The Futurenauts

The Futurenauts are Ed Gillespie and Mark Stevenson. Drawn together by their shared frustrations with the current world, but love for the potential of a common future which is regenerative, equitable, humane and just the duo have been working with organisations of all sizes for over a decade to stretch the imagination of the possible, and achieve transformative results for their clients in a process they call ‘insultancy’. “It’s like consultancy except shorter, more impactful and a damn site more fun, “ says Mark.


“Our clients do not expect an easy ride, but they do end up back in control of their lives”

Says Ed

The Futurenauts Podcast

As fellow ‘reluctant futurists’ they tackle the interconnected challenges of tomorrow with a heady mix of humour, humility and hyper-self-reflectivity, helping clients identify and wrangle with the toughest and most important of questions beyond their comfort zones and occasionally wilful blindness. Alongside comedian Jon Richardson they co-present the podcast ‘Jon Richardson and the Futurenauts – Book of Revelations’ which takes a serious but irreverent look at our grand challenges and how to address them (worldwide, the podcast is ranked in the top 0.5% by listenership).
