Hello. I’m an author and executive coach with over twenty years of leadership and management experience. I have consulted for the British Council and Linux Foundation, coached leaders at United Talent Agency and Arts Council England, and delivered training around the world from Accra to Amman. 

I’m also Professor of Innovation and the Creative Economy, and Associate Dean of Knowledge Exchange, at University of the Arts London, one of the world’s leading creative universities.


I previously worked in the music and media industries - writing for the Guardian, appearing on the BBC and performing at the Pompidou Centre and Royal Albert Hall.


My books include Different Every Time: The Authorised Biography of Robert Wyatt (Serpent’s Tail 2014), a Radio 4 book of the week, and Distributed Creativity: How Blockchain Will Transform the Creative Economy (Palgrave 2018). I hold a Postgraduate Certificate in executive coaching as well as a PhD.
