Our guest speaker on Thursday 23 August is Dr Morné Mostert, the Director of the Institute for Futures Research at Stellenbosch University.
FUTURES THINKING: the mind for the future
– Modalities of thinking
– Memories of the future
– The nature of thinking the future into existence.
“It seems that many executives continue to make decisions not only based on the past, but even in the interests of the past, or in its defence.
The intellectual agility to engage simultaneously with multiple possible futures is highly likely to increase as a prerequisite for effective management.”
Morné Mostert advises globally on Futures-based executive decision-making and cognitive development for senior leaders and has worked in Paris, London, Dubai and several African countries.
Subsequent to his PhD in the Management of Technology and Innovation, his areas of specialisation include Futures Thinking, Strategic Thinking, Systems Thinking and Creative Innovation.
He is the author of the influential book ‘Systemic Leadership Learning – Leadership Development in the Era of Complexity’, which has been the prescribed text for several international programmes on strategic leadership.
Note that the venue has strict access control and that you are required to RSVP to gain entry.
