Description

Welcome to the exploding universe of books focused on creating positive exponential shifts (Green Swans).

We hold monthly events to introduce you to brilliant authors and conversations about the powerful ways we can transform our world.

Join us if you are curious about the future of capitalism, work in business and finance, or plan to do so.

Wednesday, 30 June 5:00 – 6:30pm GMT.

You are invited to join us in conversation with Bill Sharpe to discuss his book Three Horizons: The Patterning of Hope.

Three Horizons is a simple and intuitive framework for thinking about the future. The framework, which Volans regularly uses with clients, explains how people often manage to disagree so violently about their visions of the future and how to achieve them - and it offers a practical way to begin constructive conversations about the future at home, in organisations and in society at large.

Register to hear more about developing 'future consciousness' and to ask the author about element you want to explore more deeply.

You can buy Three Horizons here.
