The CEO Futurelab combines fresh insight with peer-level conversation to position your organisation ahead of critical shifts.

The world isn’t changing as fast as many believe. However leaders risk being too far removed from the changes happening all around them. As a result new competitors and disruptive strategies evolve in their blind spots.

The CEO Futurelab shifts this by providing Chief Executives with critical insight into the latest innovations – and more importantly, the new thinking behind the change. The format combines accelerated insight presentation with reflective peer group discussion.

The CEO Futurelab is run by Dave Wild, a Futurist who works with Executive Leadership Teams, Boards, Digital Leaders and high potential leadership groups. 

Dave has led workshops in New Zealand, Australia and the United States. Unique to his approach is a futurist focus on the new, which he applies when facilitating strategy sessions and coaching innovation workshops for clients such as The Warehouse, Kiwibank and New Zealand Trade & Enterprise.

The best thing about working with Dave is that if you have allowed yourself or your organisation to become even the tiniest bit complacent he quickly concentrates minds by ensuring we are looking forward to what might be, rather than allowing ourselves to be captured by the here and now or the past. Not once I have come away from a session with Dave without learning something new or having my preconceptions tested. There aren’t too many people that I have worked with over the years that I could say that about.

Dave challenged us to move our modes of thinking towards longer-term future possibilities and away from just the obvious and immediate. Dave’s impact on our organisation has been profound. We have aimed to develop a more free-thinking, creative approach to problem-solving and really try to continuously imagine what the future could look like and determine how Bluelab will evolve and thrive in that future state.
