Helping improve your organisation

Strategic Reviews and Transformation


Making services more relevant and cost effect to customers is vital in the current difficult economic climate. The ability to look at things with a fresh pair of eyes is important in reviewing and transforming services.


Working for and with market leading organisations has given me unique skills in being able to quickly identify key issues in order to formulate simple but effective strategies to make significant improvements.


In difficult times it is all too easy to overlook things that could be done better to improve your productivity or profitability.


So whether you require a quick overview or more detailed support, I can design an appropriate package to identify issues and develop simple but effective action plans. I can also help you deliver improvement or transformation.


With a background in Local Government Outsourcing, I am well placed to offer the public sector advice on future service delivery models and procurement.
