Management Consultants Forum Dallas Fort Worth Chapter
     

   
December 17th, 2007

 


The Future Ain't What It Used To Be !

A demonstration of the principles
used to think about the future.

We all think about the future. What will happen at work? How will my family fare in the future? How will my community develop?

Schools normally do not teach ways to think about the future...but could they do it? Peter Bishop not only thinks so, he does it!

At this month's Forum, you will hear some simple principles for future think he employs at the University of Houston. Dr. Bishop will demonstrate those principles on topics you suggest. Finally, some volunteers will also use his principles to do some high powered thinking.

Mark your calendar and register right away for what promises to be a mind-expanding Forum!

Please note the new venue for our Management Consultant's Forum. We are now meeting at the Doubletree Hotel -
4099 Valley View Lane, Dallas (North I-635 frontage road west of Midway).

*** ONE EVENING ONLY! ***
