On Friday 18th April 2008, twenty futurists and non-futurists from across Europe met at The Keyworth Centre at the London South Bank University for a series of presentations on aspects of the future.

David Birch of Consult Hyperion presented a session on the move to a cashless society, which is particularly important in the case of African and Asian development; Martin Rhisiart of Cardiff University Business School presented on the disappearance of the nation state; and Zarmina Penner of Future Management Group and Jo Causon of the Chartered Management Institute presented on the Future of Work and Management.

The day proved to be quite enjoyable. There was a good range of information to be absorbed, coupled with the opportunity to renew old acquaintances and to make new friends.
