Scenario planning training

With our scenario planning training we have learned hundreds of teachers, students and personnel in the Netherlands, France and Zwitserland how scenario planning can be used in practice. We teach them to observe trends and developments in society that are relevant to leisure and tourism. Thereby, we give an explanation of how the outcomes can be translated into environmental scenarios and how these scenarios can be converted into future-proof strategies for businesses and organisations. When working on scenarios and strategies, interaction and co-creation are central.

Trending topics

Every year we provide more than 100 presentations and training sessions organised by leading tourism organisations, consultancies, academic networks, media partners and universities in Europe and beyond with an emphasis on:

  • Future of tourism after COVID-19
