Your facilitation of your Future-Basing® process was interesting and motivating, and the workshop was excellent. All together, it was a grand way to start the process of creating a unified road-map for hydrogen technologies in the UK, and to find common ground for a coordinated large-scale project with multi-regional collaboration.
The Future-Basing® process is truly an amazing tool for stimulating creativity and fostering teamwork. Thanks again for sharing your talents and knowledge with us.

Not a week goes by where I don't think about my career and the journey I want to go on. I always think of the Future basing technique that you taught me, and it stands me in really good stead when I want some focus!
Martin Wallbank, BAE Systems
Having gone through Future-basing with you on several subjects, I used it to make some big changes in my life. I appreciate the principles and process of Future-basing because it helps me to focus on what really makes a difference and what it takes to achieve that.

“Everything - absolutely everything - that I had put in my plan has come true! Not only has it come true, but it's all happened a couple of years earlier that I imagined. My life is so good right now I can't believe it! The mapped out sheet did not become my bible. I did not refer to it regularly in fact not ever. It was not an all-consuming plan to which I paid daily homage. I did not have to repeat a million times a day “I will be successful.” I just wrote it down and got on with my life.”
