Eleanor Snowden

Ellie holds an MA in the anthropology of social development and transformation, with a specialism in medical anthropology.  After working as a qualitative researcher in public policy and employment research, she found herself coming back to her roots and joining the Cynefin Centre in 2016.

Ellie currently leads development of the Centre’s Health Programme, building on her experience of supporting centre members in their use of SenseMaker® and surrounding methods.  Some of her more recent projects include: identifying drivers of child and early forced marriage with the Women’s Refugee Commission in the Philippines and Zimbabwe; an oral history of Nurses experiences during COVID-19 with the Royal College of Nursing (Northern Ireland and Scotland).  The work currently in development with the growing healthcare team at the Centre is focused on how best to support the healthcare workforce in the years to come.

Ever a proponent of embodied knowledge and exploring the epistemological and ontological possibilities of different modalities of health and healing, Ellie is also a trained massage therapist and yoga teacher.

We are the world leader in developing management approaches (in society, government and industry) that empower organisations to absorb uncertainty, detect weak signals to enable sense-making in complex systems, act on the rich data, create resilience and, ultimately, thrive in a complex world.
