About Our 2006 Forum
Our Fifth Annual Forum, themed Daring to Explore – Creating Possibilities Together, continues to expand "thinking about thinking", raising the consciousness of better thinking in individuals and organizations. To that end, we have invited pioneering thinkers who "Dare to Explore." In addition, we are partnering with Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne to offer seven pre-conference workshops and one post-conference workshop. Our 2006 Forum aims to promote an environment where compelling ideas and insights will evolve from an exposure to new thoughts, and inthinking colleagues. (And these ideas and insights may lead you in untold exciting directions in your work and life after the Forum.) (to top)
Should You Attend?
Anyone interested in improving the effectiveness of individuals and organizations will gain a deeper appreciation of leadership from this Forum. Past attendees reflect a wide variation in backgrounds - which is always a highlight of our event - and as such we have confidence that our program will continue to be valuable to anyone interested in "better thinking about thinking." If you, however, would like to get a "running start" on InThinking and other associated ideas, please inquire with Bill Bellows (firstname.lastname@example.org) about attending an "Enterprise Thinking" workshop offered throughout the year at a variety of locations across the U.S. and U.K..
