    What is The Futures School?

    In Strategic Foresight, practitioners study how to proactively plan and create the future. Traditionally, it is a highly theoretical discipline. The Futures School™ takes the theory and makes it actionable.

    In a 3-day certificate program, The Futures School attendees learn a practical Strategic Foresight framework called Natural Foresight®. They leave with a tangible and replicable process that enables them to act strategically today for a successful tomorrow.

    Why The Futures School?

    You are facing an increasingly VUCA environment – volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous – full of exponential change. How do you navigate a world like that? More importantly, how do you stay on top?

    Interactive Learning
    Go beyond endless lectures and get a hands-on introduction to the Natural Foresight® process.

    Practical Toolkit
    Other foresight training programs are overly academic and focus on theory. Our framework is proven to work in the real world, which means you can start implementing it as soon as you get back to the office.

    Diverse Cohort
    Each session is made up of professionals from various backgrounds, so you gain insights from influential people outside your industry.

    Alumni Network
    As a TFS-certified foresight practitioner, you will join the Alumni Network and become part of a diverse, experienced, dynamic network of like-minded people who are invested in your success. Maintain the connections you made during your TFS session, but also forge new bonds with the entire network. Click here to find out more about our alumni network.

    What type of person should attend?

    Are you someone who is naturally curious, connects the dots, and is open minded to new ways of thinking? Do you understand the value of tapping into the future in order to seize undiscovered innovations and opportunities? Are you looking to add another toolkit to your personal or professional repertoire? Do you have some knowledge of Strategic Foresight and Futures Thinking and want to further your skillset? Are you struggling to implement foresight into your organization or strategic planning?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are exactly who should attend The Futures School™. Whether you are a corporate foresight practitioner, a change agent, a trend hunter, an innovative entrepreneur, a student, a chemist, a technologist, a CEO, or a strategist… The Futures School™ is for you.
