Jonathan joined Innovate UK (then Technology Strategy Board) in August 2011 as Lead Technologist for Information and Communications Technology (ICT), where he drove investment and innovation amongst UK companies.  A first class honours graduate in Computer Science from the University of Hertfordshire in 1988, he undertook a wide range of roles in more than twenty years with BT including research, systems deployment, and technology and management consultancy, before becoming their futurologist.  Subsequently he ran his own independent futures consultancy business helping clients across all sectors understand the impacts of future disruptive change on their organisations.   He has travelled extensively to speak to, inspire and provoke a range of audiences on technology topics, and has also written for many journals and magazines and appeared on radio and television.   He uses his wide experience to help advise organisations with successful innovation, and currently formulates UK strategy for Emerging Technologies at Innovate UK. Over the last 18 months he has pioneered the new and exciting Analysis for Innovators (A4I) programme.
