bringing fresh perspectives to old and new issues. They work predominantly in small and medium-sized organizations and corporations as well as for governments, academic institutions, and not-for-profits.

Our members and clients are mostly professionals, with above average intelligence. They are usually highly educated and seek to constantly learn more more in pursuit of their work and interests. Reading and thinking is a significant part of their work and they tend to be information sponges, systems thinkers and good commmunicators. In pursuit of their objectives they tend to use technology to research and learn.

  • a holistic, crowd-sourced systems approach 
  • multi-sectorial, multi-national and multi-dimensional inquiry

What they say

"You have created a unique and very impressive scanning and foresight platform"
James Mason, AllState Insurance United States

"The Shaping Tomorrow workshop was incredibly valuable in demonstrating the potential use of the integrated foresight, strategy and change tools - I am impressed with how widely the tools can be applied to our daily work and how the systematic approach ensures that we cover off areas we perhaps wouldn't think of including in our analysis. I really like its systematic approach and the fact that it can be used in diverse areas such as policy formulation, forecasting, provision of advice to senior levels of government etc."
Raana Asgar - DAFF (Australia)

"Shaping Tomorrow provided the tools and expertise to quickly assimilate market information, identify key drivers and create multiple scenarios. We were able to identify many options to help steer the company and test our strategic plans."
Russell Trueman, Strategic Planning Manager - British Gypsum (United Kingdom)

Our values
We are the world's lowest cost provider of highly effective, strategic intelligence and ideas, backed up by a passion for service excellence, rapid delivery and commitment to highly successful outcomes that help our clients exceed the expectations of their stakeholders. We endeavor to be kind, giving, caring, sharing and honest, think tank at all times.

We are:

  • Associative thinkers: joining or connecting ideas and facts from different experiences
  • Collaborators: bringing together people with a diversity of knowledge to solve problems
  • Communicators: explaining ideas and concepts effectively through multiple means including, writing, speaking, gestures, pictures, diagrams and stories
  • Knowledgeable: possessing expertise that is both broad and deep and skilled in independent learning
  • Persistent: continuing to be a perpetual start-up and pioneer of new ways to deliver strategic foresight and change management for the benefit of all

We pride ourselves in caring for all of our members, clients, partners and suppliers, engage in open and honest dialog and act responsibly and practically at all times. 

Ownership of solving problems begins and ends with our clients and not with us. Clients proactively solve problems with our guidance rather than just reactively addressing symptoms and learning is passed from our facilitators to participants in repeatable forms. Clients determine the positive and negative future implications of their solutions and modify their decisions to be sustainable in the medium to long-term thus reducing future waste, cost and time and extending income opportunities and brand reputation.
