Over the last ten years Woody has designed and facilitated scenario planning workshops across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Americas, for clients in the hospitality industry as well as organizations in other sectors, ranging from tourism and higher education to banking and NGOs. He is also a frequent keynote speaker at corporate events, strongly advocating for senior managers to use a scenario approach in order to “think differently about the future”.
Woody is the author of “Scenario Planning: A Field Guide to the Future”, published by Wiley, the largest business book publisher in the US. This practical handbook quickly became a bestselling reference work on scenario generation and was published in a number of foreign-language editions as well.
Here are a few additional highlights from his background:
“We may not be able to predict the future, but we should be able to anticipate possible routes that it might take. Development executives should formulate strategy that is sufficiently flexible to adapt to an evolving market place. Scenario planning is an essential tool in helping distill blind uncertainty into a framework of possible outcomes, and an informed opinion of what the future might hold. That is what Woody Wade’s course is all about."
Gisle Sarheim, Vice President Development, Asia Pacific, Hilton Grand Vacation
"Woody’s “Scenario Planning” offers an engaging and very informative take on envisioning possible situations and preparing for them. These perspectives, understanding how to identify trends and dealing with critical uncertainties, are very important in both the dynamic hospitality industry and the ever-changing global environment we operate in. "
- Andreas Mattmuller, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Middle East & Asia, Dubai
"Provocative and highly relevant"
- Tim Tobin, Former Vice President Global Learning and Leadership Development Marriott International
"...really gets you to see that you need to visualize different futures that you might find yourself operating in, not just a single projection of “the” future. Very eye-opening, and very enjoyable"
