Strategist. Futurist. humanist.

helping people make better big decisions

The climate of uncertainty you currently find yourself in is not new, though it may feel particularly acute right now.

For anyone trying to make big decisions or plan for their long-term future, uncertainty often feels like the enemy. Yet uncertainty also creates incredible opportunity.

Even before I started working in scenario planning and strategy, I already had half a lifetime of experience in navigating uncertainty. Growing up in a family of fishermen who made their living on the open ocean, I learned about the need to constantly scan the environment, pre-think and prepare for different scenarios, and respond decisively to changing conditions.

Today, I help organisations and leaders like you navigate the uncharted waters we find ourselves in. If you’re hearing things around you like “we didn’t see that coming,” “we are always so reactionary,” “we need a new strategy,” “we can’t get this wrong,” or “why can’t someone just make a decision,” then I encourage you to get in touch.

Together, we’ll step back from the overwhelm, get a better sense of what’s really going on, and plot a course forward.

Here’s a few ways we can get started:
