SAMI Events

SAMI Consulting runs a number of occasional events.

Our next event is:

Another in our series of webinars, in early autumn, and we are planning a number of training sessions in the autumn and early next year.

Here are some recent events to give a flavour of what we do:

"The future of Europe – navigating the complexity".
In this insightful seminar, held on 5th July 2017, Francesca Lagerberg, explained how Grant Thornton uses three horizons and scenario planning to help their clients and themselves plan for uncertainty in Europe leading up to 2030.
The slides and recording of the event are available here.

In our series of webinars with Unlocking Foresight and Atkins, the most recent was on The Future of Work in Health, was held on 17 May 2017. Slides are now available to download on the Foresight Hub and, more interestingly, we have a recording on YouTube, here.

We are partnering with Unlocking Foresight and Atkins on a series of monthly webinars. The first was on 26th April 2017, on “The Future of Cities”. It took a broad look at the role of community and cities, prompted by Ban-ki Moon’s “Our struggle for global sustainability will be won or lost in cities” and the recent Scientific American article (Varun Sivaram, May 2017) pointing out that 10 of the 20 most polluted cities are in India. The second on May 17th will be on the Future of Work in Health, and the  3rd on 5th July on Scenarios for Europe. For more details, and to sign up, click here.

Thursday 6 April 2017, Global Futures and Foresight and SAMI Consulting held an invitation-only thought leadership event on the Future of Work in Health, 2pm to 5pm; at the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, 39a Bartholomew Close, London EC1A 7JN. The format built on the combination of informed participants, a briefing from experts, and peer group working as developed for “Blowing the Cobwebs off your Minds”. The event was for 40 people and considered the views of three different types of worker – scientists, health professionals and risk managers. The outputs were captured and will be presented in blogs and other publications.

16 December 2016 – Corporate Governance and Risk Management failures and their prevention
On 16 December the CRSA (Control and Risk Self-Assessment) Forum held a short day event titled ‘Diagnosing Governance and Risk Management then Future Proofing Them’. It was an interactive facilitated discussion diagnosing why current governance and risk management systems have seemed ineffective in many cases and what could be done in different scenarios of the future. The morning looked at why corporate governance and risk management have failed to prevent frauds and financial crises and what needs to change to make them effective. The afternoon covered how the world might be different and concluded by discussing the implications for decisions today. SAMI CEO Gill Ringland was one of the facilitators.
A summary of the day's discussion has been prepared here, ‘Diagnosing Governance and Risk Management then Future Proofing Them’

In furtherance of our understanding of the 4th Industrial Revolution, SAMI with Ian Harris of Y/Zen Group ran a workshop on Artificial Intelligence and machine learning at the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists (WCIT) on 5th December.
