Plan for Your Future, Not Your Past
You wouldn't drive your car across the country in reverse looking through your rearview mirror. But that’s what we do with our plans - we base them on the past instead of the future.
You need a better way to anticipate your future. You need Futurist Camp.
Camp Wandwega, Elkhorn WI
August 13 - August 16, 2018
Futurist Camp is a six month, all-access program that teaches you:
- the tools that professional futurists use to figure out the future
- how to develop a futurist’s mindset, so you can spot opportunities and threats that others miss
- how Fortune 500 companies, the military, the energy sector and entire countries use foresight to innovate and adapt
- how to apply foresight to your project or organization (a powerful alternative to “strategic plans”)
- how to facilitate a long-range foresight project with a broad stakeholder group
- why people are afraid of the future and how to make people comfortable using foresight
Futurist Camp is not lecture-based or theoretical. It’s applied, hands-on, learn-by-doing training. Your instructors include Fortune 500 leaders, professional futurists, subject matter experts, military personnel, and Rebecca Ryan.
Small print: Camp Wandawega is where Futurist Camp started. You sleep in a bunk house. You use camp showers and toilets. You have access to canoes, a private lake, archery, hatchets, tree houses and teepees. You eat at picnic tables and sit around bonfires. There will be bugs. And frogs. You have a chef who feeds you delicious, seasonal food, plus a signature cocktail each night.
