I’m responsible for planning and leading the delivery of great thought leadership programmes.

As co-founder of Grist, I work with the board on vision, strategy, proposition, performance and governance. I focus on developing new services, leading major projects and managing the client services team.

Prior to launching Grist, I held senior editorial positions at International Thomson, Financial Times and The Economist, in London, Hong Kong and New York, creating books, reports and magazines with some of the world’s leading business thinkers.

I love discordant jazz, cycling and cooking (plus family and friends, obvs). I’ve written a book on the history of track cycling Ride! Ride! Ride!, although it sounds more like a cheesy cowboy film (another love of mine).
