Personal Profile


My particular strengths are:

  • Strategy
  • Business reviews and improvement
  • Budgeting and forecasting
  • Communications
  • Systems
  • Transformational change
  • Business process improvement
  • Critical path analysis and improvement

I believe that communications are critical to unlocking the core issues and delivering value added outcomes.  I pride myself on my ability to converse with staff and directors from all levels and segments of any business.

I have an: –

  • innate ability to see quickly the critical path of what needs to be achieved to drive a business / project forward;
  • ablilty to rapidly break a business / project down into its component pieces to determine the priorities or issues;
  • in-depth understanding of business growth drivers and levers and contractual awareness of what is both written into and implied in a contract.

My inclination is to work in and with the business to understand its processes, culture and how it arrived at its current destination in order to develop strategies, business plans and new or improved processes to drive the business forward.
