"Exploring the future can bring great rewards if you are right – but losses can be immense if you are wrong. There's no small or easy task. The future is not for us to see. A lot of research, expertise, intuition and even good luck are required in order to stay ahead. Fortunately, by working together with our customers, we have managed to succeed over the years".
