Matt Thornhill, Managing Partner, Institute for Tomorrow

Matt Thornhill, Managing Partner, Institute for Tomorrow


Some people spend their entire careers trying to make their mark. Matt has been making his mark since day one. From his early days at Ogilvy in New York to when he was the new business manager at The Martin Agency as it grew four-fold to become a national player, Matt has been making a difference for clients.

Called a "Renaissance man" by many, Matt is a talented speaker, author, copywriter, designer, techno-geek, and futurist. Like John Martin, Matt's especially skilled at seeing the big picture and connecting the dots that others miss.

For SIR, Matt runs the Institute for Tomorrow think tank, which is the natural evolution of its two earlier iterations — the Boomer Project and GenerationsMatter. More clients want to understand what's coming, so Matt and John have expanded their focus beyond generational dynamics to include demographic and cultural trends affecting everyone's future.

Frequently a top-rated keynote speaker, Matt inspires audiences with his insights and implications on "the future we already know."
