I am a highly motivated strategic and systems thinker who is able to quickly assess situations, diagnose problems & identify solutions with the ability to see the big picture and provide independent judgement. As a Chartered Engineer I have built on this solid foundation to work in a variety of technical, management and board roles. I deliver to customer expectations with a structured and collaborative approach to assignments, with excellent team facilitation. My wide ranging experience from capital design & build, to culture change and business system & process improvement projects are complemented with my proactive, energetic approach which is also pragmatic and adaptable.
