International Future Forum’s Second Enlightenment Seminar
Tuesday 5th June 2018 – Edinburgh

Sian will be a guest speaker at one of the International Future Forum’s Second Enlightenment seminars, previously known as Ramsay Garden seminars, in Edinburgh.  ‘Our seminar series has become a highly regarded feature of Edinburgh’s public intellectual life since their launch in 1999 and the invitation to visiting speakers is simply to ‘make us think’ about an issue of importance and to introduce a fresh perspective into the debate.’

“Can I just formally thank you for all of your energy and expertise over the last two days.  The workshops ran brilliantly and you have managed to bring out a lot of good thinking across our managers in terms of community networking.  The workshop has achieved its aim and with you on board it made a real difference. Our Transformation lead also wanted me to pass on her thanks, she was very pleased with the overall impact of the conference and the workshops all received good feedback. Thanks again and hope to be able to work with you again in the near future”  Ian Ware Head of Practice, Interserve plc
