IT, Digital & Culture

Welcome to my site.

I am currently leading a digital transformation programme in local government in the UK. The ambitious program intends to massively simplify the IT provision and consolidation onto a single cloud based platform. This programme will also deliver sweeping process and culture change within the council, enabling staff, customers and residents to get the most from the authority. Workflow and business process optimisation as well as staff cultural transformation will form the backbone of the 18-month programme. When the team and I have finished the IT systems will be an enabler for the business rather than a traditional IT overhead.

Personally, I am a management professional with a wide range of technical and solution design skills, in public, private and 3rd sector organisations. A proven track record in delivering solutions for a variety of technical business issues including specialties in:

  • Culture and “hearts and minds” transformation
  • A passionate leader with experience in staff management and transformation, all areas of project management including planning, troubleshooting and delivering, budget management and documentation.
  • Proprietary and Opensource software
  • Virtualisation & Cloud Technologies

Driven by getting the best solution for organisational need whilst understanding stakeholders need. This can include researching the market, finding innovative cost saving new products, and providing and supporting the latest, cutting edge technology.

Strong business framework skills around service delivery, design, change and service management via various best practices.
