Joe Tankersley

Joe is a writer, futurist, and advocate for better tomorrows. At various times he has worked as a screenwriter, filmmaker, educator, and bartender. During his 20-year career at Walt Disney Imagineering, he wrote and produced theme park attractions for Disney Theme parks and created WDI’s strategic foresight group.

These days he uses those same skills to help organizations “imagineer their best tomorrows.” His clients range from Fortune 100 companies to community groups and nonprofits. Joe served on the board of the Association of Professional Futurists for six years and currently leads the foresight group for the nonprofit Whale Center. His book, “Reimagining Our Tomorrows; Making Sure your future doesn’t SUCK! was described by Toronto’s own futurist and science fiction author Karl Schroeder as “the book we need right now.”

Joe lives in Central Florida where, if current trends continue, his grandchildren will inherit beach front property.
