The Creative Futures Research Group invites you to attend a futures techniques workshop with futurist Andrew Curry.

This practical workshop includes an introduction to futures thinking and how it differs from/complements other types of thinking.

After an introduction to futures models, participants will have the opportunity to explore and apply these, working in small groups.

There will be time for reflection and questions at the end of the session.

Andrew Curry has worked as a futurist for twenty years, leading a wide range of projects across the commercial sector, the public sector, and the non-profit sector. He joined SOIF in 2019 from the Futures Practice of Kantar Consulting, where he was until 2018 managing editor of the company’s Future Perspectives thought leadership series, and co-hosted its podcast, The Future of Consumption.

He has worked with clients across the private, public and non-profit sectors. He was also lead author of the Henley Centre’s 2001 report for the Cabinet Office, “Understanding Best Practice in Strategic Futures.” He has published widely on futures subjects, including – with Anthony Hodgson – the first academic paper on the Three Horizons method. Andrew is a member of the Advisory Board of Lancaster University’s Institute of Social Futures and served for five years as Vice Chair of the Association of Professional Futurists.
