Clem Sunter

Clem Sunter is probably best known for his "High Road/Low Road" scenarios from South Africa in the Mid 1980's, when he was Head of Scenario planning function at Anglo America. He spent 36 years in Anglo America, mainly in the Gold Division where he ended up as a Chairman and Chief Executive. Presently Clem is Chairman of the Anglo America's Chairman's Fund.

In early 2001 "The Mind of a Fox," co-authored with Chantel Ilbury, was released. The book anticipated a major terrorist attack on a western city before the September 11th tragedy in New York. The book has sold over 40 000 copies.

In 2007 Clem’s new book, “Socrates and the Fox: A strategic dialogue”, co-authored with Chantel Illbury, was released. By its very nature Socratic dialogue transforms the strategic conversation from the normal, dreary type of superficial analysis that companies go through nowadays to a full-blooded, back-to-basics debate. The authors have developed a unique and independently crafted methodology which integrates scenario planning into the mainstream process of strategic planning and decision-making. Their version of the Socratic method has come about through rigorous application, re-evaluation and fine-tuning in the course of facilitating countless sessions with a diverse portfolio of companies throughout the world – from giant multinationals to family-run businesses.

Clem continues to be one of the country's favourite speakers ... his presentation style is both thought provoking and entertaining. His popular conference and seminar topics include:

-"Mind of a Fox" - How to use scenario planning in everyday context
- Scenario for the HIV/Aids Epidemic in South Africa
- Why companies should change from predatory lions into caring elephants and become sustainable businesses.

What our clients say ...
