We champion ambition - those who dare in the face of uncertainty

We can’t stand it when software company owners and team leaders feel like it’s all going wrong, and they’ve lost the ability to see, let alone achieve any delivery success in the future. And as technologists ourselves, we’ve been there, we know what’s it like for you.

That’s why we love doing what we do - serving companies that become lost in midst of a transformation or the post-acquisition phase of an integration, to bring relief and support to those ambitious people who need it most - the change makers, the crazy ones.

Throughout our engagements, Daring Futures develops leadership at all levels with the situational awareness to act decisively in the face of uncertainty - enabling talent to focus on what really matters, daring to build the products and services that you’re proud of.

Most importantly though, we exist to help people to help themselves. We co-create our work with you, and we’ll be in the arena beside you as you tackle the challenges at hand. Our legacy is to leave you ready to engage with any daring future you choose.

Meet Andrew Kidd, Founder CEO of Daring Futures

For over 40 years I’ve had the privilege to work in and lead many software development teams within organisations of all sizes, and so understand their pains as well as their goals. From startups looking to maximise their limited budgets, to government departments looking to demonstrate good stewardship of the public purse. As well as the constraints of safety critical environments in the military and those heavily regulated such as banking and pharmaceutical. Each time, helping them to realise their ambitions.

In these uncertain times, I coach leaders and their teams in being better able to predict their future, by creating it, together.

My mission is to enable leaders and their teams achieve great things by working smarter not harder. Together we unleash their talent and engage in effective and collaborative work ... to seize their own daring future.

Here’s what our clients say

We have had the privilege of working with people across a range of industries and companies. For each, we have endeavoured to do everything we can to help them seize their own daring future.

“Your thoughtful approach to the values and priorities of military personnel, intertwined with the need for sustainable digital specialisations showed a deep understanding of the MOD environment and how benefits realisation can be achieved.”

“Always there to provide a deep & thoughtful challenge to improve and encourage the best working procedures and practices. Also showing a genuine interest in people and making time to support and help them develop.”

“There are those who are good at their work, those who are great at their work and then a select few who transcend all expectations. Daring Futures provides this broad and deep, holistic service, going so much further than just standard provision.”

“... an absolute joy to work with. The combination of emotional intelligence and encyclopedic knowledge of delivery methodologies meant Daring Futures are always the first I would approach for coaching and guidance. A true asset to any team, and their value cannot be overstated.”

“Daring Futures took time and care to get to know me, developing an understanding of me, my approach, and MVV so they could best position themselves to deliver within their role and support me to do so in mine, as a true team partnership. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Daring Futures and would love to do so again, without hesitation.”

“First of all, Daring Futures cares. That shouldn't be overlooked. Yes, they are creative expert coaches with many tools and frameworks but fundamentally, they care - which is why their tools are so effective.”
