I hope that you had an amazing Summer and found time to rest. I wanted to give you an update and view of what futurist keynote and research projects have been happening with me and my team.
Bookings are coming in thick and fast and I am excited to speak to so many new clients, including MINTO Group, Algonquin Power & Utilities Corporation, Kijiji, DISCOVER bank, 3Q, TBM Conference, York Region, Symcor, CPA Canada, Nevada Board of Professional Engineers & Land Surveyors, PwC, and more! My team and I have also been hired to undertaken specialist research and design projects for some significant global organizations. There will also be more TV and radio, writing for a new book project, and DARK FUTURES in Toronto, Vancouver and San Francisco.
Exciting times, and I have some other exciting updates to share with you.
I am so excited to finally share my new showreel with you.
It’s part showreel, part mini-documentary, and shares my manifesto:
Change is inevitable. We either choose to change, or change is going to happen to us
It features me on set in San Francisco for my CBC documentary ‘SMART DRUGS, speaking to 1800 delegates at United Way Global’s CLIC conference, on national TV in Canada, and speaking about companies needing to embrace cultural change, innovative ways of working, and technological transformation.
Please take a look, and please feel free to share with your friends, colleagues, and clients. Reach out to discuss your event or project with me.
My CBC documentary premiered on CBC this past May and is now being shown around the world.
In addition, I worked with Business Insider and AT&T on their ‘Competitive Edge’ series to talk about the future of trucking, transportation and connection through 5G.
Delivering Keynotes and Workshops
I am now being engaged by clients to deliver incredible tailored keynotes to their executives, senior leadership teams, and company conferences and lead workshops to get attendees primed on innovation and excited about the future of their companies.
These are great ways to deepen the engagement with your clients and double revenues per engagement.
Innovative Executives Workshop
This is a 60 to 90 minute workshop to engage all attendees and excite them about the potential for innovation in their organization. It’s a powerful format that works well for meetings of senior executives of 20 to 50 people in size.
Attendees are divided into groups to discuss the organizations Innovation & Future Vision, Organizational Excellence, and ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance).
They then discuss disruptive technologies, opportunities, challenges and actions needed to make change happen. The group then reconvenes to discuss and brainstorm solutions to these areas together.
A roadmap of next steps and innovation champions are identified and the output is used as a reference by the business.
Futures Ignition Workshop
The ‘Futures Ignition Workshop’ is a fast paced and energetic exercise that’s perfect for larger groups of 80 to 250 attendees.
Attendees are divided into groups to choose the top-3 disruptive influences that will impact your business and gain pace by 2030. For each of them real business opportunities are identified that can help inform the strategic direction of the organization. Then we get creative and have the groups write epic 2030 newspaper headlines on how your organization will be world-changing.
The groups then take to the stage to present what they discussed and share the headlines they imagined. This is incredible to get people thinking of new solutions for their future world and to create a group mindset around futures thinking.
Both workshops are transformative and can be customized and I’m happy to share pricing on these so reach out to discuss your needs with me.
I look forward to connecting with existing and new clients on their events and projects. I’m hopeful that the future will be amazing. Let me help you see that.
Have an amazing Fall 2019 and speak to you soon.
