Charlie Nelson is based in Melbourne, Australia.

He is the founder of foreseechange, a forecasting and insights company.  He has developed a unique forecasting service based on the wisdom of the masses and leading indicators.

He has created a range of cost effective forecasting and insights services which are available online.

Personally, he is interested in the natural world and the enigmas of the ancients.  He has been fortunate to have visited many wonderful parts of the world and recorded a portfolio of photographs.

At the intersection of the professional and personal interests, he researches issues such as the impact of astronomical cycles on rainfall and the factors which influence the general public’s level of belief in climate change.  His curiosity has led him to analyse a range of important issues such as the factors influencing Australia’s road toll.
