I've been in Technical Management for 17 years in the Health, Not for Profit and SME sectors. Including 4 years on the Senior Management Team of an international Charity.
This has given me a unique set of skills – Staff management, Technical management and a thorough understanding of the wider needs of a business as well as a vast range of technical skills.
A nerd with business & interpersonal skills!Many companies struggle with making IT work well for their business.
Potential IT Solutions are usually assessed by staff who do not have the experience to evaluate the claims of the solution provider's sales team.
Most organisations rely on contractors to provide their IT expertise – even though this advice is naturally primarily geared towards the contractors own companies needs rather than yours.
I can help by joining your team short or long term, acting on your behalf to source and assess solutions based on your companies business needs rather than the needs of the supplier. Offering Technical and business advice based on my wide experience.
I have been writing custom programs from complex database applications to web based interfaces for many years.
Bespoke programs are a great way to get exactly what you need from a system. But they often fail to deliver as the contractors cannot translate your needs accurately into a system. I have been programming since the early 80's - but my main career focus has been in business management. I've now combined my career & programming experience to be able to provide a 360 degree service in a single person.
