I am a trend specialist, business
strategist, keynote speaker, author,
entrepreneur, and a Singularity University
Faculty Member, working with clients
across industries and around the world
with over 20 years’ experience.
I address the contextualisation of trends that have
a direct impact on how executives and business
owners innovate at every touch point of their
organisations – focusing on the future of industries,
consumers and employees.
I advise on strategic thinking and future innovative
growth imperatives to drive sustainable growth and
long term relevance in a changing world. My
experience has given me a deep understanding of
a wide range of industries from retail, farming,
media, textile manufacturing, skin care, hospitality,
food manufacturing and the financial services to
name a few.

More About That Book
Trends and strategy don’t come in a box – they need to work for your consumer, your industry and your employees.
I always start at executive-level to unravel the bottom-line targets by using the Trenovate™ methodology: a
consulting journey towards trend-informed change. This leads into my Culture S.T.A.R.S™ and R.A.P.I.D™ Innovation
workshops that kick-start a practical prototyping and implementation process.
I’ve written a book called “What’s Your Moonshot?”, where I explain what it takes to thrive – rather than merely
survive – in our exponentially changing times. With a future-focused victor mindset, I decode the mega-trends that
are reshaping human behaviour and the way we do business, and explain how to innovate your business so as to
make a positive impact on millions, if not billions, of people.
Singularity University’s faculty are a global network of experts with significant breadth and depth across a wide
range of topics, including exponential technologies, global grand challenges, entrepreneurship, and organizational
innovation. Their faculty help participants develop an exponential mindset and propel their organizations forward
by providing a set of proven tools and frameworks not found elsewhere.
As a strategist, I need to walk the talk. I have owned and sold a smorgasbord of businesses. Currently, I’m involved
in a colourful array of projects and ventures that keep me ticking.
AIRBRN // Chief Exponential O�ce of a gamified online platform that rewards sta� to learn, play and participate.
BROLLIDIP // Co-owner of an umbrella sleeving and branding solution.
TASHAS // Partner of the Tashas restaurant franchise store in Canal Walk, Cape Town.
GROOMA // Partner of a mobile personal grooming app
I speak about the future so that leaders and companies can ask the right questions about what it takes to be
Forever Profitable. I have built my repertoire by speaking to audiences across the globe, and by shifting mindset in
smaller groups or one-on-one coaching sessions.

What I Do
Do you have the right mindset to thrive in
today’s rapidly changing business world?
Are you a victim or an architect of the
In What’s Your Moonshot? trend and innovation
strategist, John Sanei, explains what it takes to thrive –
rather than merely survive – in our exponentially
changing times. With a future-focused victor mindset,
Sanei decodes the mega-trends that are reshaping
human behaviour and the way we do business, and
explains how to innovate your business so as to make a
positive impact on millions, if not billions, of people.
As the foundations of modern economies –
transportation, communication and energy – become
free or virtually free, massive transformative ideas can
now be driven by individual ambition and determination.
No longer the sole domain of nations and global
organisations, these pioneering, game-changing
missions – or Moonshots – are defined by thinking big to
drive change and shape the future.
SO, WHAT’S YOUR MOONSHOT?
