My proudest project was to have launched Royal DSM’s open innovation platform (Bright Science & Technology Innovation Hub), from conceptualisation amidst a challenging Covid period. It also inspired a keen interest in food technology, and I'm trailing that interest in my next role, sniffing curiously and happily - like a mouse trailing cheese. 🐭🧀

I also welcome the challenge to launch 2 national innovation programmes with the government during the same timeline - in other thematic areas of Healthcare and the Built Environment. This exposure to different stakeholders and industries instilled an appreciation for sectoral nuance and adapting to new industries quickly
