Future Intelligence Workshop

We were excited to partner with Kedge and The Futures School to offer a Futures Intelligence workshop as an add-on to the Synapse Summit experience! Attendees learned trends in culture, technology, governance, economies, sustainability, and beyond. But, more importantly, they gained a set of tools that bridged the gap between our fascination with trends and the real work of foresight. Attendees walked away with a reframed perspective, immediately applicable to professional and personal growth, and The Futures School certificate of completion.
