What alumni say ...

Going through the Foresight Sandbox was a wonderful, eye-opening experience

Luke Shabro, Deputy Director, U.S. Army Mad Scientist Initiative

Going through the Foresight Sandbox was a wonderful, eye-opening experience. Even as an experienced futurist I learned a lot from the course due to its structure, interactive design, and diverse participation and facilitator group. This experience equipped me with tools for forecasting that I can employ across the ecosystem of our organization, not just in my particular section.

I would really recommend this to all levels

Alpa Bhattacharyya, Ph.D. Associate Director, Strategic Innovation, Bristol Meyer Squibb

This was my introduction to future scenario planning and the training conducted by Amy was just the right balance of helping me better understand the fundamentals but also how to apply it to a specific challenge without making it overwhelming for a beginner. I would really recommend this to all levels.

The Foresight Sandbox workshop was of huge value to me as the head of strategy for a start-up business

Martin Elliot, Chair of iSAW Foundation

The Foresight Sandbox workshop was of huge value to me as the head of strategy for a start-up business: it gave me access to a systematic approach and set of tools that will allow me to better navigate my business through uncertainty and leverage the upside of the trends that are most beneficial. Any leader who has a role to drive growth and change will benefit greatly from this two-day session.
