As usual, Rainmaker’s monthly company get-together involved A LOT of post-its…
And this time there was some very memorable and incredibly competitive Lego building too.
We kicked off proceedings with all the exciting and challenging aspects of what 2019 has brought to us as Rainmakers, and how WE are accountable for our actions.
Marcin then introduced the day’s main activity, where we were tasked with identifying events in three key areas; business/ economy, society/ culture and data/ technology.
These events could be from the past, happening right now or something that might affect us in the future. Alongside these events relating to the topics, direct and indirect outcomes had to be thought of too.
There were some fantastic events to be discussed from each topic, such as the universal basic income concept, a rise in apprenticeships and even the invention of the washing machine…
Rainmakers then had to envision what the world would look like in 20 years’ time if some of the present and future events were to take place. Through the medium of postcards (well, post-its), drawings and, of course, Lego, dystopian worlds were created. From a world where work is no longer mandatory in order to live, to robots being used for crowd control, all futures were imagined. Many important questions were raised, including how Rainmaker would be able to adapt to and fit into these possible future worlds.
In summary, a really thought-provoking and inspiring day. Well done, all!
