Christy Farnbauch

Innovation & Engagement Director, Ohio Arts Council |

We hired Dave Baldwin to serve as a thought leader and provacateur during the Creative Ohio Conference in December 2016. Dave was recommended to us as someone who is at the forefront of futuring and synthesis – someone who understands the future pulse of trends that will affect organizations and leaders. He was instrumental in helping us design a one-day event focused on future trends that will likely impact arts and culture in Ohio over the next few years.

Dave has the ability to ask rich, meaningful questions that you likely don’t know you need to answer. He gently nudges you to go deeper and think bigger. His collaborative spirit is manifested through his willingness to bring a partner(s) to the table to make the conversation richer. As a synthesist, he pulls trends, ideas, and data from a variety of sources, then blends in his wisdom and expertise, leaving you with rich, ‘just in time’ input for your project, organization, or leadership. Dave Baldwin will deliver the data and information necessary to take your work to the next level. The question is, will you have the courage to hit it out of the park?
