Stephen heads up the innovation function at SAP in the UK where he works with organizations to improve performance and find new markets through the use of digital technology and design thinking. From helping a utility company use Machine Learning to improve it’s response to gas leaks to helping a professional services firm create new digital products in the cloud, Stephen has always been led by a sense of using technology to improve the lives of people. After watching the BBC’s Blue Planet II on the impact of plastic waste, he made a commitment to his family to act and has since led SAP’s global initiative to help reduce and eliminate plastic waste from the supply chain. Stephen is a keen cross-fitter and enjoys time walking or skiing in the mountains with his family.
