My research focuses on corporate social responsibility (CSR) in SMEs (Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises) in developing countries. Employing a qualitative approach, I investigate CSR practices of SMEs from a multi-level perspective. I highlight the use of social capital for creating competitive advantage through CSR. My research is interdisciplinary at the interface of strategy and entrepreneurship and contributes to the field by demonstrating the situated and contextual dynamics of CSR in SMEs in emerging markets. By presenting my work at national and international conferences and publishing, I have started to establish a sound academic profile and international networks. My teaching focuses on the process of entrepreneurship from multiple bottom-line perspectives, social enterprises, and social innovation, sustainability and sustainable entrepreneurship, digital entrepreneurship, sharing economy, circular economy, and responsible leadership and management.

The list is endless, but we have specialists for most companies' needs. Our mission is to empower companies with the talent, knowledge and resources needed to make impactful sustainability decisions.



My foundational entrepreneurial experience comes from SupplyCompass, a B2B SaaS platform I co-founded solving product development and supply chain management for fashion and retail businesses and their supply chains. We raised £2.5m in Venture Capital funding (Episode 1, Ascension & Angels) and grew the team to 30 across the UK and India. This venture was not just about streamlining operations but also about instilling sustainable practices within the industry. I lived and worked in India full-time for 2 years and on and off for 5, visiting over 300 factories which was one of the most fulfilling and enlightening experiences of my career.



After SupplyCompass I honed my skills as a Fractional Exec/Consultant/Advisor to companies in the UK, US, Europe & Asia where I guided B2B & B2C startups and scale-ups in refining their Go-To-Market strategies. My focus was on building optimised processes and teams across Operations, Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success.



With a background in Civil Engineering and being a Chartered Surveyor in Project Management, my career has been a blend of technical expertise and creative problem-solving. My industry experience spans across diverse sectors, including Supply Chain, Fashion, E-commerce, Retail, Sustainability, and more, embracing technologies like AI and SalesTech.

As an Executive in Residence (EIR) at the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI), I have the opportunity to work closely with startup founders in scaling their businesses. Guiding them through our various programs, including the Founders Business Accelerator and the Innovator Program, I provided strategic coaching and support in areas such as strategy, sales, marketing, leadership, and finance. I also played a crucial role in reviewing new applications and identifying potential candidates for our Incubation and Market Access Program.

Ryan Tubbs

In our rapidly shifting landscape, the "normal" of work has been redefined. In fact, with the classic definition of "normal" - conforming to a standard, typical, or expected - there is and will be no more normal of work. My stint at Microsoft, surrounded by tech luminaries, served as a potent reminder of the delicate balance between our human need for structure and the ever-blurring lines of innovation and human ambition. From navigating the complexities of tech behemoths to the dynamism of startups, I feel I've been at the epicenter of transformative work experiences.



Today, as the co-founder and resident change management specialist at BillionMinds, I am part of a mission greater than any single role: to help individuals across the globe master the new normal of work. With distributed workplaces becoming commonplace, we find ourselves navigating more unstructured and ambiguous terrains than ever before. This new reality demands a fresh set of skills.



BillionMinds isn't just another platform—it's a culmination of 3 years of intensive research into what makes individuals excel in fluid work environments. Combining the scientific principles of experiential learning and organizational change management, we aim to embed sustainable modern work soft skills, integrating seamlessly into daily workflow, all in just a few minutes each day. Our approach? It isn't about teaching a monolithic "right way," but rather assisting people in uncovering the methods, habits, and routines that resonate with their neurodiversity while aligning with team, company, and family norms.



Every human interaction is a gift, and I'm here to learn with you and from you.
