Overview

 

I am Adam,  a Swedish/Australian futurist and a member of the Association of Professional Futurists and the World Futures Studies Society.

 

I work at the intersection of strategic foresight and entrepreneurship with a focus on broad, long and deep innovation. Broad in the sense that it goes across whole systems and beyond organisations, disciplines and sectors; long in that it is future focused and sustainable in the long term; deep as it questions assumptions and embraces the unknown.

 

Beyond consulting and presenting as a futurist  I am co-founder of the Perth-based enkel collective (a multi-disciplinary collective, which explores new narratives and possibilities for Western Australia) and currently involved in four  ventures:

 

  • New Economy Network Australia (NENA) WA Hub steering committee – A national initiative working to transform Australia's economic system.

  • Superhero Spaces - an online non-profit, which aims to highlight and champion a global network of creative spaces.

  • enkel U - A school for changemakers in Perth, Western Australia.

  • enkel Naval Store - A 1400m2 living lab for the new economy and a space to prototype the future in Fremantle.

 

You will find me in or around anything where the new and purposeful intersect.

 

My purpose

 

I am passionate about activating ideas, people and spaces to create innovation and learning networks that transcend organisations, sectors and countries.

 

Skills and abilities

 

I am an innovator and a social entrepreneur with a broad skill set and interests, who has a gift for connecting people and ideas.
