#TheNewAbnormal podcast (which has over 200,000 downloads) focuses on understanding today and anticipating the future. Discussing these subjects via the stories and viewpoints of my guests has led to some fascinating conversations with activists, creatives, writers, philosophers, strategists, psychologists, lecturers, futurists, etc. Re: my bio, I'm a strategist, author and public speaker. My first book went to No1 in the business charts, whilst my second was shortlisted for the 'Business Book of the Year' Awards. ('The New Abnormal' is bought to you in partnership with The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies, a global leader in applying futures studies to solve strategic challenges, helping clients to be #FuturesReady.)
