Future Focus: A look back at our highlights (and rockstars)
A look back at Future Focus: Our highlights (and rockstars!)
The future might be unwritten, but Future Focus helps you write yours.
Fresh ideas, new thinking, inspirational people combine to enable you to identify opportunities, trends and threats.
Future Focus’s mix of peer-to-peer Labs, and big-thinking, heavy-hitting, blue-sky events make a compelling argument for allowing yourself the time to take equally long hard looks at your business and at the horizon.
Here’s a look back at what we’ve been up to since Future Focus launched.
Future Focus Rockstars and Gamechangers
We’ve hosted 11 events which saw a combined 1,497 delegates in attendance.
We’ve welcomed Rockstars (like Paul Lindley, Holly Tucker and Patrick Grant) who’ve shared real-life examples of how they grew their businesses; how they embraced the pitfalls and have become renowned and hugely successful in their areas of business.
We’ve put on ‘gamechanger’ events like our most recent sell out, ‘Digital Mindset‘, which stretched the minds of businesses in the room to consider how they can embrace technology to scale their business.
Future Focus Labs: Cornwall, London and beyond.
Our Future Focus Labs bring together a small group of peers in a relaxed, creative workshop environment. Labs create a network of businesses that can learn from each other, as well as gently being steered by the facilitator, who’ll be an expert on the Lab topic. Our labs take place here, in Cornwall, or further afield on trips to London, Liverpool and beyond. Getting out of Cornwall is more than just a nice trip to make, it can really jolt a business out of its comfort zone!
Through Future Focus we’ve welcomed 151 delegates on 12 trips including the Congregation of Inspiration, Top Drawer, The Cornish Press Open Day and a trip to Brompton Bicycles. We’ve run 150 Lab sessions during the programme covering topics such as Continuous Software Delivery, Sustainable Packaging becoming a bee-friendly business and Scaling-Up.
The last two years have been exciting, invigorating and, as we close the door on 2019, we’re equally excited to welcome everything that 2020 has in store for Future Focus and the businesses we’ll be working with.
