Kurtis Johnson

Hello, I'm a digital strategist/tinkerer/doer interested in the ever-connected networked world, agile service design and trying to creatively solve business problems with technology.

I work in local government for Leicestershire County Council 1, leading the digital services team. Previously I was part of the Futures Directorate at Orbit Group 2, in the digital team at Cogent Elliott 3, Innovation R&D Officer at International development charity Practical Action 4 & Graduate Trainee at Dare London 5.
