Public Policy Senior Analyst, Uber
Continuing Policy Fellow, Centre for Science and Policy
Guy is Head of Driver Public Policy at Uber, in the central public policy team in San Francisco. Functioning a little like an internal think-tank, part of the team's remit is to work with academics and collaborate on research. Guy has a global remit, and works on policy issues relating to drivers and (the future of) work. Updates from his team are published on Uber's Medium blog 'Under the Hood'.
Guy was previously the Executive Director of Coadec (The Coalition for a Digital Economy), a non-profit advocacy group that campaigns for policies to support digital startups in the UK. He wrote The Startup Manifesto, which was backed by over 200 startup founders and investors, and is also a contributor to Tech City News, CityAM and other publications on tech policy.
Before that Guy worked in government as a Special Adviser to the Secretaries of State at the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). He has also worked in the Conservative Research Department, and as an economic adviser to then Shadow Chancellor, George Osborne MP.
Guy read Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University.
