Founder and CEO, Innovation House SciFutures (USA)
Now is the time to seize the future! Science fiction of yesterday predicted the reality of today – touchscreen, drones, virtual reality… the list goes on. So, who is to say that fiction cannot become reality and that the craziest of ideas cannot be turned into unrealistically good business moves?
The man who does it on a daily basis is Ari Popper, a visionary whose innovation house SciFutures works with Fortune 500 companies and writes visions of the future to help clients see things from a different perspective and produce innovative solutions to their problems.
Popper diverts this power of storytelling into a deeper understanding of technological capabilities. His team has helped Pepsi imagine a plastic-free world. They created a profitable future of car-sharing for Ford. And they even envisioned a new concept of mobile transactions with Visa. All of these out-of-this-world ideas clearly state: if you looked at things from a different angle, you might see a brilliant innovation. So you better future-proof your business.
Ari Popper: Intentional Sci-Fi Can Transform the World!
Humans have always been natural storytellers – and the power of narration stems from emotion. Popper claims we live in an age of exponential capabilities. In order to provide exponential growth, the key is to expand your mind. In his talk Intentional Sci-Fi Can Transform the World! he will teach you how to create and shape forward-looking ideas to reshape the reality as we know it – because the future is just a fictional step away.
