Successful engagements have been delivered in diverse sectors including financial services, energy, healthcare, and infrastructure.
I provide consultancy to a wide range of organisations as a trusted advisor, thought leader, and cultural transformation specialist.
I am a frequent keynote speaker at international conferences on the topic of foresight, strategy and innovation. I have given keynotes at events around the world in locations including London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Moscow, Shenzhen, Fiji, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland.
In my work I don’t have a formal title, but if pressed I’d call myself a Serendipity Architect who brings together ideas, people and innovation in a way that creates successful results.
I often ask clients what challenges they will face in the next twenty years and how will they deal with this?
I believe that you need to care about the people on the fringes of your market that tinker with your product, and that scanning the periphery of your sector – and adjacent sectors – benefits your organisation.
The complexity that surrounds foresight, strategy and innovation often means that organisations find it difficult to comprehend the implications. I help organisations to learn from divergent and disparate information to address complex strategic issues. In commercial organisations this often leads to the creation of high margin products and services.
