Leader of the Open Data Institute Cornwall
Digital civilisation and an artisan perspective
Digital Plymouth is about crossing boundaries, making connections and in a nutshell that’s what I do too. As a craftsperson, a digital business strategist and the Project lead for the Open Data Institute in Cornwall, I don’t fit into any obvious category, which can make a standard bio a bit tricky! My work experience includes working with large UK organisations including the Food Standards Agency and Macmillan Cancer Support to develop data strategies and networked organisation. I specialise in the Housing sector and produced the Connected Housing Study between 2012-2015. I believe the South West can do amazing things as a networked ecosystem. But cultural change is hard! And that’s why I also make early digital civilisation artefacts out of clay, to fire the synapses that will help us power up to our next stage of digitally enabled evolution.
