My Story

I've been working in a world of change and disruption most of my life. 

Since 1997, when I launched my first digital transformation at Associated Newspapers, I've chalked up a lot of firsts:

  • the first simultaneous online and theatrical movie release with the British Film Council;

  • launching one of the world's first data science consultancies;

  • one of the first consultancies to be run on agile principles;

  • a pioneering study of the use of data from wearable devices on the workforce...


I've never shied from the challenge of the new.

Today I work with businesses (and their leaders) around the world to build resilience, growth and adaptablity. I do this in two ways:

  1. As a mentor and educator with OpenClassrooms and Stanford, in particular on a master's diploma in Digital Transformation;

  2. Working directly with business leaders using my Five Forces framework to help them create the great businesses of tomorrow.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
