More than a year ago, the world fundamentally changed, and the future, as we knew it, went out of view. We are now in a long period of profound transformation that has only just begun to show itself in terms of impact. As our world is getting ready to emerge from a global pause, the massive cracks and chasms in our current socio-economic and political systems are being revealed.
At the same time the uncertainty and unknown are opening doors to new possibilities unimaginable before the pandemic. As the strange becomes familiar and the familiar strange, a radical reimagining of business is ready to emerge. This session allows you to safely fall down the proverbial rabbit hole to explore a new land of wonder and possibilities.
This ‘taste’ offers a series of experiences, based on Alice in Wonderland, to get a sense of the rapidly changing landscapes and where exciting new possibilities exist.
This is a simple interdisciplinary creative process that offers new conversations, epiphanies, relationships and ways forward for radical change, with reimagined business leading the way. The three key takeaways from this unique experience facilitated by International speaker Hilary Van Welter are;
- Understanding new global trends
- What these trends mean to you and your business
- How to leverage opportunities through innovation as we emerge from a changed market
- To emerge from Wonderland with a new perspective of global opportunities for your business
- Gaining a global perspective of how the world economy has been disrupted and is creating opportunities for innovative businesses
- Hands on research into the changing dynamics of the world and the role business can play in this transformation
- The wisdom of the collective insights, innovation and a feeling of comradery and being in this sea of change together. New approaches that can be implemented immediately as well as cultivated for the future

For the past 15 years, Hilary has been designing and leading a range of projects to create innovative initiatives to help Ontario towns and residential communities develop a new blueprint on how to revitalize these communities in ways that meet 21st Century realities such as economic downturns, deteriorating mental health and climate change. This involves public and private outdoor space redesign, infrastructure reframing to include both physical function and social change, policy development and entrepreneurial endeavours.
