A strategic thinker with a passionate belief in helping people and organisations thrive in a changing world of risk and opportunity. Phil has a strong reputation for providing sharp insight into critical issues affecting organisations today. He helps clients understand the interaction of these trends to challenge existing thinking and build innovative approaches to navigating the road ahead.

A former senior executive, Phil has significant experience in strategic management and planning and a keen interest in the primary drivers of organisational change. He works with executives to help them understand these drivers, then develop resilient and sustainable strategies and plans. In his 25-year career, he has held a range of roles from senior positions in large corporate organisations to small business ownership. The common thread throughout has been an ongoing pursuit of change and a quest to embrace the future. The skills he brings to clients are underpinned by his training at the University of Houston’s Foresight Programme and continued membership of the Association of Professional Futurists.

This unique blend of experience and training enables Phil to relate strategic foresight thinking to diverse audiences, and he has supported many organisations with future-thinking and future scenario development.
