VISUALIZING STRATEGIES, RESEARCH, AND REPORTS
CONFERENCE, WARGAME, AND EVENT VISUALIZATIONS
Engaging “pre-reads” and graphics are created for leader conferences, events, and wargames. These create both a “scene-setter” and unifying experience for attendees, while conveying key event themes through a mechanism more likely to hit with effect. After the event, they can also provide a better means for distilling and sharing out the event findings, AARs, and lessons learned, especially to those unable to attend.
LEADERSHIP AND TRAINING EVENTS
Structured as half, 1, or 2 day events, Useful Fiction’s in-person or online teaching blends world class experts sharing key principles and lessons learned through a mix of lecture and conversations, along with exercises that allow hands-on experiences. We have provided such classes to organizations that range from the NATO military alliance to Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs training program for US government executives.
MENTORING AND “WRITER IN RESIDENCE” PROGRAMS
A team of experienced editors and writers will provide on-call writing and editorial support to an organization’s reports and publications, ensuring they are crafted at a professional level and achieve intended effect on their target audiences.
CONSULTING AND SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTISE
Our principals are considered among the world’s best at strategic forecasting and technology futures, including being described in The Wall Street Journal as the “premier” at the task. They are regularly engaged to help organizations develop fresh perspectives on emergent trends that can guide investment, policy, and growth. Renowned as public speakers, they have provided keynote lectures and briefings to audiences that range from heads of state and Fortune 100 CEO business retreats to 20,000-person tech industry conventions. They have spoken at venues as diverse as the White House and Nobel Institute to the Sydney Opera House and the deck of an aircraft carrier. Their extensive networks and experience as event organizers also mean that they are able to develop projects that engage a wide range of fellow subject matter experts, from award-winning science fiction writers to generals and admirals.
