Director, Business Outcomes
As a Business Consultant and Lean Practitioner, I help organisations, business owners and individuals improve their business performance. With an ability to see the big picture, I can identify strategic issues, as well as translate process problems to enable technology to deliver solutions.
Before co-founding Go True North in 2012, my career progressed from the shop floor to the board room with extensive experience working for global organisations in the United Kingdom and Australia. Starting out as a craft apprentice at the Central Electricity Generating Board, I continued to expand my engineering knowledge in a variety of increasingly senior roles in the United Kingdom.
I came to Australia on a 3 month contract in September 2006 and moved here in 2007 after being appointed to the role of Maintenance Manager at Hazelwood Power Station in 2007, and then the Business Optimisation Manager in 2010 and the Shared Services Director in 2012.
The Go True North journey began in 2007 when I started working with Chris Allford in the development of a project framework for a large mining and power producer. Over several years our unique skill set steered us to lead outstanding business transformation and change management projects.
This journey moved us into new and exciting methods of engagement, leadership, agile practises, lean thinking, value management, visual management and formed new thinking around project management.
It was this journey that formed the concept of combining traditional project management techniques with lean thinking and visual management that ultimately spearheaded the formation of In2 Project Management.
As the key first point of contact for our consultancy, I now oversee client engagements and lead our dedicated team to ensure we deliver the outcomes Chris and I have developed through our unique, personalised, methodical and proven methodologies.
A deeply committed professional, I’m valued for my strong leadership skills which I combine with a practical and well-organised approach to business management, client relationships and team management.
My focus on our diverse client base, particularly in the areas of business problem identification and solution management, enables me to understand and effectively communicate the requirements of operating and maintaining a business at all levels.
I invite you to connect and explore how we can help you improve your organisation’s performance.
