I am an IT Project Manager with 7 years experience in property management, financial solutions and data-related solutions for demanding clients such as Barclays, Ericsson and Microsoft.
Over the past 3 years, I have developed a new Business Intelligence and Purchasing solution to meet the needs of our global clients. This was initially setup with 4 individuals but we have now grown to a team of 14 - where I have designed many of the implementation procedures and AGILE practices.
Prior to this, I took on responsibility for mobilising the technology element of a new contract win at the BBC. I was faced with a fixed deadline and a constantly changing set of requirements. But I overcame this by acquiring additional resources and working very closely with all my stakeholders. During this time, I also addressed concerns raised by many of the transferring employees that I encountered, as HR encountered difficulties in contacting each individual personally. Despite these difficulties, the project was deemed a success on the original go-live date that was promised to the client.
I have a keen interest in how technology will interact with different social/cultural/economic situations, and what kind of world this will lead to. I also firmly believe that new and innovative ideas have the greatest potential to effect change - and that my natural inquisitiveness, optimism and constant drive to improve can really make these revolutions happen.
