I am a consultant specialises in assisting lone inventors and SMEs to commercialise their new ideas. My focus is the efficient, cost effective and strategic use of intellectual property (ways to protect your idea and ensure that no-one else copies it) and bringing the concept from an idea to reality.
This involves helping companies to write business plans, investment decks and pitches, briefing them on their IP options, researching potential suitors, and making introductions to potential licensees, partners or investors as appropriate.
I am currently:
i) The founder and director of a photonics company which translates photonics research into new products for industry and academia,
ii) As an IP specialist consultant advising on the accurate recording, listing and valuation of intangible assets and patents
iii) A business consultant specialising in setting up new businesses, technology transfer and commercialisation of new ideas
I also have experience in the research function of a large FTSE 100 company where my main role was open innovation and technology transfer (bringing new ideas from SME's and academia to market) and as an academic working in the UK and the USA.
This wide and varied experience gives me a unique insight into businesses both large and small and has enabled me to build up a vast network of very competent professional people across the UK.
I am a qualified Prince2 practitioner and through my own company, I have brought my own products to market and as part of Amersham plc I was part of a large team that brought a very complex system to the pharmaceutical market. I have also advised hundreds of companies and individuals on developing their own products and services as a business consultant and help companies to obtain full value from their IP and other intangible assets.
I am an SFEDI qualified business mentor and regularly work as a guest lecturer delivering talks on intellectual property, business planning and raising finance.
