Andrew Curry is Director of Futures at SOIF, where he leads SOIF’s Advisory practice, advises on futures methods and techniques, and contributes as faculty to SOIF’s learning and training.

He has been a futurist for more than 20 years, working with clients on a wide range of projects across the public sector, the non-profit sector, and the private sector, and he continues to do this for SOIF. He has also published widely on futures.

He was the lead author of the Henley Centre’s 2001 report for the Cabinet Office, Understanding Best Practice in Strategic Futures. He wrote – with Anthony Hodgson – the first academic paper on the Three Horizons method and a paper on comparative scenarios methods, with Wendy Schultz. He blogs on futures at a personal blog, ‘The Next Wave‘, and also runs a regular futures-oriented newsletter at Substack, Just Two Things.

He can be reached via SOIF.

Here are some of Andrew’s resources for you to download. A report he wrote on the 21st Century Business – still his most downloaded Futures Company report on ResearchGate.

We talked about “future anxiety”. Since we did the podcast interview, Andrew and his colleague Emma Bennett have written a short article about this which is relevant. This also has a short explainer about the ‘futures diamond’ he talked about.

Andrew also talked about tools like futures wheels and three horizons. He wrote a toolkit for Wales Community and Voluntary Action that helped community organisations use these to get to a preferred future and this is the facilitation guide for this.

Finally, for a more general introduction to futures, there is his  Five Books interview from 2017:
