My research interests and my work experience revolve around exploring new kinds of leadership and collaboration that can bring about change and social innovation. I am particularly interested in the ways that new technologies influence the nature of collaborative relationships across sectors.
The idea that technology holds the potential to transform development and humanitarian work, as well as the activities of commercial organizations, has given rise to the notion of “Techvelopment.” In my research, I am exploring the potential of Techvelopment to foster new kinds of leadership and collaboration that can bring about social innovation and change.
I hold an MsC in Leadership and Management studies from CBS, and have worked for many years in global companies, tech startups and media companies. I have first-hand experience developing networks, new forms of collaboration and new perspectives on leadership as sources of innovation, creativity and change. Because I enjoy speaking and facilitating dialogue on these issues, I co-founded the company Hyperro. Hyperro specializes in enabling new forms of collaboration within organizational groups in order to help create adaptive spaces for creativity, reflection and the emergence of new ideas and solutions.
