Web Traffic: Up to 2.9 million pages a month - Future Trends website of Patrick Dixon, Futurist Keynote Speaker

Dr Patrick Dixon: Futurist Keynote Speaker - Global Change Ltd - Futurist Keynote Speakers

This site is written by Dr Patrick Dixon, international conference keynote speaker, author of 16 books and Chairman of Global Change LtdPatrick Dixon is a management consultant, growth strategist and trends analyst, whose clients include many of the world's largest multinationals. He has been ranked one of the 20 most influential business thinkers alive today (Thinkers 50 2005).

Over 15 million different people have used the Global Change website since 1995, created originally as a personal storehouse for press articles and other writing. More than s have been viewed. Around half of all visitors are in management, and most of the rest are in full-time education. Dr Dixon writes the content, produces his own videos and manages the site, often while on the move in taxis, trains and planes.

Why give so much "intellectual capital" away?

Because it helps millions of people. Many business speakers are very protective of their "intellectual capital", anxious about articles, presentations, books or corporate videos being online - some even refuse to allow their powerpoint slides to be loaded onto a technician's PC. That's last-century thinking. The future is about a world where information is free, ideas widely broadcast, use and adaptation encouraged (acknowledging source). The real added-value is knowing exactly how to apply ideas to your own business, yourself, family, community and wider world.

We had 5.5 million unique visitors from July 2003 - March 05 alone, but the site has been running since 1996.


Site visitors peaked in 2007 at over 22,500 different people and 110,000 pages a day - At peak times an average visitor requested 4.5 pages of around 800 words each, over 7 minutes - a total of more than 2,600 hours onsite in 24 hours, not including offline reading time, during which our server can delivered an estimated 88 million words including more than 2,200 book chapters
