Are you an IT person who wants to start or grow your business, but who needs a little help with understanding all the non IT stuff?
I have worked in IT for over 30 years, from being an IT software developer through IT Project Management to senior IT leadership. Building on this experience, as well as my research and MBA, I have developed 100s of MDs, Directors and senior IT Managers to improve their business skills, people skills and results.

Few IT people are good at understanding business needs or relating to non-technical people. These skills can improve business success by as much as 50%. Sadly, business and people skills training and development is rarely focused on the specific needs of IT people.
If you are an IT business owner, or manager in a larger organisation, I can help to develop your skills. I do this through a personalised programme of practical mentoring, games and workshops. My proven approach is to work on real business problems – so that you get direct benefit, which you can apply immediately. I can help you with:
Managing IT People Performance – getting more from individuals and teams
Team building, understanding individual motivation, setting objectives, writing job descriptions, monitoring progress, measuring productivity, mentoring for improved performance, flexible working etc.
Personal Development Planning- IT management skills
Looking at personal motivation, reviewing management styles, effective communication, growing leadership skills, taking responsibility for the team, developing a mentoring approach, project management, creative problem solving, ‘walking the job’, time management, management networking, identifying learning opportunities, time management, developing soft skills, management tips, techniques & tools etc.
Stakeholder Management – improved agreements and better understanding
Facilitated discussions, defining goals, increasing innovation, analysing and mitigating risks, customer surveys, managing suppliers, setting expectations, negotiating win-win, defining business strategy, business planning, communicating effectively, ecollaboration etc.
Leading from the Middle - getting good management top to bottom
