Bob and Scott, both Bainbridge Island residents, will discuss the mindset it will take to thrive in a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. We’ll look at how we can individually and collectively be more prepared in the present.

We don’t have to be victims. We do have agency. We don’t have to be helpless. We can be resilient. This hopeful conversation will show you how to be more future-ready in practical, satisfying, and impactful ways.

This will be a fascinating discussion by two of Bainbridge Island’s most forward thinkers. The event is 6:30pm, January 23, 2024 at Eagle Harbor Book Co., 157 Winslow Way E. – Seating is limited.
