He has managed businesses, product and service lines, budgets and crises; raised capital and secured grant funding; he has worked with boards and anxious shareholders; and advised many clients on various business strategies and tactics.

Mitch has overseen university partnerships, supplier relationships, trademark & patent portfolios and instigated IP infringement actions and court proceedings. He is passionate about innovation and the role R&D plays, especially in small to medium enterprises, and where improving the lives and experiences of end-users and customers is the outcome. His involvement in the process of innovation execution, implementation and commercialisation (including failures) have led to valuable business lessons.

Mitch is a keen student of the latest innovation thinking and its application in real-world settings. Together with his own experiences over the last several years he is always looking for ways in which this emerging knowledge can be relevantly tested and applied to clients for their benefit.
