I have over 20 years of service in the information technology field including Internet Service Provider (ISP), Cloud Service Provider (CSP), Telephony Service Provider (TSP), Systems Integrator and Vendor / Manufacturer businesses. I've also represented end-user enterprise and public sector organisations.
I have spent over 20 years working both the inside and outside of the service provider market. I've worked with clients in Canada, USA, Barbados, Bahamas, Jamaica, the EU and at home here in the UK. I consider myself a true technical solutions architect (TSA) and I have earned certifications across nearly every area of Information and Communication Technology including:
I believe that technology should never be an end unto itself. All solutions need to serve a purpose, to start with "why". This means that when working on the sell-side of the industry my focus is on the value creation story and how the messaging, collateral, reference architecture and implementation designs can support the value creation.
When working on the buy-side on behalf of enterprise and public sector I focus on a results-based outcome, and I'm highly critical of overly technical solutions or 'tick-box' compliance.
Techies are often too focused on the wrong priorities, and pure-blooded consultants don't understand the technology well enough to get the most out of it. I'm a unique resource with my deep and broad technical background and singular focus on business value-based outcomes. No-one is better able to help you sell more or buy better in the ICT space.
Services for service providers and tech companies
Documentation, processes and training are all part of having a top-performing pre-sales team. My 20+ years of experience in Solutions Architecture and my love of clear concise documentation will transform your team.
I know how to get the best out of technology, and how to turn that technology into a powerful value creation story. Let me help make sure your products are winners.
I have over 20 years selling across multiple regions and into all verticals. Let me take the lead or be part of a larger team on any complex bid responses or solution designs.
Services for Enterprise & Public Sector
With over 20-years on the sell-side of the ICT space, I know how to make sure you're getting the right solution from the right supplier. Let me guide you to the results-based outcome your organisation needs and avoid the provider traps and pitfalls.
I've worked on the designs of multiple global ISP/CSP networks and platforms. There's no-one better to bring that service-provider mentality to your organisation's designs for lower-cost and higher efficiency.
If you're struggling to design your organisation around the available technology, tools and best-practices, let me be your guide. I'll help you to empower your people to deliver the best for less.
Please contact me for any other areas you think I might be able to help.
