About us

Our working method and our team

Your future is our core focus

At Futureconsult, your future is our core focus Futureconsult analyses, supports, mirrors, surprises, and makes connections. We are both future experts and process managers and have worked for governments, profit, and non-profit organisations for over 20 years.

Futureconsult helps organisations to anticipate and shape their own future. We focus on future research and future-proof strategy development. Presenting and creatively imagining the future helps break out of an organisation’s rigid thinking patterns. We broaden and deepen each organisation’s view of its future.

We help your organisation to prepare, develop and implement a future-oriented strategy. We also give masterclasses and workshops on the theory and practice of the future strategist.


Thinking together and doing together

Our projects are always realised in co-creation with our client. We work together with our clients on the future of their organisation. We stimulate, offer guidance, and support where necessary but, most importantly, we develop the ability of our client’s team and organisation to anticipate the future themselves.

Being honest about uncertainty

Uncertainty is always the starting point of any future strategy. We do not offer deterministic, numerical visions of the future; we offer insight into uncertainty and make it manageable.

Supported decisions

Our working methods allow internal and external stakeholders to be involved in shaping a future-oriented strategy.
