Fearless Future Summit 2021

Exclusive for: Finance and HR Executives

Date & time: 24 February 2021 16:00

Location: Zoom

Bringing together finance and HR leaders, the Fearless Future Summit (when finance meets HR) follows in the footsteps of the legendary futurist Arthur C. Clarke. We look at how accurate his predictions in the 70s were while, during the Executive Breakouts, we’ll discuss which major shifts (bigger than Covid-19!) will rock the world in the next decade. Futurist & strategy guru Graeme Codrington will then run us through a series of possible futures that we haven’t even considered.

The last hour of the Summit will be a live, private virtual safari from the Greater Kruger National Park - one of the outlandish activities Clarke predicted half a century ago. Guided by bushveld expert Brent Leo-Smith from Painted Dog TV, you’ll be able to ask questions, engage and go on a unique virtual game drive in the comfort of your office or home. If you work from home, it’s a great opportunity to get some snacks and invite your family to join!
