I provide insight and thought leadership on the practical application of Artificial Intelligence in business. I am a member of the Advisory Board of Celaton, a leading provider of intelligent automation software.
I provide thought leadership and advisory services in the use of robotic software automation. I am a strategic advisor to Symphony Ventures, a leading innovator in the implementation of RPA.
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 disruptive sourcing.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
