I have worked in management consultancies (PA Consulting in the 80s and Generics in the 90s) and high-tech startups in addition to Academe (as a downtrodden postdoc).
I’m the co-founder of break-step productions ltd, a company specialising in creating and commercialising intellectual property.
Additionally, I now advise numerous startups and spinouts on how to stay commercially buoyant, based on my experience of the international technology business.
I also work on Business Development for the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (see e.g. www.su2p.com).
