I design and deliver technology based, business solutions for medium to large companies across a range of industries.

I offer the following services which have received much positive feedback:


1. Programme Assessment

Our assessment is ideal for correcting an in-flight programme which has significantly deviated from its intended course.


2. Business Analysis

Working with stakeholders to understand needs, development of robust business cases to support change, evaluation of requirements, documentation, development of user acceptance scripts, technical training and on-going support.


3. Executive Coaching

A personally tailored program where we will work together to ensure the outcomes of my earlier assessment or business analysis work are fully realised.

I'm a London based Business Analyst who has 20 years experience in delivering software projects and IT change programmes for medium to large companies across a range of industries. My specialty and personal interest is helping project sponsors fully realise the potential IT benefits in a manageable, measurable and well-planned way. I listen carefully and always provide a range of solutions which are aligned to key business drivers.

Who I Work With

I work with a wide variety of senior managers and executives who all want broadly the same thing out of their working life; being able to maintain and sustainably grow their business through the innovative use of online and digital technology whilst creating the right environment for high-performance teams to support these efforts.

People generally contact me when their previous attempts have not been met with the success they expected, and yet there remains great pressure to drive business change through continued IT delivery, on-time and on-budget. Generally speaking, you may be facing a similar story to most of my clients (which goes along like this):


  • You are a senior manager or executive who has their own budget.
  • You are under pressure to reduce costs and improve operations.
  • You would like to take advantage of online and digital opportunities.
  • You are responsible for a number of people who will be affected.
  • You are faced with complex decisions that have competing priorities.
  • You are unsure which direction is the correct way to go.
  • Your future success is dependent upon timely project delivery.

If any of one or more of these resonate with you, then please consider contacting me for a free consultation. We will discuss your current situation and I will provide my advice regarding what to do. This will include some simple and easy-to-follow recommendations that you can get started on straight away.

Most clients find the consultation extremely useful even if they decide not to take it any further. Provided without obligation and valuable in its own right.  Click here

Background

I'm a professional engineer by education who has worked as a self-employed software developer, business analyst, project manager and management consultant for the past 20 years. I have been independently in business and running my own company for most of that time, having experienced both good and bad economic times whilst continuing to help my clients.

I hold a first class honours degree from a top university (Curtin University of Western Australia) and graduated in the top 1% of all students academically, received 2 years intensive post-graduation training under the guidance of experienced engineers and have solved many difficult real world business and IT problems for a variety of people.

Previous clients I have enjoyed working with include:

  • Credit Suisse.
  • Barclays Capital.
  • Investec Private Bank.
  • State Street Bank and Trust.
  • Bluebay Asset Management.
  • Prudential.
  • Honeywell Software Centre.
  • Unisys.

Further study which I have undertaken includes qualifications in Business Analysis, Project Management, Procurement and Supply, Counselling Skills and Workplace Training and Assessment.

I will be surprised if you have a problem or issue that I haven't already seen elsewhere.
