Nottingham University Ingenuity Event – Predicting the Future of Technology and business?

Home / Exeid News / Nottingham University Ingenuity Event – Predicting the Future of Technology and business?

Future Gazing & Future Shaping – 30th Sept 2014

Nobody can predict the future. However, by studying the latest technology developments, social trends, and data on resource availability, it is possible to predict a range of possible futures. In turn this can allow individuals and organizations to anticipate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, and to take actions to shape the future they most desire. Chris BarnattIn this breakfast event, futurist Christopher Barnatt returns to explore the application of future studies as a business tool. In particular he will focus on the business impact of increasing resource scarcity, rising localization, re-distributed manufacturing, and associated new technologies. Many large organizations are now starting to open up their planning horizons, and are increasingly working with futurists when determining their strategies. Smaller businesses should similarly no longer ignore the longer-term, and Chris will show how a future studies perspective can be integrated into the strategy of an organization of any size. The programme: 07:45 – 08:10… Registration, breakfast and networking 08:10 – 08:15… Welcome and introductions 08:10 – 09:00… Where’s the future taking us and can we influence it – Chris Barnatt’s views will inspire and potentially inflame! 09:00 – 09:10… Questions & Answers 09:10 – 09:30… Business and University enquiries – Shop Window 09:30…                  Networking… for those that want to stay on The Shop Window – your chance to take the floor Every Ingenuity Knowledge Exchange breakfast offers both business owners and people from within the University the chance to make a brief presentation to the room about something they are looking for help with. From the University? If you have a business-facing project or want to work with local small and medium-sized businesses as part of your research, this is your opportunity to make contact with business owners who are already interested in what happens at the University and who may be interested in participating with your initiative. From business? Sorry, but this isn’t time for a standard “60 second pitch” – feedback tells us that our businesses want something different from Ingenuity. But it is your opportunity to do some research of your own, ask for volunteers for new product or service trials, to ask if anyone has any recommendations for difficult-to-find suppliers, or simply share some news that the audience might not find out about otherwise.
