For the past 17 years, Jonathan has worked with companies and governments to understand, articulate and prototype their futures.
In this process, he has learned that growth comes from more than competitive intelligence, customer insight and trends. It requires the linkage of product innovation and cultural capability. At the end of the day, teamwork drives execution.
Currently, he has two roles. The first is as a partner at Special Projects Agency, a human-centered product and service innovation consultancy that does extensive work on Future Frameworks, Product Planning and Prototyping for new service and product experiences.
He is also a Research Fellow at Frost and Sullivan, a major global market analyst firm. In this role, he advises the Chairman and clients about the implications of emerging technology across 13 industries and identify game changing services and businesses for the firm.
Following his Future Frameworks process, he has built, led and mentored cross disciplinary teams in the creation of digital, physical and service experiences, including: software, digital devices, businesses, magazines, films, and exhibits that bring the future to life for a broad range of global clients in education, healthcare, technology, mobility and retail.
Being both a strategist and practitioner brings a unique perspective. He is well versed in the best practices around foresight and strategy. He also knows what it takes to drive vision into successful products.
