Work history

About me

An inspirational leader with outstanding skills in strategy development, governance, change management and people management. I am looking for new opportunities to apply these skills to the development of charities, either as a Board Member or on a project basis.

I am passionate about bringing teams together, developing teams to drive outcomes, with a successful track record in the Private Sector. 

I have over 30 years of experience in leading Information Technology, Digital, People, Process and Organisational Change. I can help in governance, strategy, risk, regulations, digital and information technology strategy and implementation, change management, project and programme delivery design and assurance, risk management, mentoring. My experience spans Financial Services - Insurance, Pensions, Banking as well as Consumer Goods, Biotechnology, Telecomms, Manufacturing and Utilities. 

I've recently built and led a team of technology volunteers from Royal London in partnership with the Turn2us Charity to design, build and launch a new digital campaigning tool. 

I have implemented Financial Controls, Risk Frameworks and Data Governance frameworks all of which involve translating complex regulations into requirements, assessing risk appetite and building consensus for change.

 

 

What am I looking for

I am seeking Trustee, Mentoring or project-based roles. I can bring an adaptive and open style, an innovative mindset and a wealth of experience. I'm a team player, working best when I am part of a group with differing insights, perspectives and approaches.

Fundamentally I want to find organisations that are doing important work and where I can make a difference.
