About me

My primary skill is as an IT Consultant/Architect. I work across multiple technical disciplines to deliver IT transformation projects such as IT Financial Management, outsourcing or technology transformation programmes. I am accustomed to working with customers at all levels in order to understand, challenge and advise on how best to fulfil the needs of the business through application of Information Technology.

My experience in different technical disciplines enables me to identify complex interdependencies across such broad-ranging projects, and to create, define and manage overall solution design activity in order to bring such programmes to a successful conclusion. I work to research and maintain my knowledge of leading technologies, the cost/benefit balance for differing requirements, and the consequent factors affecting the potential for successful deployment and integration into a business.

I also have significant experience in capability assessment, process development and strategic planning, guiding IT organisations to achieve Service Management excellence across all Information Technology disciplines.

My skills have been gained over many years - for 20 years as an IT consultant, and 10 years in an operational role prior to that.

I have also previously worked as a town councillor, gaining general experience of local government, and additionally sitting on the council's planning committee.

What am I looking for

I am seeking a Trustee role, primarily in charities that have an active interest in progressing their engagement with regard to a Digital Strategy and the resultant supporting IT organisation that will be required.
