About

My name is Anand Rao.
I work in the area of brands, strategy and innovation, with a focus on futures and scenarios. I have been blogging at different locations since early 2005, but Canvas is my first focused attempt at using the blogging platform for writing.
I live in Singapore, where I moved to in 2015. I work as a brand strategy practitioner at Kantar,  which is one of the leading market research firms in the world.
