Strong, digitally and customer-focused Advisor or NED

As an experienced leader, with 25 years in digital and design, I’ve worked with start-ups to global enterprise organisations. In both permanent and interim capacities, I’ve led built, led and re-structured teams and designed and built new organisational capabilities. I’ve helped start-ups through funding rounds by working with their founders and teams to visualise their future. And I’ve worked with organisations as they’ve delivered deep transformation across digital and other functions, having to design models to create distributed, cross-functional teams to get better alignment through design and delivery.

I’ve also founded and led digital product design agencies and start-ups, working in the design field for a considerable amount of time and specifically digital for the last 25 years. I bring a mix of technology understanding, with a background in engineering, and draw upon a range of skills including strategic modelling, storytelling, design, delivery model design, and many years of practitioner and leadership experience.

I am able to bring a strong set of skills to any Advisory or NED roles in a variety of organisations, bringing a long and deep set of experiences to bear. If you feel that you might benefit from having someone with that experience engaged in your organisation as an Advisor or NED, please get in touch.
