Strategic Planning Like a Futurist…

By August 3, 2020 News Stories

Team SurePact head off-site for a day!

The C-Suite are those responsible for choosing the direction of their organisations and are often asked to facilitate “visioning” meetings. In the land of startups, there is not always ‘a C-Suite to do this’. The futurist is normally the Founder and this can be a lonely road navigating the start of the journey until you have an employee number 1, then number 2 and so on. As you grow and bring on more team members, then the fun and the future is shared.

Now almost our 3rd year and our 3rd strategy day, a much larger team enjoyed the country setting of the Mercure Clear Mountain Resort, one member even ‘zooming’ in from interstate amid the COVID-19 restrictions.

Our facilitators were Advisory Board members, Helen Coyer and Graeme McKellar who led breakout groups to brainstorm solutions for the horizon ahead.

Joining in on the day was Michael O’Reilly, Founder and CEO of one of SurePact’s great partners, Next World Enterprises. Not only sharing his expertise and guidance with team members but also training the team in the virtual reality technology currently being piloted by 3 of SurePact’s enterprise clients. Strategy planning does not all have to be dull and boring….the team had fun as well!

Individual presentations and strategising how the company will evolve to meet challenges on the horizon formed the deep, foundational questions that were addressed along with new team shirts and team laughs.

Let’s not forget great food and a great venue, the Mercure Clear Mountain Lodge. Supporting local business during COVID-19 is now a clear objective for SurePact moving forward.

Achieving scale and growth all revolve around our people delivering for our clients. SurePact ensures a meeting rhythm and this focus enables the whole team to be part of the ‘SurePact Futurist Team’!
