I am a communications professional with 30 years experience in the Diplomatic Service working in British Embassies abroad in the fields of trade promotion and public diplomacy. As a Trade Consul with UK Trade & Investment I advised companies doing business in international markets. I led the trade team at the British Consulate in Chicago USA, specialising in the advanced engineering, automotive and aerospace sectors.
I advocated on environmental issues such as bio-fuels for WWF, writing the WWF strategy for the 2010 General Election.
As Programme Director for the £40m National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme (NATEP) 2013-2017 I helped deliver the Aerospace Growth Partnership industrial strategy for the UK aerospace sector. NATEP supports the competitiveness of the UK aerospace supply chain through the development of new technologies and capabilities. I successfully led the grant funding bid to InnovateUK for the continuation of the NATEP programme until 2020 with a further £8m of funding from the Aerospace Technology Institute.
