Innovation Future Specialist
Hello, my name is Adam Bostock.
Thank you for visiting this site. I am sure that if you take a look around this site, and subscribe to its services, you will learn something new, something interesting, and something useful. I can say this with confidence as most of my life has focused on innovation, in all of its forms. This site gives you the benefits of my extensive knowledge, practical experience, and clear understanding of innovation. The site also provides the findings of on-going global research, and a window into the future.
I am able to communicate effectively with people in any role and any type of organisation. In my former roles (as a consultant, manager, business owner, and developer of various innovations) I have worked with people at all levels, in many types of organisation. So whether you are a CEO, executive, senior or middle manager, technical specialist, expert, scientist, or any other role, you are welcome.
I use clear and concise language; no waffle, padding, or unnecessary jargon. This approach works well with both corporate bodies, small and medium sized enterprises, public sector bodies, and any other type of organisation. There is just one piece of jargon that needs to be busted. Surprisingly, when I ask people "do you know what innovation is?" they say "no". So, that is why you will see on the home page that there is a free, short, online, course called "What is Innovation?" [it only takes a few minutes, and includes some fantastic examples and benefits].
In science, technology and the environment, I have a good understanding of every aspect and would be very interested to work with people in those sectors. This also includes coming up with bright ideas and innovative solutions. Equally, I have a clear understanding of how these areas may develop in the future [some call this "futurology", "futurism" or being a "futurist"].
You can quickly gain further unique benefits from the fact that I provide a clear and concise approach to the development of innovation policies and strategies. This, along with an excellent technical understanding, is a strong unique selling point.
I am happy to work with anyone who is in a position to make innovation happen. For me, you only need one extra magical ingredient and that is ... Self Motivation!
I have formal qualifications in science (BSc Honours in physics), the environment (PhD in traffic pollution), adult teaching, and coaching.
My career includes several "claims to fame" :
» Development of the first prototype for voice mail (in the UK)
» Automation of factories across the world, including the largest food corporation in the world
» Pioneering world-wide innovations in smart transport technologies and related information systems
» Development of pan-European advanced transport telematics strategies
» Development of the most advanced road traffic emissions model in the world
» A unique approach to environmental improvements via innovative transport strategies and technologies
» Information and IT manager at the best further education college in the UK (as then rated by independent inspection)
» Development of the first HND E-Business course in the UK
» Almost became a "dot-com millionaire", well almost
I have also spent a significant amount of time developing e-learning (or online learning) resources for further and higher education [colleges and universities].
