I am a performance improvement consultant with over fifteen years practice in delivering bespoke professional training, focused performance coaching and practical project consulting. I am South African with Italian heritage, am based in the UK, and practice internationally.
My career followed the achievement of a BSc degree in Computer Science and a first class Honours degree in Applied Mathematics in 1991. I joined a large mining and finance company in South Africa (Anglo American Corporation), where I gained experience in IT risk management, business process improvement and project management. Through my promotions and various roles, I became familiar with the workings of all parts of a large, international organisation, and also developed my skills in people and performance management. I then established myself as an independent consultant from which time I further developed my professional project management capability, and hold the PRINCE2 Practitioner and AgilePM Practitioner certifications. I also developed my interest in human potential, and am a Master NLP Practitioner.
I have written and delivered training programmes in generalist and specialist fields, including topics on strategic leadership and management, project management, virtual teams, diversity and inclusion, and personal effectiveness. I have also designed and implemented blended learning solutions for my international clients, using a mix of classroom, video and web-based training.
As a senior international consultant, I have practiced across many industry sectors and in several countries across Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, Asia Pacific and the USA. My industry sector experience includes Construction, Electrical Engineering, Energy & Utilities, Financial Services, Food & Beverage, Healthcare, Industrial Goods Manufacturing, Information Technology, Logistics, Media & Telecomms, Oil & Gas, Property Management, PR, Purchasing and Supply Chain Management, Standards Certification, Retail and Tobacco.
I am also a visiting lecturer at the London School of Business and Finance, where I deliver their Advanced Certificates in Strategic Leadership & Change Management, and Management Consulting & Project Management.
I am tenaciously results-focused, and engage individuals and teams with energy, enthusiasm and passion for continuous improvement.
