“The training I received from TFSX transformed foresight from an academic exercise into a practical approach for design, strategy and planning. More personally, when I think about my training and earning the Certified Foresight Practitioner designation, I just smile a lot. It’s great to know I’m supported by a community of like-minded people who are thinking about—and working toward—a better future.”
“Absolutely cannot say enough about the quality of people and instruction I’ve encountered through the last year of courses with TFSX. I’m thrilled to have received my Certified Foresight Practitioner designation today and am looking forward to helping organization sand communities apply strategic foresight to foster resilience in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world.”
