About George

I work in the publishing industry. My experience covers corporate and digital strategy, commercial and business development, operations and marketing. I hold an MBA (with distinction) from Cass Business School, where I researched my dissertation on corporate venture capital and the interaction between established businesses and startups. Practical experience in this area includes acting as an advisor to the REACT Creative Economy Hub and as a startup mentor for R/GA Ventures. I’m also a member of the advisory board for the Ambient Literature project, an alumnus of the Yale Publishing Course, a Fellow of the RSA and a Liveryman of the Stationers Company.

I publish a weekly email newsletter called Inflight Engineering, which covers corporate development, innovation and venturing. You can find out more, including why it’s called that, and sign up here.

I am a regular and highly acclaimed speaker at conferences and events around the world, speaking on publishing, media, digital strategy, innovation and organisational change. If you are interested in finding out more or inviting me to speak, please email me.
