Curiosity and creativity are defining
leadership skills for cultivating success


Trend management foundation course

Our first module THINK introduces the futurist mindset and habits. In six lessons, we guide you on your path to learn how to think like a futurist while sharing essential skills to plot out your own journey. What you learn will be useful, whether you look to develop as an individual or as a business.

The WORK module takes you through the work of a futurist. We explore practical tools, methodologies and how a diverse range of futurists works. Why investing in tomorrow, today, is key to sustainable performance. How past and present knowledge can help us understand the future.

In PLAY, we bring the skills from module 1 + 2 into action. What are trends and how do you apply them? We explore foresight in action, and how our toolkit and system can be applied in your context. Hands-on learning for anyone who wants to be a practicing futurist.
