I create and lead ventures that support entrepreneurship, revitalise cities, communities and bring new life and value to urban development. I work with real estate companies, venture investors, Government, private and not-for-profit enteprises. These ventures have been credited with raising £0.5bn+ ($600m) of new investment in towns and cities through public-private partnerships, creating many new businesses, jobs and bringing new creativity and innovation to public life. I have worked in the U.K., Russia, Eastern Europe, China and Canada. Ventures have been featured extensively by the international media, including the New York Times, Sunday Times, China Daily, Izvestia, Monocle and Forbes magazines. Recognition includes winning "the public space sister" of the Stirling Architectural Prize, an European Prize for Innovation, Observer Newspaper Ethical Award and being named a Maserati 100 Entrepreneur, 2016.
