About Adrian Nixon

Adrian Nixon is a Senior Editor at InvestorIntel. He began his career as a scientist and is a Chartered Chemist and Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry. As a scientist and manager he worked for an international chemicals company in Technical Service then R&D where he created several patents. He moved in to management after an MBA at the University of Bradford (UK) then changed career to work for one of the leading global consulting companies. In 2002 Adrian established Nixor Limited; which works with international clients to create clarity from complexity. He specialises in strategic facilitation, helping top management plan and prepare for the future. Adrian has a particular interest in graphene technology and is an advisory board member of the National Graphene Association (NGA) in the USA. He is also the co-founder and facilitator of the Foresight Forum. This is an ongoing not-for-profit forum. It is a discreet place where CEOs, chairs and top management of private, public and third sector organisations can identify and evaluate emerging technology and economic trends. This future orientated work means far more insights are discovered than are used. This un-used knowledge is usually longer term in nature and is normally regarded as sweepings from the cutting room floor. Rather than abandon this material, Adrian collects the more interesting trends together and shares the findings at speaking events and authoring blogs and books.
