Liz O'Driscoll

Head of Innovation

I joined Civica from Global City Futures where I delivered the Net Zero Exeter 2030 Plan for Exeter City Council and defined a new approach to procurement of innovation for Devon and Cornwall Police. Prior to that I worked for BAE Systems. I am a chartered engineer with over 15 years experience of working in systems engineering, open innovation and change management for the public, private and third sector.

My passion is finding solutions to wicked problems; integrating new processes and technologies to deliver social and commercial value.

Within Civica, my role is to drive innovation across the global business and help meet our objective of being recognised as an innovation leader for delivery of public services. I am engaging with our colleagues and customers to create a thriving innovation culture and to inspire development of the next generation of products around data, automation and new technologies and devices.

The buzz within the organisation is clearly evident, even though we are all working remotely. I know that together we are going to achieve incredible impact.
