ABOUT US
Our Executive Team

We spent the last few years in studying and unlocking change, trends and making sense of the future. Systems Thinking. Foresight. Future Driven Innovation. Mega Trends. Consumer Trends. We are members of various research, think-tanks and trendwatching groups.

We have an extensive network. And we have put everything we learned into Future Station. And it’s awesome!

I am Diana Stafie and I believe we can change the future by choosing to act or not on what happens to us today. To this belief I added extensive training, studies and research on how businesses can manage complex projects and  shape their future through Systems Thinking,  Strategic Foresight and Futures Scenario Planning.

I am part of the 2019 cohort of International Certified Future Strategist program. I am also a certified Strategic Futures Analysis practitioner and an Ambassador in the Global Scanning Network from Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies. I am also Associate Member of the World Futures Studies Federation and part of International Association of Facilitators.

I am also Certified Coach and Ambassador for the Exponential Organization Community (lead by Salim Ismail, Singularity University).

Previously I worked both as consultant in the Big4 environment (Ernst&Young, Romania) and also in a global corporate organisation (Royal DSM, the Netherlands).

And I am Magda Ropotan, an established Innovation Coach in Romania, a practitioner of Design Thinking, Service Design, Foresight, Trend & Future Driven Innovation, and Art of Hosting methodologies.

I am an alumnae of Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies and  Institute for the Future – Palo Alto, California.

I am also currently one of the 16 Master-Facilitators in the world of FORTH Innovation Methodology.

My clients are both large multinationals and smaller companies, in various industries such as retail, insurance, commercial real-estate, services, logistics, telecom or IT. I am also proud to  be a board member at Innovation Labs  Romania  and  Antreprenoria, and a lecturer for Innovation at The Entrepreneurship Academy.

Before consulting, I had a successful career in Honeywell, Genpact and IKEA, in Romania and abroad.

ABOUT

‘We got
trapped in
cost cutting and
continuous improvement.

It usually starts with a visionaire who sees a need or an opportunity in the market. And taps on it! Gets other enthusiasts on board, and together they build expertise, design and launch an offer that people want. Badly. So they get courage.

In this time, the world outside becomes a very different place. Competitors appear from unexpected places. Market behavior is changing. New technologies are promising. Customers seem to know more than they do. But how and who to make sense of all these? It feels too late to catch up. But maybe is not too late to make a leap frog.

Do you think the industry changes and your company not?

Identification of strategic early signs of change is good news for those whose role is maintaining competitive advantage for the organization.The failure is in lack of action, and if you were a decision maker, wouldn’t you like to have an early warning capability available?

Let’s talk about our Strategic Early Signs Alert subscription!

Do we think there is only one future? If not, why do we only plan for one?

Foresight catalyses thinking in alternative futures.
