Public Events

These standard presentations can be tailored for your audience’s needs.

Keynotes and Webinars

You are invited to join us for these open keynote presentations or conversational webinars where we will discuss, unpack and discover how to apply many of the futures thinking / strategic foresight models that are available for us. We are not victims of the future. We can co-create our shared futures, and these keynotes and webinars will show you how.

While the topics may sound intimidating, all of the material is designed to be accessible without any additional studies. Examples are provided to demonstrate how to apply these to different levels of complexity such as to your own career, your family, your organisation or even to city or country levels.

Taboo or Not Taboo

Developing Values for the Future

20 May 2021

Conversations that would have been taboo a few years ago are now common dinner chats. At the same time we are becoming more aware of the insensitivities of our language, actions and even pronoun use.

Its not technology or geo-politics or media that causes the most stress as we move into the future. Our discomfort comes from unaligned values and the rapid and often incomprehensible change in values that creates the most problems and concerns.

Reinvention for Business Survival

Not only a personal skill set

27 May 2021

Irrelevant. Outdated. Old fashioned. These are judgments made not only about too many professionals’ experience but also about companies, associations, products and services. The global pandemic has taught us that we have to be able to reinvent ourselves and our organisations to have any hope of success beyond survival.

In a fast paced, VUCA world, we need to be on constant guard that what we are offering the marketplace is resilient, robust, anti-fragile, innovative and essentially relevant. This cannot be fixed by adding a new product line or taking a new course. We have to have a mindset of constant growth and development, constant learning, and lose our attachment to old ways of defining ourselves and our organisations.

Prophylactic Philosophy

Preparing for the Future

24 June 2021

Do you know those people who have a huge mid-life crisis. They are the ones who make major life changes when they hit 40 or 50 or 60. They buy a new sport car, grow their hair long, find a new partner. A little cynical perhaps, but when we are suddenly confronted with a birthday that ends in a zero, or a health crisis, or a global lock down order, we often over react.

We say that we had a huge ‘wake-up call’. What we really mean is that we are forced to stop frantically pursuing the goals we often acquired without thinking and we emerge from a spiritual slumber. But if our systems are not accustomed to large doses of philosophical reflection, then we tend to over react and make extreme decisions that we then later regret.

Futures Literacy

The Professional Development Skill we are Missing

1 July 2021

For professionals and leaders who need to constantly develop their professional skills, Futures Literacy is an essential but often neglected field. Within the field of Futures Thinking or Strategic Foresight, this skill is the introduction to a powerful world of insight, models and approaches that can help you to steer your organisation through crises to success.


If we do not understand the alphabet or the language of a country or a profession, then we cannot communicate clearly in that space. We are unable to read the signs, heed the warnings, see the opportunities. We are illiterate and vulnerable.​

Webinar Reinvention Charlotte Kemp

Reinvention - Webinar

25 March 2021

Irrelevant. Inexperienced. Outdated. Old fashioned. These are judgments made about too many professionals’ experience and the reason why so many previously suitable candidates can no longer get good positions.

In a fast paced, VUCA world, we need to be on constant guard that our skills, experience and qualifications are relevant to the current and future requirements of our career choices. We need to reinvent both ourselves and our organisations.

 

Conscious Futurist Charlotte Kemp Keynote Futures

Conscious Futurist - Keynote

18 March 2021

It is no longer enough to be a conscious leader. As we approach the third decade of the 21st Century, completely unprepared for the global disruption we have experienced, we need to be more than just invested leaders. We need to be more than responsible consumers. We need to become conscious futurists.

We have the opportunity to shape our lives, businesses and world, into something that is better than it was. Being a Conscious Futurist means you grasp the challenge to go beyond the obvious to design a better future.

We can move up a spiral from levels of Survival, through Responsible and Invested to being Conscious Futurist and more.

Webinar Signs and Signals Futures Webinar

Learn to read the signs, signals and symbols of the future

18 February 2021

It is possible to learn to read signs that indicate how the future will unfold, and to what extent we can influence it. Futures Literacy gives us a language, an alphabet and others symbols to interpret what we are seeing, and then to determine how to respond.

From fads and trends, to scenario planning, flags indicating which path we are likely to be on, and more, we can learn to read, interpret and discuss the future.

Webinar Calm mind Vuca world Charlotte Kemp

Developing a calm mind in a VUCA world

Volatile. Uncertain. Complex. Ambiguous. Never before has this description applied as appropriately to the world as it does today.

How do we as leaders and citizens, maintain a calm, logical, resourceful mindset in the midst of what often seems to be a chaotic world. How do we set goals, makes plans, formulate strategy in a chaotic, unpredictable world?
