Participants will be selected based both on the level of their professional responsibility, as well as on their mindset i.e. their openness and their willingness to share question and challenge, reflect and contribute. The format of the retreat is intentionally designed to foster dialogue and controversial exchanges, and to promote the sharing of personal believes and experience. At the end of the retreat, we will create our preferred future scenarios, jointly as well as individually. The future is not something that just happens to us – it is something we create! Therefore, we seek to discover it, together. In the heart of the beautiful Swiss Alps, Gerd will act as our guide to explore the future.

GERD LEONHARD



Futurist, visionary thinker, keynote speaker and author

ON BEING A FUTURIST



“I’ve been a Futurist for more than 15 years, with more than 1700 engagements for over 800 clients in 50+ countries, and an estimated global audience of 2 Million people. I focus on 5- to 10-year future scenarios, yet my work is becoming increasingly ‘nowist’ i.e. about the here-and-now, because “the future is already here – it’s just unevenly distributed” (as one of my favorite science fiction writers, William Gibson, likes to say).

MODERATION



The retreat will be moderated by Christian Petit.

Former head of corporate activities at Swisscom, Christian Petit is now Independent Board Member and Advisory. His mission? Advice leaders to prepare their business for the world that is coming.

MONTAGNE ALTERNATIVE: FIND YOUR NATURE

The retreat will take place in the unique hamlet of Commeire (Valais), in the heart of the Swiss Alps, where the peace and quiet, the authentic and beautiful surroundings will all lead to positive emotions and strengthening relationships.
