Longboat Key, FL (PRWEB) February 04, 2015
This February and March, the Longboat Key Center for the Arts (LBKCA), a division of Ringling College of Art and Design, will debut FUTURESHIFT, a series of seminars led by renowned futurist, international keynote speaker, and best selling author David Houle. These workshops will not only allow participants to engage with David in an intimate and highly interactive setting, but also network with other executives and thinkers throughout the day as they explore the rapidly changing industries of marketing and healthcare.
FUTURESHIFT will expose participants to the current and emerging trends in each industry, highlighting both the disruptive forces of change and the need-to-know opportunities and challenges to shape business strategy over the next decade.
According to David, “At a time of deep and rapid transformational change with both great opportunity and great risk for businesses we must face the future. As a business owner or leader, can you afford not to attend? I am confident that you will come away with a number of ideas on how to lead and live in the next 5-10 years.”
The first seminar in the new series, Brand Shift: The Future of Brands and Marketing, will unveil the forces and mega-trends that will shape the global future of marketing and inform brand managers and strategists how to most effectively market their brand between now and 2020. During a time of unprecedented change in technology and content sharing, David’s insights prove invaluable to business leaders, entrepreneurs, and brand managers looking to stay relevant. Participants will leave with a solid foundation upon which to build their strategy for the next decade. For more information, go to http://www.ringling.edu/lbkca.
The second seminar, The New Health Age: The Future of Health Care and Medicine, will educate the individual about the ever-changing trends that are reshaping the health care landscape and deliver strategies to keeping personal and business health care costs down. Attendees will enjoy a comprehensive overview of the recent changes and future trends to consider while making crucial decisions about health care.
