My name is Aric Dromi
Speaker, futurologist, digital philosopher, and professional troublemaker.


“Not with things as there are but with things as they ought to be”

I have spent my adult life — and most of my childhood — engrossed imagining the future and the potentials that drive it. As someone with atypical curiosity – I found myself sailing with Captain Nemo, escaping the ordinary into the land of wonder.

By high school, I decided that the formal education system is more a pipe designed to feed the “norm” rather than a place to build up curiosity – a lesson I carried with me throughout life. As a result, I chose a path that will always challenge me and the status quo (therefore the troublemaker) but also be governed by a unique side effect – enabling me to look back into the present.

I build up my career on “things that I knew that I didn’t know”, I always took assignments that I hadn’t done before and regularly pushed myself to explore new fields, tools, and methods that would redefine my vantage point on any given challenge.

I currently reside in Gothenburg, Sweden, splitting my time between my role as the in-house futurologist at Volvo cars, sitting on the advisory board of the NTT Innovation Institute, supporting the UNLEASH innovation team and running my company where I travel and change the way we experience the world, the way we think about thinking and transform the way we understand change. I give speeches that frame questions and help people identify and abandon old paradigms and rethink thinking.

I tend to focus on 10 – 15 -year future scenarios, yet an essential part of capturing the future is to explain it, make it tangible and most important, make it relevant. That’s what I do. I tell stories about the future that could happen and help develop concepts around what should happen.


“while most of us are busy looking back at our achievements, a few brave souls are about to step forward and jump into the unknown.”
