Programs

The Futures School™ (TFS) offers learning and development fueled by foresight. TFS programs empower you to create the world you know is possible. 
Attending a TFS program not only gives you access to a network of co-conspirators, it also serves as the gateway to an ecosystem of development offerings to support you during your entire foresight journey.

 

Learn more below about the Applied Foresight Accelerator | Applied Foresight Activator programs.

 

Our TFS flagship offering, Applied Foresight Accelerator, is a three-day, immersive, hands-on, project-based program that exists to democratize foresight across disciplines and domains. The curriculum, which showcases our trademarked Natural Foresight® approach, has been delivered to hundreds of leaders in over 25 countries, and has been repeatedly hailed as one of the most exciting, thought-provoking and actionable programs available. 

In light of the global pandemic we are all experiencing, it is more evident than ever before that we must design programs that continue to facilitate meaningful connection and achieve practical outcomes despite geographic constraints. The Futures School believes we have an even greater opportunity for the global community to access the future through virtual programming.

Furthering our mission to democratize foresight, The Futures School is excited to announce its 2020 Foresight World Tour. For the first time ever, we will deliver our three-day flagship program virtually in various time zones across the globe. If you’ve always wanted to take part in The Futures School experience but couldn’t physically join us for one of our Accelerator programs, this limited-time opportunity is your chance.

We will host an APAC session in August, then a program targeting the EMEA region in September, following a USA/CANADA-focused session in October, and concluding the tour with a LATAM program in November.
