About

As an author, speaker, and business transformation consultant, specialising in digital transformation and project management, I lead and facilitate technological change through identifying patterns and advances, evaluating and demonstrating the business case. 

With this, I also provide a conduit between stakeholders to drive successful technology adoption outcomes. My highly effective negotiation skills deliver positive outcomes. On this note, it influences the decision making process to drive success. 

In addition, I bring extensive program leadership, offering strategic oversight while simultaneously communicating effectively at all levels. This includes within business, the community and on the client side.

More importantly, I am straightforward, transparent, solution-focused, and commercially aware. I have delivered countless projects in big data and technology and understand the complexities of the change process, encouraging others to embrace change through embodying it myself. Given this, my advanced analytical and problem-solving skills enable me to meet the needs of a diverse range of clients across the public and private sector. 

Having spent my whole career in the technology sector, I flourish on quickly adapting to changing circumstances and prioritizing ever-changing needs in this rapidly-evolving, complex and uncertain environment. Hence, in everything from project management to PPM to deploying agile methodologies I inspire others to evolve ways of working to deliver on time and to budget.

Additionally, my thought-provoking writing has appeared in journals and publications, including The Project Times, The Business Analyst Times, Medium, LinkedIn and The Business and The Financial Times. As an expert in Digital Transformation and Leadership, I have also published two books in this field. 

Other than these, I regularly speak to C-Level Suite executives, aspiring leaders, and organisations on driving change through Project and Portfolio Management, Digital Transformation and Digital Leadership.

Currently, I am based in Canberra with my wife. A social media enthusiast, a recovering football (soccer) addict, a Manchester United fan, and an Aston Martin Red Bull Racing motorhead. My passion is for adrenalin sports activities. I regularly watch professional rugby league matches involving the Canberra Raiders. 

A remaining ambition is to publish a memoir to inspire others.
