Why are you passionate about business models and business model innovation?
When I started making films in the 90's I wanted to create a production company but every time I worked on a business plan, I couldn't see how one would make money. I started to experiment with different business structures but it was a challenge before digital. As the internet and film technology started to blossom I started to work more across digital and interactive content but always on the business side. Since then I have ran business workshops, unconferences, festivals that have been around theme of business models, strategy for the digital/creative sectors.
How would you best describe your level of expertise when it comes to business models?
I am the Theme champion for Business Models for the Creative Industries in the UK. A ridiculously long title but what it means is I work for the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network and help to develop knowledge and resources across all the creative industries in the UK. https://connect.innovateuk.org/web/creativektn
My other role is I work as a business consultant enabling companies to develop their business strategy and model. Some recent clients include: Royal Shakespeare Company, UNESCO, BBC, Viadeo, Social Media Week London and some digital start ups.
