I am the Head of Programmes for the Growth and Innovation Team. I oversee the strategy and delivery of our Design in the Public Sector and Public Service Innovation programmes and our invention accelerator, Spark. Our programmes aim to put the needs of people at the heart of products and processes; addressing some of the toughest challenges which face our society.

I previously worked at the British Council as Director Architecture Design Fashion, commissioning a range on international programmes which are driven by addressing global challenges through design, exploring the social and cultural value of design.
