“Jereme’s appointment is a strategic hire for our team as we strive to provide our clients with an unparalleled level of service,” says Alana Newbrook, our Director for Advisory and Regional Director for Sydney. “In a year full of uncertainty where bushfires, droughts, floods and a global health pandemic have tested the resilience of our communities, we anticipate demand for our capabilities to increase as clients increasingly seek to be future ready by understanding the risks and opportunities to their operations.”
Jereme’s portfolio will consist of working with our clients to manage major macro trends and how they will likely be impacted over the next 10-50 years. He says, “This is an exciting space to be advising clients on because it is diverse, future focused and -extremely topical for everyone.”
Macro trends or what WSP considers Future Ready trends consist of a wide range of societal implications which include contemporary advancements in technology such as big data and future mobility as well as the most pressing challenge of our times, climate change. The broader implications of these trends need to be considered as they lead to secondary impacts causing wide spread uncertainty and disrupt the way we live, work and play.
Historically strategic risk management has been undertaken by assessing topical concerns or performing ‘what-if’ analysis. WSP provides clients with a methodical approach to identifying and assessing notable strategic risks, furthering our position of contributing to our client’s immediate and long-term success.
