SEEING THE FUTURE

 

We are living in an age of complexity where knowing what is going on in the present, and seeing the future, are both harder than ever.

 

In this presentation, Margaret Heffernan will explore how we often don’t see what’s in front of us, why we can’t see what’s coming — and how, nonetheless, we can still forge successful strategies for our organisations and our lives.


The event will be held over Zoom. Please ensure you have access to Zoom in advance of the event taking place. Zoom is available on all PCs, laptops, tablets and Apple or Android devices. The link to join the event will be emailed to registered members on the day of the event.
