A Message from the Founders
Thank you for your interest in The Futures School™ (TFS), a 3-day foresight certificate program like no other ever offered to the public.
The vision for this brand new approach to Strategic Foresight has been years in the making. It emerged from a realization that a gap exists between our increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world and the antiquated leadership and business development approaches we have depended on for so long.
As a former corporate futurist (Yvette) and a formally educated and trained futurist (Frank), we have experienced firsthand the frustration of attempting to develop robust strategy and breakthrough innovation while relying on traditional, quant-heavy, linear methods.
More and more leaders in for-profit, non-profit, and government sectors are realizing that to be successful in the 21st Century landscape of accelerating change, a new mindset and toolkit is required that can help us to create the future.
The Futures School™ addresses the fact that, up until now, the only option available for organizations wishing to strengthen their foresight and innovation efforts was to hire a costly consultant. These engagements require significant time investment and often result in a 3-ring binder that is quickly relegated to the already crowded office bookshelf.
Not only is this “hired gun” approach expensive, but it is disconnected from an organization’s culture and, therefore, never achieves long-term results. What is needed is a renewed investment in leadership, business, and entrepreneurial development with a globally-tested, hands-on approach to planning for and seizing the future. We believe The Futures School™ offers this opportunity.
Having shared TFS content to both corporate and non-profit clients in over 23 countries, we have honed a toolkit with proven results that no other foresight program can claim. Now, after training hundreds of future thinkers across the globe, we are thrilled to be able to offer TFS to you!
We hope that you’ll make the investment in your future by joining us for this unique program. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of a cohort of entrepreneurs, business leaders, and social innovators who are reframing the future for the 21st Century.
If you want to ask us more questions about the philosophy and approach of The Futures School™, we would be happy to connect via phone or email!
