Business Connector for Lambeth (12 month secondment) at Business in the Community

United Kingdom

I have been a project management professional for over 20 years delivering large scale, £multi-million budget programmes, whilst leading multi-disciplined technical teams to achieve outsourced transition and transformation outcomes with quantifiable benefits for clients across a number of public and private business sectors.

Most recently I have become immersed in all things digital, developing and proving the components of an industrialised sustainable innovation life cycle (benchmark/ideation/incubation/PoC/transformation), which has become my passion.

So much so that I have now turned my attention to bringing these skills to the local community by embarking on a 12-month secondment to the Business In The Community's Business Connector programme based in Lambeth. The experience of being a Business Connector provides a unique opportunity for business people to embed into a local area – developing skills, behaviours and knowledge that can change the way businesses and communities interact and benefit each other. - See more at: http://www.bitc.org.uk/programmes/business-connectors.

I am really looking forward to the challenge, so feel free to contact me if you want to know more or feel you have something to offer to local voluntary, social or SME groups.
