In this provocative and illuminating presentation, Cecily demonstrates the models and processes by which you can become your very own futurist. Participants will leave not only understanding how change shapes markets and society, but how to manage long-term thinking and innovation in an environment that demands delivery today. The audience will learn
• How the brain, business, and government are wired for the "Permanent Present" and resist change
• The Four Forces of Change that are constant and predictable
• Three dramatic disruptions on the horizon that should be a part of every strategic conversation
• How to put a stake in a proprietary territory that is yours to invent and own
Finally, Cecily wraps it up with practical instructions for maintaining an innovation portfolio that plans on the far and future, while delivering on the near and now.
