John is an economist with extensive experience of strategy development and monitoring, performance indicators, research commissioning, data analysis and reporting. Central to his experience is public policy and performance, whether working for research institutions or district/ county authorities. Latterly he has concentrated on economic development.
John helped provide a joint evidence-base for regional economic and spatial policy. This included reconciling official statistics with local reality, particularly for the East of England Forecasting Model; an enterprise he was involved with from inception. Related experience included chairing the East of England Regional Assembly's Labour Market and Economy Group (2007-2010) and advising the East of England LGA. John represented labour market statistics users on Government's Central-Local Information Partnership. His ability was not only recognised regionally and nationally but also by senior councillors who testified to his outstanding contribution.
John welcomes opportunities to work with clients who are seeking an enthusiastic partner in their quest for improvement.
Local policy makers wanting to understand the drivers of prosperity in their localities should profit from my expertise in local economic development. It is crucial to find a way through the morass of statistics available if you are to achieve a clear overview of the way the economy works 'at ground level'. Much of the output of the Office for National Statistics can only be put to good use by those practised in interrogating it in depth in partnership with other professionals with particular local knowledge. This 'bespoke' approach is central to the work of Prosperica Limited. So if you want someone to help you get a grip of the drivers of prosperity on your patch then please contact me, either by phone/ text or using the contact form on this site.
