Event details:

As institutions, companies or individuals we can often neglect to reach our true potential because we lack the tools or knowledge to adequately landscape the path ahead.

Often, we focus too heavily on results and then stagnate in the present, missing out on the abundance of opportunities that are dotted on our horizon.

By developing an agile, flexible and innovative approach to future planning, we are better able to forge forward, engage others and cultivate habits that could illuminate fresh, ground-breaking possibilities.

Join in on a conversation with Scott Smith, author of How to Future, about designing a more fulfilling tomorrow.

Scott Smith is founder and managing partner of Changeist, a futures research and consulting partnership established in 2007, based in the Netherlands. Having worked for more than 15 years in futures, Scott has consulted for a range of global institutions, including AXA, Comcast, UNICEF, The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, The Royal Society, Nesta, and the Dubai Future Foundation. Scott helped create and lead the Strategic Foresight program for Dubai Future Academy, and lectures in the Innovation & Future Thinking program at IED Barcelona. He was also recently named to the Executive Board of the Center for Futures Studies at the University of Dubai. He is the author of How to Future: Leading and Sense-making in an Age of Hyperchange.
