Transformation for Libraries: Testimonials



Hear what our Cohort participants had to say.


“It's great to have a model that is normally applied to business be specifically applied to libraries. Our profession really needs a shakeup!”

- Florida Cohort Participant


“The Futures School provided a powerful, engaging way to deconstruct our biases and environmental variables to predict various future scenarios that affect our long-term vision and mission.”

- Doug Casey, Executive Director, Connecticut Commission for Educational Technology


“In a world buffeted by uncertainty, The Futures School Applied Foresight Accelerator provides participants hope for a better future by offering strategies to envision a multiverse of possible outcomes and a map to guide them towards the one that they want to realize.”

- Anonymous participant


“Every future is different and none of them are set in stone. Learning to plan for different future landscapes has destroyed a linear thought process... in the most exciting way. In a world where the future is limitless why not plan for them all?"  

- Mo Curley, Library Development Specialist, Martin County Library System


“I entered the Kedge futures training blindly hoping for a new experience to reinvigorate my motivation as a librarian and leader and left this experience with new energy and the skills to remove my blinders or narrow lenses into looking into my organization and community's future. Mahalo!”

- Lea Domingo, Branch Manager, Kaimuki Library, Hawaii State Public Library System


“Learning how to think about and consider the future opens up our opportunities to be creators of the future now. The three-day deep dive into foresight practice is just what you need to get started.”

- Stacey A. Aldrich, State Librarian, Hawaii State Public Library System
