Daniel J. Riveong

Please visit Plural Futures for futures and foresight resources.

Hello and welcome, my name is Daniel. I love to connect the dots between individual behaviors, social dynamics, and the technology that enables them.

I bring my wealth of experience in strategic foresight, non-tech futures, digital technologies, and consultancy background to support people in the private sector, international organizations, and consultancies expand their strategic options and navigate uncertainties.

My over 10 years of foresight experience builds upon my 17 years of experience in technology and marketing. I ran a regional digital consultancy and managed global teams in business intelligence and analytics, digital marketing, and back-end development for clients like Kering Group to Microsoft and Seagate for teams in San Francisco to Tokyo.
