As part of the management team at Symphony Ventures, I provide thought-leadership and advisory services in the use of robotic software automation and artificial intelligence in business.
Impact Sourcing provides real work for disadvantaged people. I am currently working with Loughborough University on a paper discussing the positive impact of technology and automation on Impact Sourcing.
I advise law firms and corporate legal teams on legal services transformation. I am co-author, with the London School of Economics, of 'The Rise of Legal Services Outsourcing' (Bloomsbury).
I've been a Management Consultant for most of my career, working all over the world advising on change management, transformation, outsourcing and technology.
I now focus on a few specific areas, including robotic process automation, AI, legal services and impact sourcing.

I let my creative juices flow at the weekend when I can be found DJing as one half of the Sheen Resistance, fighting the world of mediocrity in South West London using the power of disco.
