Bsc Computing Science
I am an experienced project & business product professional who has spent over 15 years working in roles as a brand developer, production manager, buyer, product & category manager, educator and trainer, and through to internal PMO. Across multi-tier & channel organisations - SME's and ASX listed large corporates, and amongst traditional retail and pure-play eCommerce.
Most of my career has been spent working in an end-to-end PLM model where I was able to work on a brand, product or process from its inception to its launch and through to 'in-market life'. Following the 'in-market life' as BAU and managing it until 'out-of-season' or at 'quit-life' in a range or business review process.
From the vendor partner's manufacturing plant - walking-the-floor, to shipping yards, to head office and through to the warehouse and stores. My time & experience through businesses in retail, manufacturing & production - has seen me work through many facets of the product life cycle and enabled me to understand many areas that are often not considered when implementing a new project, process, and training.
One of the key skills I bring to my work is being able to access and advise from my body of experience, not only in the positive, but also being able to advise where I have seen less than successful outcomes be it due to a combination of strategic, process related tech and people issues.
In 2018, I made the decision to work primarily in a free-lance capacity taking advantage of the flexibility offered through technology. I am available to consult through a number of organisations via both fixed, retainer and adhoc consulting arrangements.
This site has been built to provide a snapshot of who I am and some of the key experiences that I believe provide the basis of what I offer. My LinkedIn profile offers another perspective, and I'm always keen to talk through - over the phone - any aspect of what you see here.
