anchor theme – how humans are affected by changes in the world, and especially tech – is of central importance to our times and how we should think.

Mark Curtis – Co-Founder, Fjord. Head of Thought Leadership and Innovation, Accenture Interactive

My favourite weekend reading. Challenging and provocative, inviting us into a deeper conversation about issues at the heart of business and government. I always come away with ideas that I'm playing with for the rest of the week.

Anjali Puri - Global Director, Qualitative Offer and Expertise at Kantar

An excellent synthesis of today's most relevant signals and trends, always packaged with valuable context.

Noah Flower - Director of Strategy and Foresight, Salesforce

David Mattin is the best writer among all futurists and trendspotters globally. I've waded through countless newsletters and blogs across two decades looking for insights to share with my clients, so I know what I’m talking about. Combines a laser-focused trend radar with a classical English writing style. Irresistable, and professionally invaluable.

Magnus Lindkvist - Futurist, international speaker, author

Full of sharp analysis and creative forward-thinking. In contrast to other analysts, David Mattin manages to diagnose our post-digital society while maintaining an optimistic world view.
