It’s August and I just realised that I did not do my 2018 update – I guess a good sign – been busy! It was great to continue my relationships with some existing clients and to get involved with a new hub for new sports-related businesses.
At UCL, I coached the talented Feodora Rayner in taking forward The Mobile Academy model to find new business models for today’s technology capabilities. I was also invited back to UCL to deliver my trilogy of masterclasses for rooms full of start-ups.
At Pearson , I was happily engaged on a number of different projects from a variety of different departments:
- I designed and ran training for a group of their suppliers, all about new innovation approaches being adopted by their commissioning teams
- I provided a series of one-on-one and team product coaching sessions
- Excited as ever, I also rolled my sleeves up and delivered insights from a number of qualitative research projects – it is great to see the successful products that are getting traction as a result
I ran a rewarding couple of days workshop with startups and scaleups at Sport Tech Hub.
Here’s what they said about it: â€œâ€¦Changed, clarified and refined the way I think about my risky assumptions, hypothesis and running the next round of customer feedback â€¦very engaging, productive and usefulâ€¦ of immediate value whilst rooted in good practice and known tools and techniquesâ€¦helped break down important steps in a clear and structured wayâ€¦â€
I rocked into 2019 with sign off to some blended product coaching / qualitative research for a rather exciting new product PLUS a secret – which I will tell you about in 2019!
Thanks to great clients throughout 2018 and their testimonials.
