What will we cover?

Super Seminar Season 02 / Episode 01 looks into Futures & Foresight practices, an existentially vital form of sense-making. Translating trends, analytic research, ethnographic studies, desk analysis, these practices are in wide use amongst forward-thinking R&D and Innovation teams looking to anticipate and prepare for the contingencies of kinetic, complicated, conflicted and chaotic domains.

Join in a discussion with experienced practitioners as they help you understand how commercial organizations, public institutions, and governments use futures-oriented tools and practices to help prepare for change, manage the kinetics of challenging market dynamics; make sense of emerging trends; assess the implications of Social, Technological, Economic, Environmental, and Political dimensions and domains.

What are these tools for making sense of the future? How are they used to make the future sensical? How do you translate foresight into vision, inspiration and innovation? Who is able to help do this kind of future-facing speculation and what does it take to introduce the practice into your organization?

SuperSeminar S02E01 gives you the opportunity to not only learn from experienced practitioners, but engage in a discussion, create professional connections, and learn how you can develop the kinds of skills and the mindset to adopt unique insights into change.

What's The Format?
Come prepared for a meaningful, rich discussion. We believe discussion and conversation, in a world where we often find ourselves on the receiving end of a firehose of ideas, is dramatically undervalued.

SuperSeminar is not your usual online presentation platform. We've inverted the model.

No more long presentations followed by 0 minutes for deep discussion, engagement, and Q&A. In SuperSeminar, our presenters offer a tight 15-20 minute evocation, sharing brief insights on the topic from their experience. Then, much like a graduate seminar or salon, we #discuss the topic, offering attendees a unique opportunity to engage in a dialogue with the presenters and other attendees.
