Silicon Halton Meetup #103 – Build Your Futurescope

May 8 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

When was the last time you spent time designing your dreams, goals and plans?

Join us on Tuesday, May 8/2017 for Build Your Futurescope –  a blueprint for tech companies, tech entrepreneurs, and tech professionals. Your brain is hardwired to imagine futures that are similar to your past and present. In this inspired 90 minute session, you’ll use brain science and design thinking to move beyond your hardwiring and imagine three different versions of your future self or business.

Whether you come for the benefit of your growing your business or your career trajectory, you’ll be challenged and energized. Your takeaways from this session will include:

  • Three different visions for your life in the next five years
  • Plans for prototyping your future visions
  • And you will lose: your fear of the paths not taken

Emily will be presenting this session at the upcoming ACRE (South African Creativity Conference) in October in 2018.  Check out the trailer video >
