Former CEO Siemens UK, & Former Chairman of Made Smarter

I'm the former CEO of Siemens UK having worked for the organisation for 33 years. I work closely with a number of UK Universities including the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University as a visiting Professor of both.

I am a passionate advocate for a new post-covid politics and economics, which should provide stronger leadership for innovation and technology led 'frontier industries' and industrial tech start-ups. I believe these should gain significantly more support as part of UK's Industrial Strategy and greater recognition as our national high productivity industries and prosperity engines. Above all, the 4th Industrial Revolution these frontier industries create, must be more inclusive and responsible, create opportunities for all and be a force for re-balancing our economy.
