With degrees in Psychology and Marketing Management I spent the first decade of my career in creative, innovation, and strategy roles across the globe, helping large organisations communicate and tell their stories in more compelling ways. The unanticipated success of Wok+Wine – tested in 12 countries and featured in Harvard Business Review – got me fascinated with human connectivity and led me to complete a PhD in Design Engineering at Imperial College London. Building on large bodies of social science and management knowledge that describe the critical importance of human connectivity in organisations, my research focused on developing tools that can support individuals and organisations in improving human connectivity outcomes – by design rather than by accident.
Ambit is a research, design, and consulting studio that takes the guesswork out of human behaviour. We develop, teach, and implement powerful tools that help organisations to understand why people behave as they do and how behaviour can be influenced, to improve individual and business outcomes.
Simply Does It is my storytelling and animation label. Simply Does It specialises in making complex things simple through the creation of concise yet impactful narratives that speak to your audience in a way that moves them to act. The secret to an effective story is often not what you put in but what you leave out.
Wok+Wine (pron: “wok-n-wine”) helps you to find the people you didn’t know you were looking for. Described by Harvard Business Review as “an experiment in social chemistry”, Wok+Wine is a simple yet incredibly effective experience that has proven to be universally effective in helping groups to connect rapidly and authentically.
