This is my latest long form blog post including:
"When I tell people that I am a futurist the reactions fall into two broad categories.
- “That is so cool” – to which my response is generally “can you go and tell my 15 yr old because he in no way thinks I am cool”.
- What the ****** is a futurist. That happened to me yesterday when I was sitting in the audience for the launch of a new Horizon Scanning tool that we are working on with the Department of Premier and Cabinet here in Victoria. The group in the seats behind me were saying “what is a futurist, there is supposed to be one here?” My general response to that reaction is : we help people think differently about the future so they can shape their strategy.
I like to show people the Futurist Meme…….”
