    Event description

    Callaghan Innovation is delighted to invite you to join an in-person Global Signals workshop in Christchurch.

    ‘Global Signals’ inform the future of food, agriculture and technology developments. They can come in the form of an event, product, practice, business model, or technology and are specific, small, or localised innovations that have the potential to grow. Signals do not predict the future but they can help your company prepare for multiple futures.

    This workshop is for AgriFoodTech companies that want to be competitive on the world stage.

    During this workshop, Melissa Clark-Reynolds will provide attendees with practical tools allowing them to:

    • identify global signals relevant for their industry
    • understand the link between strategy and foresight
    • identify unwanted futures and how they arise
    • present and choose alternate and compelling futures

    In conjunction with these workshops, Callaghan Innovation has also launched a new monthly newsletter, Global Signals, where we share signals relevant to the AgriFoodTech sector (learn more and subscribe here).
