Over 30 years working in the IT and digital project management business.
I started out as a software programmer and analyst working in the UK, Europe and North America. After a few years programming I became a project manager and implemented large back office systems for clients.
In 1997 I became a freelance consultant and founded an internet startup. After a few years of trading, the startup formed a business partnership with the UK’s leading consumer magazine publisher.
As a freelance consultant my clients range from one man startups to global corporations and I’m pleased to have gained experience from working with the very large and the very small.
In 2007 I studied to become a business analyst. I also helped 100s of my client’s staff to adopt new project management and business analysis practices. I am a qualified Business Analyst, Agile and Prince2 project management practitioner.
I'm currently working on a start-up venture and as a freelance consultant.
