I am a design consultant, researcher, writer and educator in the creative industries. My industry background is in architecture, interiors, and brand consultancy (Wolff Olins, HOK, RTKL, Orange, Starbucks) and in academia I have been a lecturer, programme director and research professor in design management. I have written two books, ‘The Fundamentals of Design Management’ (AVA 2010), and ‘Design Management: Managing Design Strategy, Process and Implementation’ (AVA 2006), now a best-seller in 12 languages. I am now writing more on design's relationship to business, society and the environment. I live in London and regularly work with with universities, cultural institutions and companies across Europe, Asia and the USA.

Support to NPO's mainly in an educational capacity (eg student internships, projects), and in raising profile of issues via writing and publication. Through my books and writing I promote 'good design' projects, processes and practices: ones that demonstrate a solid business, societal and environmental benefit.
