Brian David Johnson to Deliver Keynote Address at 2016 Mackinac Policy Conference

BDJProgramming will kick off at the 2016 Mackinac Policy Conference with a keynote address from Brian David Johnson, futurist in residence for the Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University. As a former futurist in residence at Intel, Johnson is in the business of the future. He will motivate leaders to think about the state’s business future and imagine what tomorrow will look like in Michigan.

Johnson works with organizations to “futurecast” an actionable 10- to 15-year vision and what it will feel like to live in the future. Futurecasting uses ethnographic field studies, technology research, cultural history, trend data, global interviews and even science fiction to provide a pragmatic roadmap of the future.

Johnson has worked with governments, militaries, trade organizations, startups and multinational corporations to help envision their future and specify the steps needed to get there. Find out more about Johnson by watching his TEDx Talk.
