What’s The Navigator? 

The Navigator is a newsletter for people at the helm of business; for people who’s job it is to inspire movement, and who want to have better conversations about strategic design, research and foresight.

It’s written by Sarah Ronald, founder of the strategic design consultancy Nile. It includes regular contributions from the Nile team, a group of excellent people who spend their days clearing the path to progress through research, psychology and design.

Why read it?

Every month we share stories, signals, reflections, and insight from the front lines of our strategic design work.

Over time we hope to help you do what we do:

  • Cut through complexity and find better solutions to business challenges

  • Talk with confidence about the power of design, research, and foresight

  • Understand the behaviours and motivations that drive people to change

  • Scan the horizon and discover signals and trends you can use to steer your business

See you in your inbox!
