What's my bio?

I’m a Futures Strategist.

I help Countries, Companies and Communities to unlock complex problems. 

I have worked in many domains. For example for the NHS and in South Africa, at national level. 

The status quo has a powerful magnetic field that is difficult to escape.

As a Generalist with 30 years experience, I bring new ways of thinking: to deliver system changes that are designed to work for all. 

My focus is on Creating Brighter Futures: in Health, in Learning, in Food and in Sustainable Cities
