I have the curiosity of an engineer and the acumen of a business unit leader. I'm learning all about the digital economy here at Surrey in a practicable way, working with Tier 1 clients in construction, aviation and space, energy and communiations. Getting the effective balance of the power of technology vs the emotional intelligence of the human workforce is fascinating. It lies at the core of every enterprise seeking digital awareness and positive transformation. From the creation of content, the development of work programmes and the delivery of deep-seated studies and business change guidance, as an Advisor, my mix of technical know-how, communication efficacy and management expertise has been highly influential. These are indeed fascinating times and understanding with empathy the impact of artificial and emotional intelligence has never been more crucial when making business decisons in these uncertain, digital times.
