About Us

Behind The Name

image3

Wilkinson Hall is named after two inspiring women.  Mary Stacey Wilkinson was my maternal grandmother, she built a very successful hotel business, raised two children and maintained an amazing sense of humour, while my grandfather travelled the world playing international cricket. 


Her daughter, Christine Hall had a strong entrepreneurial spirit and her drive and resilience enabled her to succeed in a highly competitive environment. 



Out Of Office

I created my first  company in the '90's designing high profile international events.  On the search for clients, I met  Guy Zitter,  MD of the UK's largest newspaper brand.  He invited me to pitch for one project which resulted  in 20 years of international consultancy . Guy was an  amazing client, challenging, but always fair and direct. 


That  encounter transformed my business and taught me the importance of being proactive, getting out of the office and  building long term client relationships.

Collaborative Design

ThinkStation–was a brilliant illustration of the benefits of collaboration and shared thinking.  Run by Design Council, ThinkStation built on their work with Network Rail to help develop their Principles of Good Design, supporting the organisation to be a more customer-focused, service-driven organisation that puts passengers first.  Learning opportunities enhance  talent attraction strategies and support the development of new innovation abilities in your employees. Attracting and retaining talent is a key  business challenge and we design  specialist campaigns to build high performance teams.



FemTech Innovation

Wilkinson Hall is designing innovative products and services positioned  in the FemTech industry, a subset of apps and gadgets geared at enhancing women’s well-being. Technology catering to women's health hasn't historically received much venture capital funding—but that's starting to change.We are delighted to be working with Oxford Computer Consultants,  to create CarriMe, which will be available in March 2020.  If you would like to hear more, please contact us.  We are supported by De Montfort University and their wonderful team. 



Entrepreneurship

Having the opportunity  to work with emerging entrepreneurs is one of our favourite activities.  This January we worked with  The Foundry, Oxford Sciences Innovation (OSI) and Oxford University Innovation (OUI) on the second StEP scheme to engage groups of student entrepreneurs in creating new spinouts.  OUI made University IP available to student groups for the purpose of putting together investable business cases.  The programme is now in the development stage and will complete in March 2020. Results to follow. What an excellent initiative.
