As Operations Director, I have taken a lead role in managing the development of the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) including funding management of a new building with large industry demonstration facilities and project management of marketing and knowledge transfer programmes. This includes:
Business development and marketing programmes
Delivery of demonstrator sites
Stimulation of collaborative research
Development and management of international projects including delivery of briefing events, overseas presentations, links with UK and Overseas governments.
I have over 20 years experience as a leader and manager working with technology projects at both strategic and operational levels. This includes over 15 years at director level in start-up companies and large organisations.
I have represented science parks at an international level, managed large knowledge transfer projects, as well as setting up and managing a university spin out company.
This work has provided me with a good knowledge of technology, business and innovation from both the public and private sector perspective, including managing technical consultancies serving top level government and large business clients.
