Summit for the Future Report 2005
Average reader rating: 0  
by Club of Amsterdam 00 The Future

Sharing the Future
“There is a slightly odd notion in business today that things are moving so fast that strategy becomes an obsolete idea. That all you need is to be flexible or adaptable. Or as the current vocabulary puts it, ‘agile.’ This is a mistake. You cannot substitute agility for strategy. If you do not develop a strategy of your own, you become a part of someone else’s strategy. You, in fact, become reactive to external circumstances. The absence of strategy is fine, if you don’t care where you’re going.” - Alvin Toffler, the world’s most reputable and influential futurist.

Our first Summit for the Future was visited by more than 100 delegates from Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Israel, Latvia, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands, UK and the USA.

The Opening Event was attended by 230 persons and in January we had more than 40.000 visitors on our website.

22 Partners: Bayer CropScience, Infolution, HES Amsterdam School of Business, École Polytechnique, Paris, the Medical Faculty, University Basel, Media Academie, Hilversum and the Corvinus University of Budapest, musik.woche with musik.lounge, KnowledgeBoard, The Association for International Broadcasting, Fuel Cell Markets, H2World, Promedia, Medical Knowledge Institute, The World Future Society, Health Management Forum, Shaping Tomorrow, European Health Telematics Association, World Summit Award, World Futures Studies Federation, Gemeente Amsterdam Economische Zaken and the Embassy of Switzerland in The Hague.

The general feedback was very positive - the participants especially appreciated the interdisciplinary aspect as well as the global presence at the Summit. The outstanding quality of the 40 speakers and stream leaders ensured inspiring lectures and workshops. Some key speakers were: Glen Hiemstra, leading futurist from USA, Simon Jones, director of the former M.I.T. Lab Europe, Frank-Jürgen Richter, former director of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Tom Lambert, leading consultant, Gerd Eisenbeiss, leading energy advisor to the German government as well as to the EU - to name just a few.

We would like to thank all participants, knowledge stream leaders, students of HES Amsterdam Schhol of Business, partners, everybody who made this Summit for the Future an inspiring and energising event!
