Paul Inness

He helps people to join up the dots between insights, innovation and then the implementation. Often this is called strategy!

He challenges people to think big whilst solving small. Dreaming is always allowed.

He does my work across various sectors: technology, automotive, medtech, and charity. That means I see the big and the small, the complex and the simple, the haves and have nots.

His specialties are: Market analysis, customer insights, strategy development, product management, data and analytics, digital transformation, innovation, M&A, and organisational change.
