About The Futureproofing Forums

Let’s be honest, cut the BS and carnival barking. Innovation & change can be really really tough. Everywhere you turn there is resistance, hostility, ambivalence, silos and status quo thinking.

– Innovation & change can be lonely.

– Innovation & change is happening at breakthrough speed.

– Innovation & change is an interdisciplinary & collaborative

– Innovation needs some smart shortcuts, and a peer network.

That’s the thought anyway. Let’s stop the pretension, innovation theatre and performance art, and get real, having executive peers learn from each other in an intimate forum.

Here’s the Format:

– 90 minutes, interactive discussion on general futureproofing and specific innovation++ topics

– 8-12 executive leaders working in spheres of innovation, change, futures and leadership

– we’ll pose five questions to guide the discussion and we’ll see where it goes

– Futureproofing Forum  alumni get access to various Futureproofing ; Next events, intelligence efforts, ventures and special year-end showcase event
