There's No such Thing as a Normal Future

Wednesday 9 December 2015

The last couple of months have been hectic to say the least, with a myriad of client engagements across an array of industry sectors. And as you can see from the list below one thing is clear: EVERYONE wants to understand what is shaping their future and how they might be able to influence that more to their liking. And that is one of the reason I love what I do - being involved in facilitating a deliberate search for understanding. Many thanks to all of the clients both past and ongoing for providing that opportunity

This recent hectic period has seen me working with City of Greater Dandenong and the SEBN group exploring the future of manufacturing; Western Water assessing changes in consumer needs and water demands; Knox City Council's central planning team looking at planning effectiveness, changing demographics and resource use for achieving the Council Vision; Investor's Edge considering the way changing job profiles and employment will influence housing investment opportunities around Australia; I've delved into the way digital technologies will influence three key areas of society: 'Cash, Cars and Coitus' on behalf of AIMIA; worked with Dandenong Neighbourhood House in organisational strategy; guided three separate groups developing emergency housing platforms for the world (watch this space); and delivered a key note to the Property Council of Australia about emerging issues in city design and the demand for more sustainable design parameters in various constructions.

And that's not the full list! Always varied, always interesting and always about rhe future and what can be done to shape it or adapt to it. How lucky I am to be involved!  Bring on next year...
