Our teamDallas gibb
For over 20 years I worked in the Agricultural Research and Development Industry, initially in sales for multinational companies and then as an extension officer in the Cotton Industry. As an extension officer I was responsible for taking the great research and ideas out into the field to help producers adopt better work practices and farming methods to improve production and yield while lessening the impact on the environment.
As the Research Program Manager for Biotechnology, Water Management and Value Adding, and Manager of Intellectual Property with the Cotton Research and Development Corporation I further developed my skills in Intellectual Property Management by undertaking further University study to attain a Masters in Law Industrial Property (Intellectual Property) at the University of Technology Sydney.
In 1995 I became the National Extension Manager with the Cotton Cooperative Research Centre for Sustainable Cotton Production and Director of the Centre of Excellence for Cotton, Pulse and Oil Seed Improvement. It was through this position that I had a greater role managing researchers and their innovative and novel ideas and linking them with partners who could take their products into the market place. In this position I was responsible for over 60 research and technical staff, managing projects with the value in excess of $10 million dollars.
Since 2008 I have worked with a wide variety of Industry and State bodies, helping them train their staff and develop their own IP registers so they can track and manage their IP Assets more effectively.
I have also worked with a number of smaller individual clients who needed someone to help them assess their product or idea, find a market for their product and then find strategic partners to get their product into the market place.
Much of my current work centres on helping Researchers and Industry protect their ideas and innovations and then get them into the market where they could help solve a problem for their industry. We also assist small to medium business and innovators to protect and benefit from their ideas, inventions and products by assisting them to understand the life cycle of a concept to market place .
