How we helped

About the organisation
Qdot is a University of Oxford spin-out that develops heat transfer technology for the most challenging thermal environments. It is currently working on generating power from nuclear fusion as an ideal solution to the help the transition from a fossil-fuel based society to an electric one in a green manner; it is also developing a battery thermal management system for ground and air electrical vehicle batteries that will answer the biggest issues standing in the way of the mass uptake of electric vehicles, which are range anxiety, charge speed and cost.

The challenge
Qdot is working at the cutting edge of high-technology industries. As a young company, it needs to grow in a controlled and systematic way while moving from research to product development and delivery.  

The role of Penleaf
Graham has taken up the role of an Advisory Board Member to Qdot, which will include a consulting service to help develop a high-level technology and product strategy.

'Jenny brings great insight and clarity to any project or programme she is working on. She is able to engage and collaborate across organisations and systems, and lead with clear values and integrity. An articulate communicator and a valued colleague, Jenny brings depth, knowledge, experience and most importantly compassion and humanity to everything she does.’

‘Jenny has the rare skill of being able to distil down difficult and complex matters into logical and succinct reports, so that I always feel I have enough information to allow me to question, debate and decide what to do. The fact she does all the above with good humour and grace is just the icing on the cake.’

Peter Gibbons Chief Security Officer, Network Rail

The ethics and values Graham brought to Network Rail represented a clear change to a more compassionate and engaged senior team, which really helped me develop our capability in my particular area of the business.

Graham is one of the most collaborative, authentic, approachable, and inspiring leaders I have met. I am grateful that I had the chance to work with him.

General Counsel

I have huge respect and admiration for Graham. Definitely the first time in my 12 years I found an exec to be completely approachable and treat everyone the same.
