Futurists: Analyzing Trends, Crystal Ball or Both?
June 1, 2017
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “The future is sooner and stranger than you think” (Reid Hoffman). What does it mean to be a Futurist at this time in our personal and business history? Today’s futurists (oxymoron?) take into account key trends including the impact of the digital world in our connected-everything-and-everywhere era, as well as technological advances that may propel us into the next century. Then what: a magic crystal ball? The experts speak. Susan LK Gorbet, Gorbet Design: “What you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it” (Goethe’s Faust). Jill Irvine, SAP: “And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it” (Roald Dahl). Kai Goerlich, SAP: “To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and call whatever you hit the target” (Ashleigh Brilliant). Join us for Futurists: Analyzing Trends, Crystal Ball or Both?
