“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn” ​(Benjamin Franklin)

A professional who is genuinely motivated to connect the dots – across people/process/technology built on 20 years of experience working client side and supplier side – adding value where I can.

The depth of my experience enables me to exert a rapid and sustainable impact in the areas of:

+ IT cost reduction, insourcing and outsourcing analysis and vendor negotiation

+ IT strategy development, organisation and governance design and full IT & Digital transformation

+ IT due diligence, carve-out, M&A, integration planning and execution

+ IT transformation, change management and interim IT leadership roles

+ IT crisis management, governance, assurance and project turnaround

By thinking and acting first and foremost as a business performance improvement specialist, I increase the value that IT (beyond just technology i.e. digital, IoT, machine learning & AI) can add to a client’s business and the speed at which the client’s business can operate.
