How to Recontextualize Your World View to Understand Information: Futurist David Houle (Video)

Even when the predictions of futurists are off, they can help investment professionals recontextualize the facts of the information landscape. Often this leads to new and varied insights about events that shape global politics, economics, finance, and technology. Here, leading futurist David Houle, author of Entering the Shift Age, discusses some of the techniques he shares with CEOs for seeing their world anew.

Houle was a part of the executive teams that launched MTV, Nickelodeon, and Headline News. He is an Emmy winner and an Academy Award nominee. In addition, Houle has spoken to or advised more than 2,000 CEOs on six continents, and has given several well-received TEDx talks.
