What does your job involve? Working with top-level executives to develop new business propositions utilising emerging technologies.

How did you get into your current role? I started in accountancy, and moved into developing IT solutions like the first home shopping and banking internet sites 20 years ago. From there I moved onto creating new business propositions, as diverse as IP based surveillance in 2002, tele-health in 2004, acoustic pipeline monitoring in 2008, and vehicle cyber security in 2014.
