I'm passionate about working with managers to develop their business strategies and organisational culture to deliver results. Together we can create an environment focused on business growth and a place where employees are supported.
I've a background in economics and accountancy; upon leaving University I undertook accountancy training and was responsible for developing financial systems and management information solutions.
I have worked with Internet technology - particularly to improve internal communication, knowledge sharing and collaboration - since 1994. I've co-run my own business since 2000, and I've spent a considerable part of my career working in and with the public sector and larger organisations.
In 2007 I was proud to become a founding director of 4TM Services, a training and consulting company dedicated to helping businesses and organisations develop strategies to implement and take advantage of social media and Web 2.0.
I also carry out public speaking engagements, helping demystify social media and collaboration in general.
I've an MA from the University of Aberdeen.
