Reimagining Our Future in 6 Key Growth Areas

Jared Weiner, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for Future Hunters, opened last Monday's Business Information & Media Summit (BIMS) with a bit of a magic trick. He gave the audience a sequence of seemingly open-ended questions—pick a number between 1 and 10; pick a animal—and then nailed the final answer visually for about 80% of the people.


Retraining, Learning and Adapting Will Be Vital, says BIMS Keynote

The future will increasingly be about new methods of individualized learning. It will be important to learn how to learn. It will be important to be adaptive. These are the skills that will be most useful—and most prized by employers—in the workplace of tomorrow. Work will be far more about intelligence (the ability to apply novel thinking to never-before-seen challenges) and less about smarts (the ability to memorize, retain and apply information)."  —Jared Weiner, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Future Hunters, a leading futurist consulting firm
