    The team guiding people and organisations

    towards creating a future with a difference.

    Elaine Olsen

    Director Leadership and Innovation

    By night, a trekker and armchair detective.

    I am a dreamer of ideas, a maker of change. Originally from Malaysia, Australia has been my home for the last thirty years. I am passionate about inspiring young people, teams and organisations to step into their authentic selves. I help them discover their potential to change the world through the lens of systems thinking, design thinking and meta change frameworks like Theory U.

    Adam Jorlen

    Futurist and Innovation Strategist

    By night, a gig go-er and planetary knowmad.

    I am a Swedish/Australian futurist. I work at the intersection of strategic foresight and entrepreneurship with a focus on broad, long and deep innovation. Broad in the sense that it goes across whole systems and beyond organisations, disciplines and sectors; long in that it is future focused and sustainable in the long term; deep as it questions assumptions and embraces the unknown.

    Andrew Thomson

    Systemic Designer

    By night, a bedroom music producer and nappy changer.

    I am a Systems Designer, originally hailing from the UK. I am passionate about guiding cross-sector stakeholders to envisage and develop a future that is circular, not linear; that is generative not extractive. With twenty years international experience and with deep beliefs about rethinking the economy, I work to surface new insights, develop creative and holistic solutions. Collaborative emergence is my approach.

    Rod Griffiths

    Systems Elder

    By night, an eco-community thought leader and global grandparent​

    I engage with teams, individuals and consultants to tease out insights about how Tasks and Things interact in subtle as well as obvious ways - often with surprising or unintended consequences for the present and future. Hosting emergent conversation is at the core, creating increased clarity and a sense of possibility that can embraced as a way of being, not just doing.

    I draw on a long consultancy career based on systems thinking, learning with clients across a wonderfully wide range of sectors.
