Marguerite Coetzee

I am curious about the things that make us human.”

With a Masters in Anthropology and a Post-Graduate in Futures Studies, experience as a marketing consultant, and skilled in visual storytelling, Marguerite focuses on conducting research, formulating strategies, and theorising about culture and the future. Her background in Anthropology gives her the tools with which to navigate what makes us human, and training in Futures Studies enables her to understand, prepare for, and create change. Marguerite established Omniology – a research and strategy project based on the principles of the social sciences and of business. She works as an independent consultant in South Africa, with a global network of thinking partners and clients.

Q&A

1. What’s your biggest achievement / Something you’re proud of yourself for?

2. What’s your biggest fear / something that holds you back?

“Recognising the change that needs to unfold, but not having it be realised. How do you know when you have an idea whose time has come?”

3. What’s your biggest contribution / Something you like to share?

“Change the way you see the world in order to change the way you experience and behave in the world.”
