After nine years running Nesta, the UK's innovation foundation, I've just started a new role as Professor of Collective Intelligence, Public Policy and Social Innovation at University College London (part-time now and full-time from the end of April 2020). 


I'll also be working this year with the UNDP, Demos Helsinki 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.
