What is you and your organization’s relationship with the future? Does it evoke fear and apprehension, or excitement and a sense of opportunity?

Understand the disruptive paradigm shift coming out of Silicon Valley and Technology, including AI, robots, fintech, life sciences, virtual reality, autonomous vehicles, and the collaborative economy. Look at the revolutions in society, geo-politics and economics.
Explore these themes together with a dialogistic approach, harnessing collective intelligence for greatest insight. This is a collective journey where you will learn from all the other participants taking place around the world.
Look at your relationship with the future: how do you fit in? Clarify your purpose and how you can connect with a bigger vision to impact the world
When the world is changing faster and faster, don’t let the future just happen to you. Instead of ignoring the inevitable effects on our lives and organizations, we can choose to face the future with clarity, vision and purpose by making important investments allowing us to do so.
Our unique approach integrates best practices and insights from futurism, trend forecasting, disruptive innovation, investing , co-creation, design thinking, and the world’s wisdom traditions.
