Facing the Future Together

Why We Exist

We invite industry leaders to meet virtually, once a quarter, to discuss, debate, and share experiences and ideas for the betterment of all. Our goal is not conformity but problem-solving and forward-thinking. We make these discussions and perspectives accessible to everyone, through our presentations and acclaimed free Vision Reports.

Expand your vision

Our VGN members are visionaries who contemplate the future with imagination, curiosity and wisdom.

Our Vision Reports were created for individuals like you, empowering you to remain informed about local or global developments to better anticipate forthcoming trends, events, and disruptions.

Ideas and Perspectives

The fusion of diverse perspectives, real-world experiences, and collaborative exchanges during virtual VGN meetings equips you with invaluable insights and actionable strategies. These resources enable you to gain a deeper understanding of current challenges, identify solutions, and capitalize on business opportunities.

Vision Reports

The insights gathered from our meetings are shared with everyone through our extensive collection of Vision Reports.

These reports offer clarity on current business challenges, potential remedies, and emerging opportunities.

Be In the Room

Each Vision Report's "In The Room" transcript fully captures the nuanced dynamics of opinions and ideas, serving as a catalyst for your own innovative solutions and action plans.

Why VGN Stands out

That’s easy. We prioritize being informative, transparent, and accessible.


Leading subject matter experts join our members in robust discussions, providing not only expert views but also real-world experiences. These firsthand insights allow you to understand what worked, and what didn’t, and evaluate what it means for your business.


VGN Vision Reports’ transparency is unparalleled. We offer full transcripts of meetings, allowing you to track the progress of ideas and understand the nuances of the comments. By knowing who is speaking, you can compare their company’s experiences with your own.


Our commitment to sharing information drives our accessibility. We provide free downloads of Vision Reports to the public and present our content at conferences and seminars. With our Vision Reports, you can access detailed information at no cost to you or your colleagues.
