Ali Draycott

With 20+ years of strategy and innovation experience across governments, corporates, and startups, I am now focused on projects, not jobs. No challenge is too big or too small.


Areas I'm passionate about

As creative leaders with a shared commitment to quality, collaboration, and creativity, we're proud to pursue out most meaningful work and deliver the best every time.

For the last 4 years I have been the strategic advisor for the Dubai Future Council for Education and developed a number of new future focussed learning initiatives and propositions for the consideration of the Dubai Leadership


My proposition development work started on products, moved to policies, then to corporates and FTSE 100s, onto governments, global cities and now countries.

I work in a collaborative style and encourage clients to work from the future backwards (rather than now forwards) with a tireless focus on the audience (rather than the business) in the spirit of exploring what is possible, before then addressing what is plausible.

A member of the Neol Creative Leaders community

I believe in Neol because the best and brightest minds, be they clients or consultants, need the freedom to push boundaries while having the safety and support of their networks.
