About me

I have worked in future forecasting, and insight for over a decade, leading multi-disciplinary, global futures, cultural trend, and brand strategy teams for Flamingo, WGSN and MTV in New York and London. I co-founded disruptive insight and strategy collective The Akin. I aim to empower the companies I work with, through cultural context and storytelling, to recognise their influence, and develop new solutions. I collaborate with leading global brands and organisations to develop their vision, and future proof strategy decisions by keeping pace with the people leading change. Alongside my corporate work, I love to teach and mentor emerging talent. I conceptualised the Global Trend Forecasting Curriculum for Parsons School of Design, in New York and am a visiting lecturer at the University of Westminster, UAL and Hyper Island in London. I have made keynote addresses and moderated industry panels at global events, including SXSW Interactive and I was recently named one of The Drum’s 50 best female speakers in the UK.
