Ever wish you could peek 20 years into the future?
That you knew what was coming down the tracks for your business or community?
Here we go!
Camp Lakotah, Wisconsin
August 19 - August 22, 2019
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: Yes, it's camp. You sleep in a bunk house. You use camp showers and toilets. You have access to canoes, a private lake, archery, fresh air, and acres of trees. You eat at picnic tables and sit around bonfires. There will be bugs. And frogs. And possibly a raccoon. And you have a chef who feeds you delicious, seasonal food, and staff and volunteers who will concoct a signature cocktail each night, make sure you're cared for, and are hell-bent on making sure you have a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Ready? Sign up.
