Bruno Marion will join us to present the latest developments of his research, and also his book which has just been released: « Chaos, a User’s Guide: Solutions for Developing Ourselves, our Communities and Organizations in a Chaotic World». In his brilliant and provocative book, covering everything from personal relationships to energy supply to the way we teach our kids, Bruno looks beneath the surface of the seemingly nonsensical events of our lives and unveils hidden patterns based on Chaos Theory and fractal images. Through this innovative lens, he offers us a radical new strategy for our personal and professional lives, as well as for our institutions and organizations.
Bruno Marion will:
-           Show us why and how our world has become chaotic
-           Tell us how chaos theory can help us
-           Help us to smoothly evolve in this ne chaotic world, giving us several practical examples
Bruno Marion is not only asking the right questions, he gives us surprising answers and allows us to build our own future.In my books and conferences, I offer you new lenses and new tools in order to live and act in this radically transforming world. I share with you how to understand and live our personal and family lives, how to behave in our organizations, our associations, our companies, in this world overrun by an avalanche of changes.For 25 years now (much longer according to my parents…) I have been trying to understand the world around me. After the usual school-kid experiments, growing a bean seed and the like, I figured I would understand the world by becoming an engineer. Doing so, I did grow in understanding… but not enough to really figure out the world. I very clearly realized that it was no longer science that governed the world but economics and business. So I decided to go in for an MBA. That again did not take me any closer to finding answers to my fundamental questions of the world…It was then that it dawned on me that the answer was not here but maybe… on the other side of the world. I thought I needed to look at things from the other side of the planet and I was off on a world-tour looking for other cultures, in particular the Eastern. I travelled for a whole year, during a time when there was neither internet nor mobiles. I just had my backpack that contained under my shorts and t-shirts, a suit, two shirts and a pair of town shoes. Those travels exploring the meeting of the West and the East, led to my first book, Asie, Business et Bonnes Manières  which was to become the first french business guide for Asia.   This book was followed by others, the last to be published being Réussir avec les Asiatiques. It also led me to delivering many cross-cultural seminars over the years.My search continued…I then thought that we should, after all, return to our base: philosophy. So, like an enthusiastic novice discovering the main philosophic approaches, I began studying both western and eastern schools, from ancient times leading up to the Integral philosophy which, without doubt, is the approach most in resonance with my own vision and our present day world. And that’s how I beacame co-founder of Université Intégrale de Paris.Ever since, travelling around the world on a yearly basis and after several years of meditation, I have finally found out that the sciences, philosophies, spiritual disciplines, the East, the West, all converged and could very harmoniously give us new keys to understand this changing world. I wish to share with you what I discovered and understood along the way. I would like thus to show you that the world is getting always better as it suffers more and more and… with increasing speed! To a point where the world has become turbulent and chaotic. I would like to offer you some very simple tools that are based on one of the most advanced domains of science: the theories of chaos. And these tools will help you in analyzing, understanding and acting better in this turbulent, chaotic world..

Michel Saloff-Coste is an international integral and global futurist, researcher, business advisor and entrepreneur working with individuals, corporations and governments to foster “fast insights into alternative futures”. He is a respected analyst and keynote speaker and has addressed many of the most important companies in the world raising global future issues and creating awareness. As well as being a skilled facilitator, he delivers engaging, transformational and inspirational speeches and workshops. Operating professionally in Europe, United States and Asia, Michel has a broad experience in transition management, organizational culture, consumer behavior, business development and applied futures studies. He handles a broad range of topics within the realm of futures studies and innovation, as well as future paradigms in a range of specific sectors and industries. In the field of technology Michel explores news uses and its significance for society and modern living.  He likes to imagine the future with innovative and creative figures in a wide range of fields and industries and he knows how to translate those strategic insights into leading, sustainable organizations and ecosystems.  It was indeed Michel’s role as a consultant in management strategy and communication, which inspired him to carry out more fundamental research on alternative futures. He even went as far as directing a multidisciplinary workshop on societal change, from 1985 to 1987, at the Ministry of Research in France. Michel used his research in the writing of popular books and numerous papers on leadership, 21st century and the information society. Among his great achievements is the founding of the Club of Budapest in France, which is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to encouraging people to discuss complex global issues. In 1991 he joined the Bossard Consulting Group Capgemini as Senior consultant and research director. Michel then went on to create his own research and consultancy firm, MSC, between 1993 and 2005, dealing with future studies, management, strategy, communication and global governance. At the same time he taught vanguard management in HEC Paris since 1990. In 2011 he became head for R&D and International development of In Principo, an avant-garde Consulting firm, specialised in innovation and co-creation. In 2012 he was the founder of Design me a planet an NGO dedicated to researching solutions for global issues on a  planetary level and in the long term. In 2013 he became International Development Associate at Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies and in September 2014 Executive Director at Future Innovation Institute in Lille Catholic University.
He never stopped dedicating some of his free time to his talent as a contemporary artist. Michel has explored a wide variety of mediums: painting, photography, video and music. His work has been exhibited and collected by many private galleries and individuals, but also leading art institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, Centre George Pompidou.
The main focus of Michel Saloff-Coste’s research and the subject matter of many of his books is on the paradigm shift within the information society that he himself defines as a 'Creation-Communication Society'. He defines the evolution of civilization in four waves: namely 'hunting & gathering', 'agriculture & breeding,' 'industry & commerce,' and 'creation & communication'. Saloff-Coste further developed his framework with Carine Dartiguepeyrou and together they outlined ten long-term visions of the future called 'horizons'. Their collaborative work was published in a co-authored book, “Les Horizons du Futur”.
These days Michel’s passions include the research of:


  • The major tendencies that transform development of our civilization at a planetary level
.
  • The changes needed in countries and companies in terms of culture, management, system and structure.
