The Team

The Future Agenda programme was undertaken by an international team working together to design, deliver and synthesise the fifty workshops, numerous online discussions and additional dialogues with organisations around the world.

The team was led by Dr Tim Jones who originally conceived the programme, ran the majority of the workshops and undertook much of the synthesis. Tim has supported a wide range of government and corporate organisations in identifying future growth platforms over the past decade and is a regular speaker at international conferences on this topic.

Caroline Dewing led the Future Agenda programme within Vodafone, organised many of the workshops and took the lead role in the collation of all insights.

Supporting Tim and Caroline was a host of forward looking people who gave their time and ideas to the programme. These included:

Don Abraham at the Futures Company in New York

Jacqui Allen at the British Council in Washington DC

Elif Arslan at Vodafone Turkey in Istanbul

The fifty workshops that formed the core of the programme dialogue were undertaken by the team around the world. The locations of these workshops included Auckland, Bangalore, Barcelona, Berlin, Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, Brussels, Chicago, Christchurch, Eindhoven, Istanbul, Johannesburg, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Melbourne, Mumbai, New Delhi, New York, Oxford, Rome, Shanghai, Singapore, Tallinn, Washington DC and Wellington.

The ultimate success of the Future Agenda programme is dependent on the enthusiastic support and participation of people who want to help shape the future, who have generously shared their expertise and been prepared to challenge the status quo. We would like to thank everyone who has contributed either online, though workshops, by participating in discussions or commenting on the outputs. We hope we have provided an accurate reflection of the views expressed and take full responsibility for any mistakes.
