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.

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?

Conference and event speaking

I am a regular speaker at conferences and company events, covering disruptive technologies including AI and RPA.

You can see some videos of me speaking on the Videos page, and see which public events I will be at on the Events page.

If you would like to discuss me speaking at one of your events, please get in touch through the Contacts page.

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.

The Executive Guide to Artificial Intelligence


I’m thrilled to say that my book, The Executive Guide to Artificial Intelligence, has been published by Palgrave MacMillan.

The book takes a pragmatic and hype-free approach to explaining artificial intelligence and how it can be utilised by businesses today. At the core of the book is a framework

Chief Robot Officer


Much of the talk right now is about how robots (by which everyone really means AI-powered automation software) will eat away at the heart of the workforce – eroding those white-collar, transactional, repetitive jobs that have been the mainstay of the Western service economy for the past 20 years.
