In Pakistan, Trendhunter CEO Jeremy Gutsche Finds Passion and Innovation
From Jeremy Gutsche:
Today, I am writing this update from Pakistan, more than 10,000 miles from our Toronto office. I’m here for two days of workshops and keynotes to help inspire business leaders not only about innovation, but also on how to reinvent Pakistan for 2015. I’ve been touched by how appreciative people have been for this sort of work. Pakistan has often been labeled as the world’s ‘most dangerous’ country in magazines like The Economist. Having said that, there is a vibrant culture and innovative leaders who are SO PASSIONATE about their country, and wanting to find ways to inspire their people and showcase the creativity that thrives behind the walls of negative media press. For example, in 2009, Trend Hunter covered “Anti-Terrorist Fashion”, the first ever Pakistan Fashion week. The fashion show brought together 30 designers who wanted to counteract the negative press associated with their country by celebrating its colourful couture. It’s ideas like this that the business leaders of Pakistan want to celebrate… and it is ideas like this that Trend Hunter facilitates around the world.
