Jarrod leads the Strategy Unit in helping Nesta design, deliver and adjust its strategy over the next 10 years.

With a background in strategy consulting, banking, new ventures and international development, Jarrod will help build and shape the Strategy Unit, supporting Nesta to deliver its strategic intent. 

Before joining Nesta, Jarrod worked as a strategy consultant, solving critical problems facing Fortune 500 companies across the Asia Pacific. He has spent time in Myanmar as an Advisor to the Head of UNESCO, working on education reform, environmental conservation and cultural heritage, and more recently successfully built and led an educational content venture for GradAustralia.

He began his career at Commonwealth Bank of Australia and holds a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Sydney. 

When not strategising, you can find Jarrod at the beach, on the football pitch or laughing too hard at bad puns.
