Biography

I help companies build and strengthen new product development and product management practices with a core focus on the integration of OSINT (open source intelligence) data gathering and competitive intelligence to monitor and inform business decisions, strategy and tactics. I work across a multitude of markets including a range of information service providers, e-publishing, startups, investigative journalists, inventors and NGOs supporting dissidents. Services include bespoke research & analysis, fractional product leadership, workshops and consultation.
