I'm a creative person.
That means what I do is impossible to define. Whether an idea, a turn of phrase, a photograph, a sketch or a 100 feet wall drawn by hand as a complex system it's how I think and what drives me.
I've observed the power and magic of being able to translate intangible ideas and seemingly unconnected things into a complete picture and a coherent story. Visually. Fast. I've seen it change people's minds and alter their behaviours. That's an incredible thought.
By using visualisation and related techniques we add real value to how we all think and work. I'm now applying everything I've learned about this to making a difference.
For the last 20 years we've been developing a collaborative, visual and facilitative approach to the challenges and opportunities of the enterprise, and society.
We've now built a unique set of tools and techniques. We've helped all shapes and sizes of client across pretty much every kind of challenge and we've done it in many corners of the world.
Before Group Partners I ran my own businesses in the Design, Media and Marketing industries - I finally sold that business to WPP Group plc.
Before that I worked in the emerging field of emerging technology and computing in Cambridge. I was privileged to help some chums launch the BBC Microcomputer which led to the formation of ARM - the chip development business - now one of the UK's most successful businesses
. Cambridge is where I tried to study Fine Art and spent my mysterious and surrealistic youth. I think.
I can't remember much before that!
