Most of my career I have been fortunate to lead the design, development and strategic direction of very large mission critical transaction processing systems (Big IT). Putting in place some of the fundamental building blocks that enabled the City to move towards Big Bang and to progress afterwards. From the City I moved on to travel and aviation as a General Manager and Chief Technology Officer. Leaving corporate life I set up a portfolio of activities involving consultancy, new ventures and being a non executive director.
What are the top things you would like other members to know about your business?
Swift Management Consultants has worked on a wide range of projects from due diligence on a Euro 3.4bn buy out to a night club in Florida. These and many others were all the result of networking.
How has TEN helped you so far?
In several ways, two I would highlight are the membership and networking skills. Many members have been very helpful with ventures that I have been involved in either offering advice, contacts or getting involved and helping directly with fund raising.
TEN has allowed me to develop my networking skills at the same time as expanding my network.
How can you help TEN?
I am happy to help other members of TEN where I can if I have relevant experience or acting as a sounding board, sharing contacts either at the monthly networking meetings or in response to requests sent through the members’ broadcast network.
