Laura Peacock, Group Manager Innovation Hub, Oxfordshire County Council

Laura has been essential in leading development of an innovation service in the council and has the best can do attitude you will see in any council.
Over the past three years she has developed into a true leader inspiring a new team delivering innovation and building external partnerships across sectors.

Over that time the council has built up a leading reputation in tech areas like CAV, MaaS and new approach to data and analytics for transport. New digital transport services for customers have been delivered along with 10 innovate UK projects delivered or being delivered in cutting edge technology, such as DRIVEN AV fleet, One Transport Data market place, Cities 4 people, Catch digital travel planning, MultiCAV AV Pod as part of MaaS, V2G EVs as part of energy supply, are just some.

This has enabled OCC to have one of the largest Innovation services in the UK in Local Government and at no extra core funding cost.

More recently Laura has been our lead in developing the service beyond transport and environment to other services, delivering a pioneering project with partners and Amazon to test use of Echo Shows for adult social home care provision and an analytics platform approach for care delivery.

Laura is inspirational and full of enthusiasm without her leading much of our work we would, I’m sure, not be half as successful as we have been.
