About me

Ella Barrington (she/her) is an award-winning business, project and operations director.

I spend my time making motorsport and mobility a better place for people and planet. I specialise in commercial strategy and implementation, project management and operations.

An advocate for diversity and inclusion in STEM, I am also an active volunteer and engaging speaker for hire.

I gained a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Leeds, and then returned to Oxfordshire to study for a Masters of Science in Racing Engine Design at Oxford Brookes University. I have since joined the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics at my local alma mater as an Associate Lecturer. If I can explain business and management stuff to hungover students, I can probably explain it pretty well!

I'm currently studying part-time on the Global MBA programme at Oxford Brookes University Business School. I'm already a qualified PRINCE2® Project Management Practitioner. PRINCE2®, originally developed by the UK Government, is one of the world's leading project management methodologies.

I want to dispel the myth that technical things can only be understood by people who are good at maths. And that engineers don’t “do people”.

In 2022, I become a Fellow of The royal society for arts, manufactures and commerce (The RSA). I am also a senior judge for the annual Institution of Mechanical Engineers Formula Student competition, specialising in the business plan and presentation round.

If I sound like your kinda woman, you can find out more about what I think and talk about, or just get in touch...
