Ian is a strategy consultant and focuses on advising early stage and growth companies on go-to-market, scaleup and commercialization strategies. He thrives on identifying needs and making connections for companies. His experience spans company leaders across multiple industries including consumer packaged goods, ocean technology, life sciences, data analytics and nutraceuticals. Prior to consulting, Ian was a founding team member at two technology start-ups. The rigorous analytical toolkit that Ian was given from his education at King’s serves him well in his approach to serving clients with complex and multi-layered problems. The pursuit of a strong question before a strong answer, a mark left on him by King’s, is something he pursues in his work each day. His advice to any new King’s student is simple; approach your first year with humility – this is the beginning to all learning. Expect to be challenged and embrace learning ideas that at first may conflict with your own.
