In her role as a Senior Consultant with Cognitive Edge and an Accredited Network Practitioner, Jules is involved in the design, capture and analysis of client projects. She has worked with public, private and third sector clients in Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Americas and Africa. Prior to joining Cognitive Edge as a Consultant, Jules worked in various roles in wealth management, automotive tuning and e-commerce, all of which provided invaluable phronesis.
Jules aims to help individuals and organisations with their decision making and sense making process by getting them to start conversations – homiliai – about the complexity inherent in our world, and turn them towards naturalistic methods and SenseMaker®. After completing a neo-humanistic Classical education and taking the SATs, Jules took a five-year hiatus before re-commencing studies in 2009. She read a double major in English Linguistics and Literature, and hopes to read Classics and Theology at a later date.
Her passions are diverse and mostly arcane, spanning vocal performance of Early Church Music and Baroque repertoires, target shooting, rugby, and advocating a return to classical education. In her spare time she continues her study of Latin and Greek, primarily to facilitate a fuller understanding of the Roman and Byzantine liturgies and an appreciation for early Church history.
More prosaic but no less interesting intellectual pursuits include computational linguistics, urban planning and governance, futures and foresight, climate change, narrative, and the role of the rising Global South in the next century.
