This on demand audio
series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series.
Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Futurist, Edie Weiner. The original live interview was 9/7/12.
This episode is #31 of all time out of the top 50 shows on Solutionz Live!
Edie Weiner is president
of Weiner Edrich Brown, Inc., a leading futurist consultancy based in
New York City.
In FutureThink, two leading futurists reveal the breakthrough thinking
techniques they’ve developed to liberate the mind from its old
assumptions, and sensitize it to the earliest signals of change. Edie
Weiner and Arnold Brown show how to overcome both personal and
institutional biases, to see the big picture.
Learn how to
recognize when trends aren’t linear, and when tomorrow won’t be ‘just
like today’. The authors show how a football game can help clarify
priorities in attracting and retaining customers; how the history of
railroads can put the Internet into perspective; how the ‘Law of Large
Numbers’ helps one recognize the drivers behind such powerful forces as
deviancy and terrorism; and much more.
Edie Weiner has 30 years experience in issues analysis and
strategic planning, and was the youngest outside woman elected to the
Board of a major financial institution. She is a world-renowned
futurist and acknowledged as one of the most influential practitioners
of social, technological, political and economic intelligence gathering.
