I support practical Innovation and Transformation for corporate intrapreneurs, and scale-up advisory for entrepreneurs, mainly in Insurance, Digitalisation & Technology, through my own firm, Bright Blue Hare (2016) & as Customer & Innovation Lead for specialist boutique consultancy, GreenKite (Oct. 2019).
I’m a proposition & Storytelling strategy expert, facilitator, & sought-after curator/presenter for Financial Services/Technology/Innovation events. Prior to going independent, I spent 28+ years in corporate leadership, building brands, teams and propositions in Publishing for specialist audiences, mainly in Financial Services. I’m part of TechNation’s FinTech Delivery Panel, sitting on the InsurTech Board and will be co-chairing the Open Finance workstream in 2020/21.
To make change happen and Innovation ‘stick’ in business we non-Techies — I’m a proud Humanities girl! — need to play an active part in bridging the gaps between us and the Techies. If as professional, ambitious women we want to take our rightful, active roles in business, we must engage with Digitalisation and make sure we bring ourselves forcefully into the conversation. This is a driving force in my work, and helping non-Techies to make informed decisions about Technology was a key motivation for designing & co-editing The AI Book (May 2020), & The InsurTech Book (June 2018), both bestsellers for publishers Wiley.
