General FAQs

This page provides answers to some of the common questions we receive about TFSX and its programs. If you don’t find your question answered here, please contact our team for further assistance!


TFSX has been a vision of Kedge Principals Frank Spencer and Yvette Montero Salvatico for many years. They recognized that the world is dramatically changing, and knew that a futures thinking mindset must empower our strategy, innovation, design, technology, and social change.

In response, they created a practical and tangible learning platform so that every discipline and domain could be updated for the landscape of exponential complexity and emerging change. In addition to designing the content of Foundations in Natural Foresight® (the TFSX flagship program), Transformations of Natural Foresight®, and various advanced training programs, Frank and Yvette serve as lead instructors at The Futures School.

Certification is backed by the Global Foresight Advisory Council, an international group of visionaries, redefining their industries and guided by an innate futurist mindset.

The Global Foresight Advisory Council (GFAC) is the accrediting body for The Futures School Professional Foresight Certification, and supports its mission of ethically democratizing the future around the world. This international group of visionaries are redefining their industries, intrinsically guided by an innate futurist mindset. As multidisciplinary luminaries they are uniquely positioned to guide and expand this movement into the future with the right balance of practical experience and provocative thinking.
