Wednesday September 8 2021 – from 19.00 – 21.00 – First hour is the seminar plus questions. Second hour is a digest of the issues raised by Professor Grayling and an opportunity for dialogue.
Please attend our induction event on Monday 2nd August at 8 pm on ZOOM. We will be considering scenarios to Rejoin EU.
In case you are not familiar with Scenario Planning, it can be summarised as “a history of the future”. We will consider a long time horizon of at least 10 years and then identify plausible events along that time line. These will be the PESTLE factors: political, economic, social, technological, legal and environmental events. From this we construct the most likely scenarios, bearing in mind that our politics are in flux, so disruptions must be examined. I will be leading you through the process. You can read a little on the process at Scenarios although our time horizons will be longer than the example given.
So, please give some thoughts as to the likely events coming up in the next decade.
The Facebook event invite is here for sharing.
The event is free but do support us to help cover our costs in increasing our ZOOM contract. We aim to run more events and need £480 to cover a yearly upgrade on ZOOM.
