I have over ten years’ experience in transforming service delivery through digital technology and over twenty in delivering change. This includes being a Cabinet Office policy advisor on digital service delivery. Successful implementation of change in Central Government (DWP, DH, MOD, CLG, HMCTS), Local Government, Housing Associations and Public Health. My work typically has a strong focus on evidence led and benefits based change and stakeholder engagement. I enjoy leading teams or can work with stakeholders to provide targeted advice or develop outputs. I also enjoy solving complex problems and implementing change working effectively with senior leaders as well as service managers and technical teams to deliver outcomes and benefits. Qualified in PRINCE 2 and Agile.
Outside work my recreation sometimes overlaps with themes from work. The psychology and science of performance fascinate me as does the process of creating high perfuming teams from people who might otherwise consider themselves fairly ordinary. I am a marathon runner and member of my local running club; I also swim long distance and I am a member of the second oldest swimming club in the UK (the Serpentine). I love the mountains, have climbed and done some ‘light mountaineering’ – which in my view is an ultimate team activity.
