Ian is the owner and founder of Thinkingitbetter Ltd, and is a passionate and highly engaging speaker.
Ian’s background is working in industrial and project environments for over 25 years, holding a range of senior roles including Head of Project and Programme Management for Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace; working to set up and develop the project management capability of a German owned SME; Interim Managing Directorship; modifying and subsequently managing operations facilities in low volume specialist vehicle production; Operations Management for a manufacturer of capital CNC equipment – and all of these in a range of different markets – subcontract sector, shoe making machinery, “off road” material handling vehicles, aerospace.
Ian founded Thinkingitbetter in 2012. Ian’s belief that people are the most vital resource in any organisation, and the lack of availability of ‘mindset’ education for those in industry lead to the launch of the business.
With over 30 years of industrial experience, matched with a sound understanding and practice of well established psychology, the business has successfully worked with a number of large ‘blue chip’ companies as well as smaller businesses and individuals to deliver ‘blended’ behavioural and technical interventions that have transformed performance.
