Change leadership practitioner, author and speaker
I have two preoccupations:
1. Helping organisations to deliver complex, usually IT-enabled, change.
2. Helping 30-something professionals to find a job you love.
The underlying philosophy that binds these two together is the belief that today's organisations are more like ecosystems than they are like machines. So, whether it's organisational or personal change, your chances of success will be greater if you approach change like a gardener not a mechanic.
With respect to organisational change, I have been helping businesses to deliver strategic change projects and programs for over 20 years. My roles have ranged from being the business leader who drives the change, through to being a trusted advisor to CEO's and COO's, helping them to get value from their projects, programmes and ventures.
I am also a member of the Executive Coaching Panel at Warwick Business School and a member of the School's Mentoring Steering Committee. It is this experience, combined with my experience as a hiring manager and, indeed, a job seeker myself that convinced to share my knowledge about how to find a job you love.
I am the author of Business Leadership for IT Projects which was published by Gower.
I have also published articles in Project Manager Today, the BCS professional members journal ITNow, and was contributor to Digital Leaders, published at the end of 2015 by the British Computer Society, the chartered institute for IT professional in the UK.
