Joining Dots is me, Sharon Richardson. The name came from my love of making connections across diverse fields of interest and applying them to explore the possibilities (and pitfalls) created when people, information and technology collide. To find out more, view Services and please get in touch!

Joining Dots was founded in 2006 following a 15-year career in the enterprise software industry, specialising in digital methods to improve productivity, communication and decision-making. In short:

image showing progression of technology trends and their impact

The technology gets smaller and its impact gets bigger. The focus remains constant: how new technology alters the intelligence – decision – action cycle that underpins performance and behaviour

Academic studies span cognitive, computer and data sciences combined with a practical interest in lessons from nature. Having recently completed a MSc in Smart Cities and Urban Analytics, I am conducting doctoral research at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), University College London. Topic: The Conscious City. Exploring the digitisation of urban environments made possible by the ‘internet of things’ (IoT) and its impact on spatial cognition

An experienced international speaker, I am available for conferences and discussion panels, and can provide comments for media purposes
