I work collaboratively as a private contractor and ‘problem solver’ for many organisations, including S&P500 and FTSE100, tech firms, various Governments, and many specialist public and private organisations.

Morgan, Deutsche Bank, ING, and many other firms across market sectors, world banks and stock exchanges.
I am a Fellow of the British Computer Society (FBCS), and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) where I mentor, coach and contribute to the development of others. I have a very long successful track record and, have managed a running total of over $5 billion in budgets since 1990. I am certified technically and commercially (MBA FBCS FRSA MAPM PgMP PMP PRINCE2 MSP Agile CCIE CCSP CDCNDS CCDA CCNA CIOSS IPS CSND SCSP SCSE SCA SCSN-E CTP ICSD SCPM CEH CISSP CISO NSA IAM/IEM).

I help organisations and teams to rapidly deliver complex strategic change successfully. I specialise in advising best-practice and risk-managed deployment of cutting-edge technology, operational process enhancement, service improvement, team building of small or very large teams, and personal performance coaching. I add massive value by quickly understanding any strategic change requirements and translating them into executable solutions, from start-up to mature.
I have helped Media, TV, Managed Service, Governments and others to improve operational processes by analysing processes and procedures to refine and improve output from departments, teams and individuals. We are jointly looking for just the right amount of process to deliver what is required and no more than that. Process re-engineering can lead to re-tasking of experienced staff, cost-saving by removing wasteful process steps and taking customer happiness levels and lead-times to amazing new levels! For example, I led Colt (telecom) to a World Communications Award 3 years in a row for customer experience.
Most projects and programmes are poorly managed due to failing governance, immature process or un-skilled staff. I am able to refine organisational and programme-level governance, ensure best practice is applied correctly, by the people performing the critical work, and ensure that plans are professionally audited, enhanced and executable by those that need to work them. I have been well-trained in the UK and US from organisations
