Royal College of Art – InnovationRCA
InnovationRCA was set up to strengthen the culture of design innovation and entrepreneurialism at the Royal College of Art. I’m a Visiting Business Fellow and have been working as a consultant on a pro bono basis since 2008. I’m a committed supporter of their work to help students and graduates develop, protect and successfully commercialise their ideas.
Royal College of Art – Innovation Forum
As part of my work with the Royal College of Art, I helped to instigate and lead a well-received initiative known as Innovation Forum. It involved heads of design and strategy from companies including Sony, Eurostar, John Lewis Partnership, Ford and the Science Museum, who came together for a series of creative workshops, exhibitions and seminars with senior academics from the RCA. I believe these links deliver real benefits on both sides and should be encouraged at every opportunity.
Royal College of Art – Incubation programme
I have been involved as a consultant in the InnovationRCA incubation programme, which provides crucial guidance to recent RCA graduates and helps them turn a great idea into a profitable and investable business.
University of the Arts London
I have worked as an assessor on the MA course for the London College of Communication, one of the six colleges that make up the University of the Arts London.
