Title: Positioning yourself for the Future
Speaker: Neelay Bhatt
Session 1: As the Covid-19 pandemic has shown us, the only thing we can predict is change. As agencies in New Hampshire and around New England plan for the next decade, this session will help them look at trends, plan for future shifts and build an agency culture that can innovate and thrive in increasingly unpredictable times.
Session 2: It will share insights for how to build an agency culture and mindset that can innovate and thrive in a changing landscape as parks and recreation agencies look to changes to their communities, policies, park and facility designs, financial sustainability, marketing and communications, partnerships, program delivery and innovation in general.
Given the unpredictable nature of current events, this session provides insights and predicts trends for agencies to plan for.
No one can accurately predict what the future will look like but, if the global and local happenings are an indicator, it is that the present and the future is more unpredictable than ever before. Predicting trends and future occurrences that agencies have to plan for and how to build a culture that can embrace change and uncertainty will be the two key elements to ensure that NRPA’s 3 Pillars can be sustained and perpetuated in agencies of all sizes.
- 1. List key trends that may occur in the coming decade
- 2. Identify ways in which this can be applied to their agency and to parks and recreation overall
- 3. Build an agency culture and a personal mindset that welcomes innovation and grows amidst change
