    Dear Sir, Madam,

    My name is Hans Wieringa, I am part of a four person study group, enrolled at the Strathclyde University in Glasgow. Our group has gotten an assignment to make a future scenario’s for Turkmenistan. Part of this assignment is to have these iterations read by a person who is in a position to judge the content to be plausible or not. Scenario’s show „What could possibly happen in the future, from what we know now……”. The structured scenario planning technique is used from the book: „The Sixth Sense” by Kees van der Heijden and several co-authors like George Wright, who is our professor on this subject.

    Some scenario’s have a critical view on Turkmenistan, if these techniques are misunderstood this could perhaps be interpreted as insulting by persons from Turkmenistan. Therefore we are looking for somebody without emotional attachments to give his or her opinion about the plausibility. We expect the first version to be finished within 2 weeks.

    Would you please be so kind to let us know, if somebody from your organization is willing to help us to give his, or her opinion on the subject?
