SPEAKER: Paul Hanus
Futurist, Associate Director, Patient & Ecosystem Insight Practice
Marketing and Patient Access Patient Value Practice
No one can predict the future, but in order to shape the environment, you can think about it systematically—turning uncertainty into inspiration, while merging creativity and resilience into better decisions today. This is what we call Foresight—a discipline that enables organizations to envision coherent and functional future perspectives, possibilities, and "what if" scenarios to inspire innovation, explore new markets and growth opportunities, shape strategy, and guide policy.
Paul came to UCB to help the organization develop a deeper, forward-looking understanding of environmental change and what it means to its business—both as longer-term investments, and also short- and medium wins. He spent several years at Kantar Futures, the leading global Foresight and Innovation consultancy owned by the marketing communications and research conglomerate WPP. From the future of banking, scent, and leisure cruising to the future of food, consumer health, and pharmaceuticals, Paul has consulted with numerous Fortune 500 clients across a wide variety of industries to help them better plan for the future of their categories, businesses, and brands and to develop tangible strategic roadmaps and action plans for getting there.
His role at UCB is to help expand UCB’s perspective on what’s possible in the future (both near and far) and make it actionable across the various practices, functions, and business units, as well as to serve as a cultural change agent. Prior to his experiences in Foresight, Futures, and Innovation consulting, Paul held a handful of roles in advertising, ranging from account management and planning to new business. He has an MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Kenan-Flagler Business School and a BS in Advertising from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
