Bruno is meditating every day and reading over 100 books a year about the latest innovations in science, technology, philosophy and spirituality. He has been experimenting with cutting-edge technologies, investigating new types of governances, exploring new smart cities and new disruptive ways of living.

Bruno Marion is a futurist, an expert on global trends and innovation. For many years, he has been in constant demand for delivering keynotes, doing masterclasses for executives and providing strategic coaching to CEOs on future trends, organizational shifts and radical innovation.

Over the past 20 years, Bruno has advised key executives from companies such as Airbus, AXA, Dior, Danone, Hermes, L’Oréal, Nestle, Reuters, Richemont, SAP, Siemens, Total…

Bruno has discovered that the world is getting better and worse and faster than ever. He shows us how and why we are going through an amazing “reset” in our personal lives, in our families, in our institutions and our organizations. A world megashift of unprecedented scale and speed!

As Bruno says, it’s not anymore about knowing or not about the future but about understanding and making sense out of the complexity of the system in a smooth, accessible way.

With a radical and unique disruptive approach, Bruno will help you to not only see and understand the future but also to design and build the future you want with new practical tools powered by Chaos Science.

His new mind-blowing, paradigm shifting, immediately actionable and sustainable framework will make you thrive in uncertainty, create new breakthroughs, and even benefit from crises in your personal life and your organizations.



Bruno is an Engineer in Physics and holds an MBA. He co-founded the Université Intégrale de Paris, the first think tank in Europe to discuss and experiment the Integral Philosophy. He is an active member of the World Future Society. When he’s not traveling around the world, he shares his time between Paris and his experimental resilient home in the South of France.

Bruno forecasted the emergence of Asia 30 years ago and wrote several best-selling books on Asian cultures. He is the author of the leading book on taking advantage of chaos and uncertainty: Chaos, a User’s Guide.

The beginning

Bruno World Tour 1988

My first round-the-world trip in 1988

How I discovered a chaotic world

For almost 30 years now, or an even longer time according to my parents, I have been trying to understand the world around me. After the usual school-kid experiments, growing a bean seed and the like, I figured I would understand the world by becoming an engineer. Doing so, I did grow in understanding… but not enough to really figure out the world. I very clearly realized that it was no longer science that governed the world but economics and business. So I decided to go in for an MBA. That again did not take me any closer to finding answers to my fundamental questions of the world…

It dawned on me, then, that the answer was not here but maybe… on the other side of the world. I thought I needed to look at things from the other side of the planet and I was off on a world-tour looking for other cultures, in particular the Eastern. For a entire year, at a time when neither Internet nor mobile phones existed yet, I travelled—with as my only luggage a backpack, which contained a few Bermuda shorts, a handful of t-shirts, and under them, a suit, two shirts, and a pair of town shoes.

Those travels exploring the meeting of the West and the East, led to my first book, Asie, Business et Bonnes Manières (1993), which was to become the first French business guide to southeast Asia. This book was followed by others, the last to be published being Réussir avec les Asiatiques (re-issued for the third time in 2013). It also led me to delivering many cross-cultural seminars over the years.

My quest continued…

A new vision for a world in transition

I then thought that we should, after all, return to our base: philosophy. So, like an enthusiastic novice discovering the main philosophic approaches, I began studying both western and eastern schools, from ancient times leading up to the Integral philosophy which, without doubt, is the approach most in resonance with my own vision and our present day world. And that’s how I beacame co-founder of Université Intégrale de Paris.

Ever since, travelling around the world on a yearly basis and after several years of meditation, I have finally found out that the sciences, philosophies, spiritual disciplines, the East, the West, all converged and could very harmoniously give us new keys to understand this changing world.

I wish to share with you what I discovered and understood along the way. I would like thus to show you that the world is getting always better as it suffers more and more and… with increasing speed! To a point where the world has become turbulent and chaotic.

I would like to offer you some very simple tools that are based on one of the most advanced domains of science: the theories of chaos. And these tools will help you in analyzing, understanding and acting better in this turbulent, chaotic world.
