Innovation consultancy, InnovationXchange (IXC), welcomes Soulla Stylianou to the team as Innovation Research Investigator.
Soulla comes to IXC with over 20 years’ experience in IT gained within immersive visualisation technology (Daden Ltd), land & property consultancy (TerraQuest), and utilities (Severn Trent Water’s IT division). Daden’s technologies include immersive learning and training systems, built environment visualisations, virtual agents (chatbots) and data visualisations for clients within the private sector, government, education, public safety, health and academia. TerraQuest delivers information management solutions for property acquisition and development professionals including local authorities and regeneration agencies, transport, utilities, property developers, and government bodies.
Soulla has also worked in the steel industry, facilities management (serving the defence, retail, food & FMCG sectors), publishing (digital and print), and as a Systems Analyst contractor working out of the European Council in Brussels. In addition, Soulla was a founding member of a networking organisation for internet entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, and committee member of the Midlands chapter of the then British Association of Communicators in Business.
With a degree in Information Science, security cleared and bilingual, Soulla epitomises the cross-sector, multi-disciplinary talent and technological savvy valued at IXC. Caroline Bishop, Managing Director of IXC, is “delighted that IXC have been able to attract Soulla, such a well-qualified and able individual to come and join the team. And as expected, she has already started to make a significant contribution to our work.”
Soulla believes IXC is the next natural step for her career to date: “The calibre of people at IXC, and their work, excited and interested me. After many years working in different roles within a variety of industries and market sectors, working at IXC will give me the opportunity to make use of the knowledge and experiences I had gained whilst going back to my roots and using the skills I learnt when I qualified as an Information Scientist all those years ago! From the onset I have felt very much part of the IXC team and I am looking forward to contributing to their continuing success.”
