I am a senior executive with over 20 years of digital experience, specialising in innovation in the product space. I operate at the strategic execution level - creating business visions and goals and translating these into executable products that deliver tangible value for organisations and their customers.
For the majority of my career, I have worked in media organisations playing a lead role in some of the sector’s largest, transformative digital product launches (including the award winning Times and Sunday Times paywall and BT Sport).
I’m passionate about encouraging women in our sector and am a co-founder of 10 Digital Ladies, a networking event for women in tech.
I regularly speak at industry events and conferences including keynotes at Mind the Product London and Leading the Product (Melbourne and Sydney).
Consultant and entrepreneur focused on developing new opportunities in social/ ethical business. 10 years of commercial and social business sector experience, 6 years of public sector partnership experience.
Track record of founding successful social enterprises, creating commercial outcomes for clients, developing new partnerships and designing programmes that enable innovation. Specific expertise in purpose-led startup strategy. Experience of working with innovators in wide range of sectors - health, social housing, higher education, sports, regeneration and finance.
My passion is working with great people to take great ideas ( a service, a business, a partnership ) from strategy to delivery.
