HCM & Behavioural Technologist
For the last 30 years, I have focused on challenging the way People are valued and maximized in the work environment, and in particular how technologies are used to create efficient business operations through people.
This was never my ‘life plan’ funnily enough. I was an aspirant Architect spurred on by my ‘arty’ parents. I was disillusioned by the mathematical demands so I dropped out, did 2 years of military service, and landed a job in an HR department helping to implement their first HR system.
Along this journey, I fell in love with Psychology, Technology and Business Economics and went on to major in all three at Uni and expanding on these at a Master’s degree level.
I spent 10 years as a hands-on HR Practitioner in the Chemical industry, before moving into consulting. I spent 10 years at Deloitte, and 10 in a specialist HR company called Presence of IT (acquired by Deloitte – Dec 2019). Right now, I’m the Global lead: HCM & Behavioural Technologist at Smart WFM – a specialist Human Capital consultancy specialising in Digital Transformation.
I bring a unique mix of business, psychology, technical, and HR experience into advisory discussions, and enjoy exploring innovative ways of building HR success
