Tessa Finlev 

Founder and Foresight Strategist 

After close to 15 years working as a professional futurists Tessa founded Facilitating Foresight, a boutique futures firm focused on building capacity and facilitating new skills and insights rooted in strategic foresight. Her goal is to give clients the building blocks needed to successfully grow and run a foresight program. Tessa develops corporate foresight to enable strong employee engagement, decisive leadership and decision-making for the 21st century, and a business mindset anchored in long-term outcomes over short-term gains.

Tessa was named a leading female futurist in Forbes and is Dolby Lab’s first ever in-house Foresight Strategist. Her career has spanned the intersection of futures thinking and peace building and social change, the future of pretty much any topic under the sun, facilitation and teaching, and designing and launching internal futures thinking functions. She is a two-time immigrant; Denmark —> US —> Kenya. This is her strategic super-power. Tessa is used to being an outsider and looking at opportunities and norms from different angles.
