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.

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.
