Like what you see in our forecast reports? Curious about learning how to forecast?
Our workshops introduce participants to the essentials of forecasting. We cover probability training, cognitive bias risk, base rates, inside/outside views, forecaster checklists, and conditional probability estimates.
'We worked with the team from Swift Centre on a project to forecast risks to one of our biggest revenue drivers. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them: they're professional, responsive and practical, working hard to understand not just the percentage probabilities of key events, but what this would actually mean for our business. Not only will the output of the process will be a very useful adjunct to our future decision making, but the process itself was excellent training to improve our own calibration and forecasting skills. We'll definitely look forward to working with the team again and would recommend them to anyone interested in how world-class forecasting can contribute to their work.'

We guide participants from thinking about risks to building forecast questions under different scenarios with interactive exercises. Each workshop involves taking a real life problem and generating estimates in collaboration with the Swift Centre's expert forecasters.

Our workshops are conducted under the Chatham House rule: the anonymised forecasts can be made public, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the participants will be revealed.
