After nine years running Nesta, the UK's innovation foundation, I started a new role as Professor of Collective Intelligence, Public Policy and Social Innovation at University College London this spring. 

I'll also be working this year with the UNDP, Demos Helsinki, the New Institute in Hamburg, and various national governments (including Bangladesh, Finland and UAE),

and will be a WEF Schwab Fellow.

Over the years I have had many roles - as a CEO, social entrepreneur, policy-maker and author, working at different times in civil society, government, technology and academia, and hopefully gaining a good perspective on how the world works and how it can be changed. 

This website brings together some of my writings, ideas, videos and other materials.   I hope you find it interesting and useful.
