I am a Partner at Public Digital, helping governments, public institutions, commercial organisations and political leaders with digital transformation.
I worked in the UK civil service for 6 years, spending time in 5 government departments, covering digital, energy, health, climate change and business. I was appointed as a senior civil servant at 27.
While at the Government Digital Service, I led the team that delivered the first government digital service standard and design manual, set up the Technology Leaders network and wrote the Digital Efficiency Report. I spent most of my time on strategy, data, governance and other types of bureaucratic hacking.
I ran a government review into applications of the Internet of Things, commissioned from Government's Chief Scientific Advisor by the UK Prime Minister in 2014.
Since leaving government, I have worked as a freelance digital consultant, spoken at a few events, and written widely on government and institutional reform. I was a Fellow of the Cambridge University's Centre for Science and Policy, and briefly a Visiting Lecturer at UCL's Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose.
I graduated from Oxford University in 2006 with a first in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
