I am a senior I.T. consultant with over 30 years experience in the I.T. industry. My early career was spent in the UK, working in roles utilising my Physics degree, prior to commencing in I.T. as a Programmer for British Airways. I subsequently moved into consultancy as a Business Analyst, acquiring an MSc. degree in Business Systems Analysis and Design, and then into project management. I have since been responsible for the successful delivery of major, multi-million dollar projects for some of the largest organisations in New Zealand and the UK.
Since early 2001, I have specialised in portfolio, programme and project management (P3M), with a particular emphasis on the setting up and running of PMOs, combining best-practice methods with supporting portfolio management software to provide effective management and governance of I.T. project portfolios. I also provide project management training and mentoring to varied clients, tailored according to specific requirements.
