I am an independent consultant working in the UK  providing interim business, telecoms and IT services to UK and Global companies.

I have long track record of successfully managing and delivering IT and Telecoms products and services. I work with integrity to motivate and manage my teams, to plan and then deliver hi-tech products and services, increasing revenue and customer satisfaction. I am a good communicator and negotiator doing whatever is necessary to achieve a positive outcome to deliver on my product roadmaps. I have successfully defined, developed and launched many new fixed and mobile services (including at MCI WorldCom, Orange, O2, Vodafone, Motorola & Hutchison). I have a very strong technical background (and have an Electronics and Physics degree) in addition to extensive strategic planning and business development skills. This has given me the insight to successfully plan and then deliver services in challenging environments including fixing Vodafone’s broken TV and VOD service and fixing customer and supplier relationships at Hutchison to enable the successful delivery of a major network migration. I always engage closely with customers and stakeholders alike, helping prevent conflict and to ensure a smooth delivery.
