World-renowned futurist and thought leader, Professor Sohail Inayatullah, is presenting in New Zealand for the first time. He will be here at the invitation of Rutherford Business Institute for a two-day workshop in Auckland on September 24 and 25.
The Rutherford Business Institute says in a media release that Professor Inayatullah will be running a two-day advanced Futures Thinking and Business Strategy Development workshop aimed at business and industry leaders. The aim of the workshop is to provide attendees with the tools and strategies necessary to not only manage disruption, but to be the disrupter.
Commenting on his forthcoming visit, Professor Inayatullah said: “We can either be overwhelmed by the waves of change, ride the waves, or become the wave maker. I look forward to working with New Zealand organisations to explore creating alternative and preferred futures.”
Professor Inayatullah’s workshop is a first for New Zealand, as he is in very high demand internationally. He has worked closely with organisations and governments for more than 30 years as a futurist, helping them to create the narratives they need to shape their preferred future.
He is the UNESCO Chair in Future Studies, a Professor at the Graduate Institute of Futures Studies at Tamkang University and teaches at the University of Melbourne and the University of the Sunshine Coast. Full workshop details and registration: www.rutherfordbusiness.nz/futures-thinking/
