BBC 3D in 2023 – “Thinking Like A Futurist” w/ Leslie Schneider
This Friday we will launch the first of an ongoing conversation on “How to Think Like a Futurist.”
Leslie Schneider, founder of OfficeXpats, will share snippets from two futurists, Bob Johansen, with “Institute For The Future” (iftf.org) and local author of Office Shock: Creating Better Futures for Working and Living (amazon.com/Office-Shock-Creating-Futures-Working/dp/), and Jane McGonigal, game designer and author of Imaginable: How to See the Future Coming and Feel Ready for Anything – Even Things That Seem Impossible Today (amazon.com/Imaginable-Future-Coming-Anything_Even-Impossible/dp/).
This discussion is a good follow-up to last week’s BBC presentation by Elizabeth Doll: Braver Angels (Braver Angels Washington), re-empowering civil conversation and public trust is good for business!
Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise! Arr.
So invite your friends and associates to join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
