futurist in residence

improve the future focus of your organisation

I work with forward looking businesses to improve their future focus

The Futurist in Residence program is for organisations who understand the uncertainty we’re experiencing is not a blip. These organisations know there are significant opportunities for those who prepare and support their people over the long term to lead through this new reality.

In fact, research shows that organisations who integrate foresight practices effectively into their operations significantly outperform their peers. A longitudinal study conducted over seven years revealed future focused companies outperform the average with 33 percent more profit, and 200 percent more growth.

PROGRAM design

Designed as a 12+ month program of training, support and strategic interventions, the Futurist in Residence program is for organisations who understand meaningful and sustained change can’t be delivered in a one hour keynote or a half day workshop. It requires a level of trust, intimacy and mutual commitment that only a long term engagement can provide.

Each program is co-created with the client to address their specific needs in terms of scanning for future trends and strategic drivers, developing future forecasts and scenarios, and identifying and testing new strategic options. In involves working closely with leaders and decision makers to upskill their decision making and forecasting ability and then developing a structured annual cycle of events to build and maintain momentum into the future.
