Creating transformation through connections
I believe that the future direction of successful business will not come from one or two visionary strategists in a company, but by embedding the opportunity to try new things throughout the organisation. It is the role of leaders to put in place the environment where this can occur.
As an engineer I have immersed myself in technology from an early age as part of my personal and professional life. It was the opportunity to try new things that led me to electronics and then to an Engineering Doctorate in biometrics and machine learning. But I temper my love of the new with an impatience to see tangible value delivered.
I see myself as a critical friend trying to understand the value new technology can bring to business and society. Involvement in technical theatre helped me learn that technology can be an art. Delivery of major government biometric systems helped teach me that technology could have real societal impact.
