This is Why We Do What We Do

They are phenomenal. They think completely out of the box. And they are my go-to whenever I am challenged with the need for insight or opinion. They have made a real difference to my business over the last one year.

Head of Strategy

Integrated Oil & Gas Company
The biggest reason we engaged WhatNext was their ability to solve our industry’s toughest questions with the best minds who knew the answers. We got more insights from a 60-minute one-o-one call with WhatNext’s FutureMaker than I had been able to obtain from previously hired traditional consultants.

Urban Mobility Innovator

Global Mobility Company
I have used WhatNext twice. Once for scouting out solutions and the second to get an answer to a troublesome business question. They connected me with some of the brightest people and have saved me tons of time.

Head of Scouting

North American Utility Company
We were at a crossroads while undertaking a new strategic initiative that would impact our business model to great extent in future. We lacked the visibility and right knowledge. WhatNext helped us gain critical insights thanks to 1:1 relationship with individual subject matter experts. It was well worth the investment.

Acquisition Specialist

Mobility & Convergence Company
We needed to develop an exponential transformation and future growth strategy, including the evaluation of potential technology scouting and acquisitions in Mobility industry. WhatNext’s one-on-one style of consulting with hand-picked industry experts was simpler to work with more focused engagements. Moreover, they helped us assimilate a great deal of foresights and distilled it into a workable strategic plan.

AVP – Energy & Utility

A European Mobility Major
WhatNext is awesome! WhatNext’s technology experts did an excellent job of surfacing key threats and opportunities in near future and devised specific steps to address them. They had challenged our key executives to look and think outside the box and develop an exponential transformation strategy to ensure we evolve over the next few years successfully.

Futurist – Automotive

North American Automotive Company
The expert that they found now advises our board and management team. They got me connected in a week and delivered my project in just a few weeks.

Sr Vice President - M&A

A Global Oil Major
We operate in the most competitive echelons of global markets, and we had some of the specific questions that only genuine technology experts could answer. WhatNext helped us to understand and prepare for unknown unknowns that would otherwise be unexpected and to guide decisions that help our company stay on course and predict its future position.

VP – Research & Development

Global Mobility Major
We were seeking an objective, yet constructive advisory that could challenge our organizational thinking approach while aligning our future strategic initiatives. We were right in choosing WhatNext and would recommend them highly to anyone facing situations that demand unbiased, practical, and timely advice.

Top CEO Of An European Mobility Company
We are well connected within our Mobility industry but outside we’re not. WhatNext connected us seamlessly with experts from other industries that gave us a new perspective on how to develop superior forward-looking capabilities and capture opportunities that would otherwise be unseen. Without doubt, our organization has developed a great partnership with WhatNext over last year.
