SOIF2014 Flagship retreat

The 2014 SOIF Summer retreat saw 28 participants from 11 countries gather at Wilton Park to learn from experts in strategic foresight, using live and practical examples to show how it can be applied, and leaving the event ready to use this knowledge in their professional lives. Mixing with representatives from foreign and defence ministries, international institutions, think tanks and leading corporations, delegates shared perspectives and ways of thinking about the future, and built relationships in an atmosphere of openness and collaboration. Our themes were the role of narrative in developing and communicating futures, a Live challenge ‘Pakistan 2060’, and the impact of technology trends on security.
