Dentsu’s iProspect has unveiled its latest thinking in this year’s Future Focus 2022 report, which brings a new perspective on how media intersects with society and societal trends.
Within its 60 plus pages, marketers are invited to explore the new intersections of media through three mega trends; The Next Normal, Empathy and Responsibility, and Personal Privacy
Available now to download, these megatrends are broken out into ten easily digestible insights, observations, practical case examples and key takeaway advice segments for companies and marketers to quickly and effectively leverage to accelerate their brands.
“The global mass trauma experienced from the pandemic has quickly been forgotten in our daily narrative, leaving behind a new set of behaviours, values and needs. This report explores the intersections in our lives where tension plays a part as we adapt to new ways of living,” said author Sam Cousins, chief strategy officer, iProspect Australia.
The Future Focus 2022 report covers:
- The intersection of Next and Normal
We find ourselves at an intersection of next, and normal. Consumer behaviour has so rapidly changed over the last few years we have seen more change in the way many people live, work, shop, and socialise than any time in the past 70 years.

This has seismically changed over the last two years for multiple but on a more philosophical level, customers have changed in their demands from brands on how they want to be understood.

- The intersection of Personal and Private
Biometric identifiers have worked their way into our everyday life, be it finger scanning at airports or on our phones. Our health data is shared across apps, across devices, and across companies. Unique identifiers exist for us in both the online and offline world in an era where the intersection between the personal world and private world becomes ever more relevant.
