Episode 225 Deep Dive: Toby Jones | Discussing a Game-Changing Approach to Private and Public Sector Collaboration
In this episode, we dive deep into the ACE initiative, and how it acts as a facilitator for the public sector, encouraging diversity and collaboration among businesses to deliver the required outcomes. Toby shares how the platform has changed the dynamic with larger companies, leading to adaptations and a shift towards acquiring smaller companies for innovation. We also explore the impact of ACE on smaller businesses, the importance of protecting intellectual property, and the role of collaborations between businesses, academia, and mission customers in addressing shared problems and creating commercial opportunities. Toby also takes us on a journey from the UK to Australia, discussing the opportunities for collaboration and knowledge exchange between countries and the plans to expand ACE’s platform overseas.

He brings experience from the national security and resilience sector, combined with public policy development including legislation for investigatory powers and telecommunications regulation and compliance.
