Work history

About me

I have 35 years of experience in the technology sector working with private and public sector organisations delivering their business services and strategy. I performed the role of CEO and managed the business strategy and direction of my own organisation.  I was responsible for running the daily services and sales operation of an £850M  turnover business. I was accountable for the financial performance of the company coupled with all other aspects that are involved with managing a business. eg Compliance, Governance, Commercial Human Resources, Marketing etc.

I developed a strong leadership team that I managed and mentored in their careers.

My role encompassed setting the business strategy and in conjunction with organic growth, I worked on many acquisitions. Following the acquisition, I developed the strategy and restructured the businesses, and led them to become profit-making organiations through the initiatives we implemented.

What am I looking for

I am comfortable working in the public and private sectors based on the exposure my career afforded me. I currently work on a voluntary basis within the education and sports sectors, providing my experience in technology and business challenges. This entails completing business tasks coupled with engaging on human resources panels, developing websites, and managing those sites and delivering the IT strategy.

I am now able to offer further time to organisations from any sector to assist in their business challenges as my skills are transferable across most industries.
