For over 20 years SAMI Consulting has been helping organisations make robust decisions in uncertain times. We are known as the home of scenario planning. We work through consulting, executive education and events, and research studies. Our core expertise is to future proof our clients’ organisations. We understand political, international and regulatory risk, economic uncertainty, social and cultural change, and the opportunities of technology for our clients. SAMI Consulting works for private, public and NGO sector clients.

We are currently working with ACCA on Finance Futures, for the European Commission on Foresight methodologies, for the UK Government’s Horizon Scanning Centre to deliver futures training, on Public Policy, and with Sovereign Housing Association to support their strategic thinking. And our Cobwebs events have helped (to date) over 200 organisations to think about how the future could be different, and the implications for their investment strategies.

Because we are all experienced, we are able to bring our networks to bear on our client's concerns. Our clients call this the “SAMI buzz”. We are happy to share it.
