• From Veterinarian to Foresight Consultant – a Strange Journey

    Location visible to members

    Agenda:

    Paul will describe his journey from a dairy practice veterinarian to his current role as a foresight consultant and venture philanthropist. A journey that seems strange on the surface but has an internal logic and has equipped him with a set of unique experiences and capabilities. A journey that wanders through the murky waters of agricultural and Labor party politics, returning to University at 39, and a short stint as the manager of an abattoir.

    The format will be conversational with participants asked to interrupt and pose questions along the way.

    • How a rational scientific and rational background and training, allied with a Masters Degree that was more philosophical and social in nature has broadened Paul’s skills.
    • · How Paul applies scenario planning and Wardley mapping to strategic thinking.
    • · Why Paul thinks organisational design for strategy will become increasingly important as opposed to Top down strategic thinking and analysis.

    Outcomes:
    Participating in this event will enable you to:

    • Think differently about the future and strategy.

    • Get a basic understanding of applying Wardley maps and scenarios to strategic thinking.
