Ian Wigston is a co-founder of Bright Field Consulting. Originally a banker, Ian developed and built one of the first Innovation Units in Europe for Barclays. He has been working as an independent consultant for 20 years.
He has specialised in education for most of that time, and was inspired to establish Bright Field having established a reputation for originality and innovation across a range of client projects. These have included the DfES Innovation Unit, Odyssey Charter School, the Learning Schools Trust and Woodard Corporation.
As part of a team, Ian conceived the idea for a young persons predisposition measure and in tandem with the Academic Magician Professor Todd Landman designed and developed a programme for schools combining behavioural feedback and magic. He has since worked with the author and consultant Richard Gerver and opera director Karen Gillingham on programmes in which students develop their entrepreneurial potential and their understanding of character and identity.
Ian has a BA(Econ) from Nottingham University, an MBA from Henley Management College and is a Fellow of the School for Social Entrepreneurs. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2005.
