THE CENTRE FOR THE FUTURE
As a philosopher-activist my aim is to inspire and encourage meaningful transitions for greater numbers of people across all levels of society. By suggesting radically disruptive ideas and models, challenging practices that no longer benefit a majority of humanity, and designing better social architectures for organising, governing and leading, I want to help create a civilisation that is more empathic, equitable, and enduring. One that emphasizes what it really means to be human.
Chief Steward, The Incubator
I am the founder and CEO of OSQO. Former market maker at Accenture, a Partner at IBM, co-creator of MiVote & Horizon State start-ups, and a career change agent. As a business architect I understand how to design and implement business models that keep companies competitive and relevant. My intent is to help liberate organisations from redundant constructs, understand their world for what it is and curate their place in it.
Chief Steward, The Wayfinder
I enable wiser decision-making in society by facilitating the development of a generative, second order consciousness within domains that have high potential for systemic influence. I apply behavioural modelling in a variety of areas related to second order change, including second order leadership development, culture shaping, strategic and systemic thinking, and whole-system transformation.
Chief Steward, The Academy
I explore and design transformational journeys with those that understand the need to go beyond the unsustainable limits of a fast fading mechanistic society. As a futures architect I engage organisations, cities and regions in conversations about the emerging networked and collaborative age, how they might create value in this future and the architecture of transition.
Domain Leader, MiVote
I am a serial disruptor and strategic artist with a twenty-year global history of starting, building, steering and selling fast growth businesses. Having experienced industry consolidation and technological disruption as a senior executive and business owner in the media, entertainment and travel markets across Asia, the United States and Europe, my appreciation of and comfort with change and strategic flexibility was inevitable.
Domain Leader, Foresight Beyond Frontiers
With an International career commencing in the field of Preventive Medicine in a developing country with new found wealth and progressing through to advising multinational organisations in both the private and public sectors on strategic futures; change management has always been at the very core of what I do best. As a natural ‘systems thinker’ I have a well proven ability to ‘see’ through organisational dysfunction and then, having diagnosed the system with uncanny accuracy, I co-create innovative, disruptive, mutually beneficial intervention strategies that provide equitable, abundant outcomes for people, communities, enterprises and the planet.
Domain Leader, China Engagement
I explore ways of understanding human potential, and how individuals and teams can achieve better outcomes for business. I have a nous for raising unconscious bias and empathy, with a strong focus on the Asia Pacific region. China has been my second-base where I undertook studies in Kunming, Shanghai and Guangzhou and worked within renewable energy, training and education sectors. Since returning to Australia in 2009, I have advised Australian companies on cultural and business-related practices within the changing China landscape.
Domain Leader, Operation PeaceQuest & Carbon Bad Bank
I am a solutions-focused Canadian journalist and policy analyst based in Berlin, Germany. I focus on reporting on and contributing to the development of initiatives for managing global existential risks, including climate destabilisation, biodiversity collapse, and war. My specific contributions include novel instruments in the domains of climate finance and biodiversity conservation finance, and initiatives for reducing the likelihood of wars. I am the the originator of two key initiatives in which Centre for the Future is engaged: the Carbon Bad Bank Initiative and Repurpose the Military Initiative.
