    #51 - Tessa Finlev | Dolby Laboratories | Running a Futures Council

    “To assume that running a Foresight or Future program is something that people can do on the side of their regular work would doom the whole thing directly to failure.”

    In this episode, we are joined by Dolby Laboratories' first-ever Foresight Strategist, and current founder of her own consultancy, Tessa Finlev. As Head of Foresight, she has launched an internal Futures Council, a company-wide resource that scans the horizon and connects the dots back to Dolby.

    In addition to a brief explanation of how Tessa "accidentally" became a futurist, and a short dive into the foresight activities at Dolby Laboratories, we address the core question of how to run a Futures Council. If you want to learn more about the characteristics, responsibilities, and goals of such a council, but also how time travelers come into play in that context, you shouldn’t miss this episode.
