I am an enthusiastic, versatile and creative young professional, with experience and interest in innovation and design thinking. I am qualified in 3D Design: Industrial Product Design from the University of Plymouth. I have spent the last year working on a Management Knowledge Transfer Partnership (mKTP) project to use design thinking for innovating business processes in a small engineering consultancy in Aberdeen.
I have experience in innovation management and leadership, having completed 5 practical modules per year while at university, and have most recently been project managing my mKTP project - which is a multi-organisational project. My background is in product development but I have since gained experience in systems and process innovation as part of my time on the mKTP project.
I am always looking for new learning opportunities and am especially keen to continue to work in innovation management and leadership. I have started - and although temporarily paused plan to continue - a master of research examining how virtual workspaces have influenced creative and collaborative work activities.
