Joining Dots was founded by me, Sharon Richardson. The name comes from a passion for making connections between people, information and technology, discovering possibilities and exploring their potential. Whilst the focus is on emerging technologies, the interest is in what they enable. To find out more, please view Services

Joining Dots was launched in 2006 as an independent research and consulting practice. It followed a 15-year career in the IT industry that started with designing pre-Internet knowledge management systems and led to working for Microsoft as the European lead for ‘information work’ technology specialists, advising some of Microsoft’s largest customers, providing feedback to product groups and presenting at executive briefings. The technology keeps getting smaller and its impact gets bigger. The focus remains constant: Disruptions to the intelligence – decision – action cycle that underpins the performance and behaviour of all human-centred systems

In addition to industry experience, academic qualifications span cognitive, computer and data sciences. In 2015, I completed a MSc in Smart Cities and Urban Analytics that resulted in a national award-winning thesis and am currently conducting doctoral research at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), University College London

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