Chris specialises in quantitative modelling, forecasting and scenario planning at Legacy Foresight. An economist by training, his expertise extends to pricing, revenue modelling and market sizing. What sets Chris’s work apart from more traditional econometric modelling is his interest in the impact of changing social and demographic structures and consumer behaviour – a key feature of the legacy sector. He was closely involved in the original legacy forecasting project in 1994, when he was Managing Director at the Henley Centre, with overall responsibility for the economics and modelling practices. Since then Chris has worked on a variety of forecasting and strategy projects for charities ranging from Guide Dogs and Save the Children to WaterAid and St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
