Maybe you'd prefer to take a look at some of the media stories about my work. You can also review a portfolio of marketing materials I have created over the years, or check out details about some of the web sites I have produced.

Work Background

I'm truly fortunate to have spent most of my working life in and around what has to be THE most exiting industry — Information Technology. And in an era where the most amazing advances just keep on happening.

One of the great virtues of working in IT is that you are exposed to a great range of organisations and many industry verticals. Best of all, I have been privileged to have worked in many different and challenging positions, for many different types of organisations and with some great people.

I enjoy new, interesting challenges, working for companies with high growth targets. I enjoy making valuable contributions to the strategy formulation and direction of the organisation, plus being a change agent to make it happen.

I have a proven ability to establish and grow businesses or divisions in tough economic times using a combination of my management, marketing, communications, information technology and business development expertise.
