London, UK

I am curious about people, places, change and innovation and why it can be so hard to make things happen.

I have twenty years of public service and have worked for five years in a think tank. My first degree is in human and physical geography from Reading and my masters is in behavioural science from LSE.

In my blogs I explore a range of topics and share my insights about the world, what I’m learning, personal productivity and anything else that provokes me to write.

This is my blog and where I share my thinking, ideas and content. By following the links at the top of the page you can find more specific content on:
