Thomas Klaffke

I am a researcher based in Germany. Currently, I am exploring thought-provoking ideas to build a better world with my newsletter Creative Destruction (2,300+ subscribers). I have a Masters in Futures Studies and worked at several foresight and innovation consultancies. My last job involved building a community for business changemakers (i.e. those wanting to change the business status quo) and helping businesses become more sustainable and resilient.
