RSA Keynote

The ability to look into the future, limited to divine vision or arcane powers in ancient times has evolved into a bona fide discipline used by Fortune 500 companies, governments and institutions around the world.

How on earth do they do it?

The evolution of the way we look at the future is a remarkable story of the various ways people try to manage risk and uncertainty. Is there something we can learn from the way businesses plan and apply it to our personal lives?

Building on interviews with business leaders, life coaches and behavioural economists, author and futurist Tamar Kasriel distils the essence of corporate planning, and suggests how it can be modified for personal gain.

Speaker: Tamar Kasriel, founder of the strategy consultancy Futureal and author of 'Futurescaping'.
