Today, the role of innovation in creating sustainable competitive advantage is more important than ever. Innovative products and services solve problems in non-intuitive ways, deliver unique value to customers and create market demand. Over the course of my career, I have delivered many groundbreaking products including consumer electronics, digital music solutions, team collaboration and communication tools, and entertainment products.
- Patents – I have two patents issued for Sonicare and one for Swan Island Networks. I’ve have applied for three more and am working on an additional two.
- Technical Aptitude – I have demonstrated an innate ability to assess and leverage technology that allows me to improve product architecture, accelerate development, simplify integration and identify potential partnerships.
- Prototypes – By developing physical mock-ups, wire-frames and rapid prototypes I have helped prove product concepts, solicit early feedback to influence the design, and communicate business value.
- Communication – It’s not enough to have a great product idea. You have to convince others of its value and uniqueness to build support and marshal resources to drive development and delivery.
