There are many different predictions and scenarios. The problem is that we do not know enough about the future. The challenge is to learn how to use this science and to find out what is relevant or not.
During the lectures the following questions will be answered:
• What do futurists 'know' about the future of society, economy, technology, nature and politics?
• What does the future look like, seen from different angles?
• What does the future tell us about the present?
• The corporate future?
• Think about the future and develop a vision and define the necessary and widely supported actions you and your co-workers have to take.
Our goal was to create a Belvedere Collective from all the different brand managers and other key brand stakeholders around the globe during a 3 days Belvedere Immersion in Warsaw. The tactics Jaco used to bring the individuals together from the beginning were highly efficient and very engaging for all. Literally in a few hours the base for establishing the Collective was created. The inspiration of Jaco his personal dream has been superb which resulted in highly motivated participants during the team workshop activities. Jaco has a real talent to read the culture of the company and the atmosphere between the participants, which are absolutely key succeeding with the set goals related to the Belvedere Immersion. Besides leaving the group inspired and succeeded to establish the Belvedere Collective, Jaco has made 38 new friends, which showcase how good he is to connect with each individual. Still nowadays when I visit different countries, brand managers participated asks about him and tells how inspired they have been about his dream and capabilities to present and lead a group towards their goals. Obviously I highly recommend Jaco to each profit and non-profit organisation in order to inspire many more people and children. Na zdrowie Jaco!
