Founded by Tom Preston in 1968, we’re a privately-owned business management firm, comprising honored and extensively experienced consulting executives.
Recently, ForeseeNow, a Preston Global extension, (FSN) became the latest identifier. Consulting as well as hands-on tactical activities extend far and wide; yes, even globally. Boards plus corporate, institutional, agency top executives, as well as high-profile individuals, retain us.
FSN’s team responds to enigmatic situations; otherwise, through vulnerability assessments that pre-identify and address slowly evolving or imminent leadership problems.
Step one in all cases matches patron needs with our experts’ principal areas of specialization. Each well trained, knowledgeable, mature pro is a superb analyst and practitioner.
Beyond a half-century aiding clients.
Nearing year 54 we decided to restructure certain operational patterns based on our estimating additional types of existing challenges with different twists. More alarmingly, based on recent FSN Foreseeability methods, we expect a rash of abnormal challenges within the next 18 months and beyond.
Our parent organization originated in Lexington, KY. Late in 2020 all administrative oversight functions transferred to Murfreesboro, TN. Most preventive and responsive activities are conducted on at-risk patron locations. Why there?
Because fast-moving situational contingencies coupled with operational services we deliver have long been proven both expedient and less expensive.
ForeseeNow purposely is an “avant-garde” title. It illuminates decades of achievements resulting from innovative, battle-tested and adaptable team members. Our history as well as current practices echo Mr. Preston’s original purpose.
“We shall lead explorations, innovations, alterations, advancements and applications for our primary disciplines. Doing so will increase significantly, client benefit. The bottom line means even greater opportunities for attaining objectives and goals.”
Discovering and tailoring innovative ideas to prevent, defeat and/or resolve expected or urgent circumstance alarming organizations and individuals requires the consummate practitioner. Thus our Consulting Executives!
What’s coming down requires keen foresight.
Previous and particularly 21st century state of affairs confirm how crises, emergencies, threats and violence foment. Add alarming public issues, brand reputation challenges, false rumors, internal/external communication deficiencies, foreign source influences, and certainly escalating abnormal human behavior.
Correctly handling each, whether “before-during-and-after,” summons the very finest expertise.
FSN specializations rely heavily on vulnerability assessments (VAs). Each confidential VA report, aimed at scenarios explicit to business harm — internally and externally — will contain a plethora of discoveries plus solution ideas to improve defenses against adversarial influences — many unrelated.
VAs are life and property savers. They mitigate intrusive events; they demonstrate to employees, visitors, neighbors, media and other observers leadership emphasis on behalf of community well being.
Removing sharp curves from paths to success.
Coalescing vast experiences from talented senior-level expertise along with quantifying research via self-discovery about human motivations highlights FSN’s extraordinary accuracies. Ad not only when predicting, but also for providing the best outcomes.
During a rather long tenure practically every imaginable sequence of events has challenged this firm’s skills as client guardians. (But not all. Odiously, something atypical in mode and scope will appear abruptly.)
Terrorism, a prime example.
We confront extreme violence on a regular basis. Actually, Tom Preston’s first encounter against terrorists was in 1958!
The event is a cumulation. Sophisticated terrorists patiently prepare. They recruit, train, raise funds, alter their own locations, acquire explosives and weapons. They mentor zealots, are adept in disseminating propaganda through social and traditional media, and excel surveilling potential targets.
Management, just as with workplace violence and possibilities for active shootings either at random or intended, should never ignore periods of silence. As both a crisis and emergency, terrorism remains overlooked by business leaders.
FSN’s episodes against transnational terrorism as well as leaderless resisters (a more accurate term to replace lone wolf), vastly exceeds — verified by direct encounters — firms focusing on somewhat similar specialties to ours. The same is true regarding other violent acts. Our library contains additional commentary, which increases periodically.
Prevention is cost-effective!
Indeed, today’s complex and dangerous world demands backgrounds such as we have. Aftermaths from major crises and emergencies can be as daunting as all but the worst episodes of violence.
