I am an IT professional with over 30 years experience in IT, initially at HSBC, with GE Capital, Bank of Scotland and most recently Telefonica.

Now I split my time between three passions:

1. Agile Coach and C-level consultant on Agility, as Founder of Big Agility Ltd
( I have been doing this for 3 years
2. Snr. Business Consultant with Ctrl Shift, a company at the forefront of the Information Economy. ( I have been doing this for 3 years
3. Founder and Director of Forever Caring Homes, a Ugandan charity supporting orphaned children whose parents have died from AIDS. Been doing this for 3 years

I am just starting to sort out my social media, so you can get my professional stuff at and my personal stuff at ("God and stuff").

I am:
• A highly experienced entrepreneurial change leader, successfully delivering agility and strategic business transformation at some of the UK’s biggest companies. I am particularly adept at communicating to all levels and roles within organisations.
• An exceptional strategist, advising world brand clients on future market trends
• A highly skilled communicator and leader.

And I have proven and demonstrable success in building high performing cross-functional Agile teams that enable great value and delivery certainty.

Specialties: Agility, C-level Consultancy, Strategic Programme Delivery, Transformational Change Management, Online and Digital business strategy, Conference speaker on Agility and Personal Information Economy.

Highlights from the last 3 years:

• Innovation Lab director for a major UK Retail client
• Client Lead for major research and Value Proposition work with very well known Marketing Company
• Technical Director for the Midata Innovation Lab for BIS Department, HMGov
• IT Delivery Lead for O2’s major Agility and Business Transformation programme
