My career has coincided with a dramatic shift in the way we think about and interact with technologies. I have worked at the forefront of technology change from the earliest commercialisation of the web to emerging privacy and online regulation helped build the communication networks we rely on and advised on the cloud, digital transformation, and artificial intelligence. My work has also developed new models for outsourcing and offshoring, and brought contracting practice in line with agile development.
My expertise spans the network, broadcasting, mobile, cloud, server and supercomputing infrastructure. On the software side, I have advised extensively on development, licensing, open-source and SaaS models. I have helped develop security and interoperability standards. My advisory practice covers data exploitation, artificial intelligence, and new contracting models.
My clients include financial institutions and other organisations who are highly regulated including in education, healthcare, and telecommunications. My clients include both Fortune 500s and high growth companies in emerging technologies and fintech.
My goal is to support clients in navigating complexity by delivering certainty and simplicity. I have helped several FTSE 100s through crises from collapsed suppliers to data breaches; contract failures to outsourcing exits and major renegotiations. I have learned from the toughest situations what really matters and I bring those skills to projects often ranging in the £100s millions or more in value.
