Featuring speaker Cecily Sommers, Business Futurist, Author
This session, we will be kicking off our programming year by interviewing one of the country's most prominent business futurists, Cecily Sommers.
We now live in a time when navigating uncertainty, dealing with constant reorganization, and creating new ways of doing things is the norm.
Since change and turbulence are here to stay, Cecily will provide important historical context and also guide us through how HR can arrive at what is best for people, profit, and the planet.
About Cecily Sommers
There’s only one thing Cecily Sommers loves more than solving big, sticky innovation problems for some of the world’s great brands: getting others excited about doing it for themselves. A leading futurist and innovation expert, Cecily speaks, writes, and consults on emerging trends, markets, and technologies shaping business and society.
Big projects call for big talent and, for the projects she leads, Cecily composes an elite team of collaborators. The combination of expertise — graphic design, writing and editing, experience design, video — translates the strategy into beautiful communications, products, and learning experiences that bring traction to your forward action.
Cecily’s book, Think Like a Futurist, has been translated into several languages, was listed on the "Top 25: What Corporate America is Reading" by the Tribune Review, and nominated the “Most Significant Futures Work in Methods and Practice” by the Association of Professional Futurists.
Cecily has been named one of the “World’s Top Female Futurists,” a “Fast 50 Reader’s Favorite” by Fast Company, and a “Woman to Watch” by the Business Journal. She is also a frequent contributor to NPR's "All Things Considered" and other media outlets.
