Knowledge Transfer Adviser
I am a Knowledge Transfer Adviser in the West Midlands covering South Birmingham, Solihull, Warwickshire, Coventry, parts of Worcestershire and surrounding areas.
The Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) support businesses to engage with expert academic teams on a project-based collaboration delivering sustainable innovation with positive economic impact and additional societal or environmental benefits. As well as looking after businesses supporting their projects with knowledge bases in many parts of the country, I also maintain relationships with a number of designated universities in relation to their participation in the programme.
I have extensive experience in Manufacturing, Energy and Engineering sectors and have held Board Level Directorships in automotive and construction PLCs and a number of non-Executive Director positions. My expertise includes company flotations, mergers and acquisitions, overseas joint ventures, together with growing companies and delivering open innovation in a very diverse range of sectors.
I also have considerable board coaching and mentoring experience.
