I’m a C-level leader in UK tech currently leading Tech East to be a top 5 UK tech cluster by 2020. With an impartial voice I help create improved entrepreneur and scaleup support, collaborative networking and a clear, strong voice to UK government, investors and other ecosystem influencers. Our core themes are 1. Talent & Skills; 2. Smart money (capital + business support); 3. Physical Infrastructure & Workspace for digital business. I have grown tech and media product businesses successfully (at Thomson, Informa and RICS). Outside my day job I am an NED at UEA Norwich Business School, sit as digital advisor to the Cultural Board of New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership and am a founding member of the UK Tech Cluster Group.
