Born out of the Pandemic, Minted on Zoom, Purposed for Real Life ... The World is in Front Of Us, Let's Make Sense of It.

Grey Swan Guild is a Global Network of Leaders, Thinkers, Builders, Change Agents, Experts, Sensemakers, Futurists, Innovators, Catalysts and forty types of Curious Others.

We believe the path ahead is better than the way behind, but only by working together can we find it. 


Embarked upon in March 2020 in the middle of a pandemic, Grey Swan Guild was created to find that way forward and make sense of the world's biggest challenges & next Grey Swans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our ongoing aim is to bring together our members, impriove our craft and surface, inspire, & invite:

  • evidence-based intelligence (Weathervanes & Global League of Sensemakers)

  • content perspectives (Publications, Radar Collection Reports, Articles & Podcasts)

  • learning and training forums (Craft Building Series and Masterclasses)  

  • one-of-a-kind events and experiences (Ateliers, Marquees and Premieres)

  • global network contributions and collaborations (Salons, Regatttas and Town Halls) 

  • venture-building societal, educational and commercial value (Cygnus Sprints, Futuregazing, Making Sense Playbook, Compendium & Compass and eight others)

 

,,, from those, and for those, who are committed to influence positive change across the globe. Guilds are back en vogue ... and we couldn't be happier.

Some of the reasons we think we do it differently (and maybe a bit better) is that we are:  Independent — Global — Deeper. than Superficial — Open + Experts — Positive + Future-Driven — Critical Thinking & Apolitical. Read up on our Guild's Manifesto.

“Perhaps the secret of living well is not in having all the answers but in

pursuing unanswerable questions in good company.”

Our Guild Lenses on the World:

Every week, we explore a themed, deep analysis and commentary of the week that was.

 

 The Great, The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Tapestry & The Grey Zone of Uncertainty..

In the spirit of the post-modern version of a guild, we introduce a full series of honing your minds, skills & talents.

 

  Audaces et sapientes fortuna iuvat — “fortune favours the bold and wise”,

”if you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up some place else.”

This is our campaign to make a strong futures & foresight practice just as important, credible and habitual as any  other practice in our current lives.

In our sped-up environment of memes, torrents, what’s trending, pundit observations, and fraudulent opinion, we asked, who is actually equipping our minds to find truths, and improve our own cognitive confidence and knowledge synthesis of the world ? We answered — let’s do our part.

The Guild is a beehive of activity happening every week. Blink and you may miss it.

 

Let's climb behind the curtain and explore the member profiles, ventures, intelligence, experiences, training, content and inner workings of the Guild that says impossible is nothing.

Each of us holds the key to how we integrate (or not) the learnings from this pandemic, that give us an unlimited number of outcomes. We are each leaders, at home, at work, and in the new future.

 

Change. People. Teams. Brands. Business. Policies. Futures. Countries.  

The only way to fully use the power of creativity is to enter with a beginner’s mind to unlearn, and then learn into the emergent and unknown future.

 

Learning. Unlearning. Relearning. Education. Skills. Collaboration. Behavior, Tech.

How do we mediate the tension of the opposites, between how things were and how they’re becoming? What symbols, imagery, fantasies, and shadows arise from our unconscious, to guide us through this liminal space between two worlds?

Transitions. Ambiguities. Cultures. Thresholds. Context. Dissonance. Resilience. Safety.

Our lives are forever affected by major events and Grey Swans, but how and in what way? And is it permanent or not, remains to be explored.

 

Home. Work. Play. Shop. Eat. Rest. Travel. Social. Escape.

The global pandemic has shifted the limelight to what may be  truly most important - family, local society, global society, the earth, humanity - in other words, love.

 

Relationships. Values. Passions. Respect. Empathy. Purpose. Humanities. Faith. 

Every week, we explore a themed, deep analysis and commentary of the week that was.
