I have extensive experience working across sectors and continents modernising businesses, enriching public services, and helping improve lives through the strategic and creative application of digital technology, data, and content.

Currently, I work as an innovation consultant directly with clients or through selected agencies seeking to boost their strategic, creative or business development impact. I develop strategy, run design sprints, improvide customer experience, and introduce new operating models / ways of working to develop in-house confidence and digital capabilities.  Additionally, I have co-designed a resilient leadership framework for human-driven tech-enabled sustainable transformation. 

I also take on interim client-side roles. I recently worked on an interim basis as the Chief Digital Officer with Lambeth Council (2019-2020), Digital Director with the Prince’s Trust (2018-19) and  Director of Digital Transformation with the Disasters Emergency Committee (2016-2017). Plus, I spent 5+ years in WPP’s MEC (now Wavemaker) where I led on digital strategy and established the agency’s social media practice. 

Additional roles and appointments: Visiting Lecturer at the University of Greenwich since 20011. Co-author: Beyond Clicks for Causes, Agile Digital Communications in Communicating Causes published by Routledge, June 2018. Fellowship Councillor,
