I can help you understand how IT people think or, if you’re an IT person, I can help you understand everyone else.

I have worked in IT for over 30 years, from being an IT software developer through to managing numerous IT teams. Building on this experience, as well as my research and MBA, I have developed 100s of IT professionals in order to improve their business skills, people skills and results. I help IT business owners and managers to deliver more value from the people they work with. (Read more about Jacqui Hogan).

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:
