It is an absolute privilege to work with talented people, especially when their commitment to solving problems produces outstanding results. This video features Angela Hobbs, at the launch of Engineering Better Care at the Royal Academy of Engineers. Wilkinson Hall and The Care Machine are working on a new project for the Academy & University of Cambridge, to be launched in October 2020.
Wilkinson Hall is designing innovative products and services 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, available in September 2020. Supported by De Montfort University and their wonderful team.
Angela created her first company in the 90's designing international symposiums for Guy Zitter, MD of the UK's largest newspaper brand. He invited Angela to pitch for one project in competition with established consultancies. Her success resulted in 20 years of international projects and a C Suite client list. Angela applies the same successful values to Wilkinson Hall, collaboration, authenticity, uniqueness and honesty. Built on resilient foundations, business experience in product design and engineering, strategic thinking and an ongoing commitment to learning.
In 2008 during her MSc in Sustainability and Responsibility, Angela Hobbs researched internal & external barriers to women and discovered the glass trio - elevators, ceilings, and cliffs. Asking why, when the world and all its humans need innovation, inspiration and talent are we still struggling with issues of gender inequality? Twelve years later, although we are more informed thanks to Invisible Women author Caroline Criado progress has been painfully slow.
