About Us

Like the ocean, the world won't wait for you to be ready.

Rogue Wave Scenarios design and deliver immersive, scenario-based workshops that improve your ability to plan and react in a rapidly changing and radically uncertain world.

We enable our clients to think clearly in the present and critically about the future. This is resilience. 
At RWS, we call it a Storm Mentality®; enabling individuals and teams to navigate the storms they are in and prepare for the storms to come.

In a world where success is determined by an ability to overcome challenges, RWS helps to develop a dynamic decision-making edge.

Principles forged in the eye of the storm 

We learned our lessons the hard way.

Rogue Wave Scenarios’ origin story is defined by one of the most dramatic sequence of events in the history of ocean sport. 

In a journey to the very edge, our founders’ survival was ultimately determined by a few inches and a series of extra-ordinary decisions. 

Rooted in the psychological science, our methodology brings together extreme life or death experience with the expertise of the world’s leading scenarios planners.
