Izzy Ahrbeck

Trend Analyst

Izzy is a Berlin-based expert in purpose-driven business with a global outlook – cultivated by years spent studying and working in eight different countries. After completing her master’s degree in Sustainable Business & Innovation, she joined TrendWatching and our sibling brand, Business of Purpose (BoP), where she is Head of Content & Development. 

As the host and producer of the Purpose Talks podcast she regularly interviews thought leaders at sustainability heavyweights like Tony’s Chocolonely and Outland Denim, and continues to cultivate a fast-growing, global community of purpose-driven business professionals through her work at BoP. Izzy has covered issues from LGBTQ+ brand allyship to inclusive hiring practises for the BoP newsletter, writes industry-specific reports for TrendWatching, and is an accomplished presenter, having given keynotes at various universities across Europe and North America. 

Having lived a past life as an award-winning film and music professional, Izzy now finds herself knee-deep at the intersection of business and social change. She has been interviewed for research projects and podcasts such as Purpose Projects and Creative on Purpose, and continues to track new avenues for companies to grow their triple bottom line.
