About me

Hi, my name is Paul Russell and I work as a Business Development Leader for IBM. I help customers understand how technology ( I focus on workplaces, smart buildings and cities ) can help achieve transformation. I am a design thinking practitioner which is a skill I have developed over my career ( before IBM I worked in electronics and construction & engineering industries). By focusing on diverse (design ) thinking I can encourage people to look for blind spots in their approach to solving problems which can help them challenge bias in their organisation. With a combination of a technology background reaching back 30 years and a senior leadership role managing diverse teams and complex issues, I believe I can help Blix members uncover a great way to develop an open mindset.

Diverse thinking helps find those blind spots that matter most

I gear my sessions to people who are curious about thinking differently whether they are in a startup mindset or looking for new job opportuntities. I love sharing my real world examples to help people develop an inquiring approach to learn more and I can hep pinpoint resources to help them further.
