Dr Nicola Watts


C4 Impact

Nicola’s career spans more than 20 countries, acting as a changemaker across diverse industry sectors and, more recently ,in the field of‘regional development’.She is a firm believer that there is little room for ‘business as usual’ and that collaboration, co-innovation,capability-building, and connections are key to addressing today’s wicked problems,and building new forms of prosperity and resilient futures. At the heart of this is breaking down siloes and fragmented ways of working to unleash the full potential within innovation ecosystems. Nicola brings representatives of government, industry, knowledge institutions and community together around a shared sense of purpose and helps them navigate systemic complexity for achieving collective impact and shared value. Recognising personal transformation as integral to any organisational or systemic change, Nicola also facilitates‘collective leadership’capability-building.An active member of TCI Network ,the leading global network of people and organisations working in clusters and innovation ecosystems around the globe, Nicola also serves on the management committee of the TCI Oceania chapter.
