About James

I have worked across all aspects of communications, marketing and engagement in the higher education sector, supporting leadership teams at Staffordshire University, Birmingham City University and The University of Manchester. All have shared similar commitments – to support the economic and social development of their respective city-regions through applied research, innovation and creating the talent and leaders needed to make positive change happen. Most recently I have been an advocate of the ‘Manchester Model’ of innovation associated with the University’s world-class advanced materials portfolio – including the pioneering ecosystem that brings academic, civic and business leaders together to commercialise graphene.
