About My Business:


At 54, my passion is ANTICIPATION! …a continuous hunt for emerging weak signals of potentially significant change and opportunity. It’s about mining for breakthrough nuggets and insights to inform our actions and strategies in a world of accelerating change and uncertainty. I co-founded the Australian-headquartered Global Foresight Network strategy consultancy over ten years ago. Since then we have designed, repeatedly tested and renewed a powerful suite of Strategy Foresight customer research, strategy design and facilitation processes. Most recently, I have also been working with the Wellington-based Act On Insight strategy consultancy, founded by Steve Graham in late 2009. I work with a broad range of Australasian private and public sector customers. My engagement profile focuses on: o Identifying insights for customers via emerging future research, o Facilitation of senior leadership teams to challenge existing thinking patterns, and to explore and workshop future strategy choices and options. Between 1983 to 1997, I held a number of professional and senior management positions within the IBM Corporation in New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong. I am regular guest and keynote speaker at various customer and industry sector conferences, on future and strategy and future related subjects. My most recent research and guest speaker presentation subjects have been: o How firms use Web 2.0 and Social Media to lower costs, innovate and grow revenue, o Emerging Journeys: Future shapers of the road transport sector (2010-20), o Payment pathways: Future shapers of payment services, globally (2011-16).
