My specialty is supporting clients through challenging change programmes, often focusing on the Business to IT integration challenge and on shaping, re-setting and managing the change journey.
After graduating from Bradford University with a fondness for Chicken Jalfrezi and a degree in International Management and Spanish, I joined Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) in the spring of 1998. I spent nine years working for various FTSE 100 companies in ever demanding system implementation and project management roles mainly in the utility and energy sectors with a brief sojourn into online media and communications.
I heard about Berkeley through a number of friends who worked here. I was attracted by the mix of strategy and delivery work, the opportunity to work at more senior levels in a relationship-based business and the opportunity to work with passionate, dedicated colleagues who want to do what’s right for the client whilst being part of a supportive and fun community. I joined in early 2008 with a view to broadening my industry experience and deepening my consulting and project/change management skills.
Over the last 10 years I’ve experienced a huge variety of interesting and challenging roles, both in the UK and abroad, across a wide range of industries and sectors including public healthcare (CCG mergers and integrations, whole system transformation, and various urgent care strategy implementations), private healthcare (private hospital business development operating model), Transport (Target Operating Model and MarComms Function re-design at largest Train Operating Company in the UK), energy/oil and gas (migration of aging web-hosting infrastructure supporting corporate.com website to the cloud), FMCG (various roles including business case development, programme re-sets and supplier selections), media and digital marketing agency (programme re-set), and pharmaceuticals (HR implementation of largest employee recognition programme in the pharma industry with 70k employees in 10 languages across 170 sites in 113 countries).
Outside of work, I’d like to say that I enjoy tennis and mountain biking in the Surrey Hills, but my kids Oliver (7) and Emily (4) keep me busy most weekends with a variety of sporting activities and parties.
