Course Description

Businesses that once labeled foresight as prophecy now understand that it does not exist to predict the future – but rather helps shape and build that future. And it’s increasingly being recognized and hailed as the business skill to have: a recent article from the World Economic Forum* states that in order to tackle some of the world’s biggest issues, we need to change the way we make decisions and look at the future.  In this masterclass, you’ll learn how to build strategic marketing foresight at scale in your organisation so you can anticipate, shape and take control of your brand’s future.
