I am a strategic thinker with a passionate belief in helping people thrive in a changing world of risk and opportunity.

Over the 25 years of my career I have held a range of roles from senior positions in large corporates to small business ownership. The common thread throughout has been an ongoing pursuit of change and a quest to purposefully embrace the future. I continue to do this through membership of the World Future Society and as a graduate of the University of Houston’s Foresight Programme, through which I became a member of the Association of Professional Futurists. This unique blend of experience and training enables me to relate strategic foresight thinking to a diverse audience.

My overriding goal is to help people make sense of the changes around them, and through this uncover opportunities they can use to develop both as individuals and within their organisations.
