I have over 30 years experience in understanding, translating and delivering leading technology to the market.
I am currently a Microsoft Cloud Solution Architect specialising in Advanced Analytics & Artificial Intelligence. I focus on a number of industries and moved here from a previous role with IBM as Cloud and Cognitive Technical Leader where I aligned clients' long-term business imperatives to cloud and machine learning capabilities.
In a previous role as CTO for IBM Collaboration Solutions I drove the regional strategy, supported long-term client engagements and built trusted relationships at all levels. I provided a public face for IBM through press, conferences, interviews and publications and was recognised as a key innovator between IBM labs, product management, clients and business partners.
With over 20 years experience as a data, software and collaboration architect, I have a track record of focusing on transformative solutions that put the client at the heart of the engagement. I have led many initiatives aimed at shaping strategic technology decisions, as well as proving and introducing new technology. Many of these have resulted in new offerings to the market.
I am recognised as a technical leader with a record of coaching, mentoring and building programs for technical and personal development across multiple communities.
My Royal Academy of Engineering appointment bridges the academic and industry gap to influence curriculum and the undergraduate approach to practical application of AI and Cloud technologies. I lecture on various topics from machine learning, and design thinking to architectural thinking.
