The conversation is the relationship.

Doing business well can be difficult because the really important messages don't get through: they are poorly articulated, poorly written, poorly presented. The conversation is the relationship. Make the conversation count.

  

Consulting Services

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 disruptive sourcing.

Coaching Services

In many projects it is the human relationships that can be the main barrier to delivering successful outcomes.

As part of my consulting work, I often have the responsibility to coach client team members, giving them advice and support beyond the normal project responsibilities.

Not only does this help the short-term results of the project but benefits the team members in their long-term careers.

Strategic Advice

I'm working with a number of firms as a strategic advisor. Some are focused around new technologies such as Robotics and AI (two of which have been named as Gartner Cool Vendors).

Others are in established sectors, such as legal, that are facing huge disruption to their business models.

All are young, ambitious firms trying to do things differently.

If that sounds like you, then perhaps we should talk?

Academic Lecturing

I occasionally lecture post-graduate university students on a range of subjects including business strategy, outsourcing, robotics and artificial intelligence.

I've recently taught students at Loughborough University as part of their MBA course.

Pimp My Powerpoint

I feel this is a personal mission to rid the world of bad presentations. Again and again I have to witness painful and meaningless presentations that could, with a little imagination and structure, be brilliant.

Pimp My Powerpoint is a range of services to bring excellence and meaning to important presentations, from the initial white boarding to the finished product.

The Sheen Resistance

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.

We organise and run our own gigs in East Sheen throughout the year and do occasional private parties.  If you want to strut that funky stuff, then do come along to our next gig.

We did our biggest ever DJ gig on Saturday, playing to a sold-out crowd of 400 of London’s most beautiful people at the fabulous Bush Hall. As well as our usual Sheen Resistance fare of disco, soul and funk music, we had the amazing Hot Heels dancers whip

Playing Games with AI That Play Games


One of my New Years Resolutions is, rather strangely, to play more computer games. I used to play quite a bit when I was younger (original SimCity and Doom anyone?) but haven’t in a while because of the usual pressure of time and the guilt associated with the activity

My AI Article for Professional Outsourcing Magazine


I was asked to write the lead article for Professional Outsourcing Magazine‘s special Artificial Intelligence issue. In the piece I describe what AI is in terms of the capabilities it can deliver, and how AI can be used practically in businesses today. I also cover some of the risks
