Unveiling SNS’s 2021 Predictions

Thursday, December 3, 2020
2:30-4:30pm PT • 5:30-7:30pm ET

It is often said that no one could have predicted the events of 2020. But in fact, someone did – SNS CEO Mark Anderson. Anderson, who has been publicly releasing his predictions for the year ahead since 2005, has a 95.1% graded accuracy rate.

On January 6 of this year, he published his Top Ten Predictions for 2020. What was on the list?

“Amazon,” he wrote, “emerges from the big tech scrum as the company that will just keep on growing forever, no matter what.” Check. “The process of disengagement from The Real China,” he wrote, “has its practical start this year.” Hello, Huawei. The ride-share business model, he predicted, would collapse. Wherefore art thou, Lime? The list goes on.

Join Strategic News Service on December 3 for our (virtual) 15th Annual Predictions Event, when Anderson will reveal his Top Ten calls for 2021 and answer your questions live about what to expect in the year ahead. (Free to SNS members, but registration required by all attendees.)
