MY SKILL SET

How can I help your organisation

Through my educational and professional experiences, I’ve had the opportunity to build a strong, diverse skill set that has proven to be an asset in many different situations.

BUSINESS STRATEGY AND IMPLEMENTATION

With over 20 years senior management experience across small, medium and large organisations, I have developed a broad set of skills that will assist in the development of business strategy and subsequent implementation.

PROCESS IMPROVEMENT

It is my view that increasing process efficiency through technology is often the key to driving improved financial performance. Technology can also increase employee engagement by providing immediate access to relevant employee information including training and payroll information. I can assist your business to drive change to improve business efficiency.

FINANCE MANAGEMENT

Having a Finance / Accounts Department that works collaboratively across an organisation can help to drive business success. When operational and financial areas are pulling together, business improvements are more likely and greater efficiency and focus in the right areas will be the inevitable outcome. This is an area of business that I enjoy and have developed specific skills to 'master'.
