Joining Dots is me, Sharon Richardson. The name came from my interest in the possibilities (and pitfalls) created when people, information and technology collide, with a particular interest in how access to information affects human decision-making and behaviour. To find out more, view the portfolio 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
