Prior to moving into the futures field Guy spent over a decade working in the online and internet sector across a variety of enterprises from small scale start-ups, through professional service firms to international investment banks.
Guy then initially trained as a strategic scenario practitioner under the tuition of Kees van der Heijden (ex-Global Business Network / Shell and author of “The Art of the Strategic Conversation“) and Dr. George Burt at the Centre for Scenario Planning and Future Studies at the University of Strathclyde Business School, Glasgow, Scotland.
Since 2009 Guy has worked as an independent futures and strategic foresight consultant using a range of processes and techniques to help clients – via proposition, project and strategy development – to identify, assess and engage with future change.
Guy previously studied International Studies at the University of Leeds and has particular interests in futures research in relation to disasters studies and disaster risk reduction and the Arctic.
