Mr Charles Boulton

Principal at Charles Boulton Ltd

Technology Strategy Consultant

Charles Boulton has been a career consultant for more than 25 years, most of them in an independent capacity. He started in contract design and development with Cambridge Consultants Ltd before joining Arthur D Little Inc in Brussels working for clients all over the world in technology strategy and product development management. Returning to the UK in 1991 he established my business as an independent, focusing on innovation, technology management and enabling change. Working across many different industries, he has worked with organisations of all sizes, from start-ups to multinationals, in the public, private and non-profit sectors. He has helped clients to gain clarity about their aspirations, help them to develop the capabilities, processes and organisational culture to deliver, and then facilitate the change to make it happen. He describes his approach as coaching as much as consulting because on his focus on results and not upon reports.

He also works with a loose network of other independent practitioners and small companies who bring a broad range of skills, experience and insight in marketing, intellectual property strategy and product development.

His work in based on three general areas

  • Technology Management: Managing technology and the capabilities it offers, strategically, purposefully and effectively
  • Innovation Coaching: Improving effectiveness in steering and delivering innovation, continuously
  • Change Facilitation: Enabling and facilitating change by thoughtful and timely support
