Leaders visioning the world of work in 2020

We recently hosted a 2020Vision event for a cleint organisation and the energy and the outcomes were fabulous! There was a real buzz all day as these high potential leaders relished in the invitation of their CEO to set their imagination free and envisage the world of work in 2020, and what that might mean for their business. Here are a few images- I hope it might stimulate some more 2020Vision events. Please get in touch if you might be intersted.See More

2020Vision - A cafe event for business leaders about organsiations in the year 2020

Posted on September 29, 2009 at 6:28am 1 Comment

SWAN recently hosted a leaders event called 2020Vision. The intent was to create an 'oasis' from the detail and fear of current times, and raise the eyes (and the game) towards the future.............2020. Even though its only 10 years away it was clear to all who gathered that a quantum shift will have occurred by then. The insights were signficant and you can see some of the slides of one of our icon speakers if you go to our twitter page see SwanConsulting. We are shaping up some resoutces… Continue

Hi Alexandra,

It looks like we will be in London on Friday 6th after all. Do you have any time on that day to meet? I am going to catch up with Christine from World Cafe UK as well, during the day. You are welcome to join us or we could arrange to meet later, after work, if that suits you better. Breakfast works for me too!

I will probably be back in London the following week as well if Friday doesn't fit.

Warm wishes,
Janine

Hi again Alexandra,

I have taken a quick look at your site - the 2020 event looks fabulous and I look forward to hearing more on the forum on how it went. I am starting out as a consultant and facilitator, based in NZ, although I am currently in the UK and will be until September next year. I would greatly appreciate any opportunities to gather up more facilitation hours whilst I am here - if you need any enthusiastic assistance on upcoming projects please get in touch as I would be more than happy to help! I have a little experience of World Cafe and am a trained facilitator of Open Space, Whole Person Process and Cross-Cultural Conflict Resolution, all part of the Genuine Contact Program (TM). I am off to the States next year to complete the GC Trainer the Trainer. I have a background in leadership development and adventure based learning in the outdoors.

Look forward to hearing from you sometime,
Janine

Hi Alexandra, I was reading your post in Cafe Uk looking for a UK based visual recorder....perhaps you could try Vanessa Randle of Thinking Visually?

Thinking Visually.

I met with her sometime ago when I first found out about the GR courses she facilitates here in the UK. She was very generous with her time and I have since started integrating visual recording into my coaching work. She is a lovely woman and very talented.

All the best,
Janine
