How Can I Help?

Whether you’re a start-up, established company, or non-profit, I can help you:

Build a Technology Strategy

I work with you to build a practical and actionable technology strategy that aligns with you business strategy and facilitates growth.

Launch a New Digital Product

We’ll deep-dive into your idea and validate requirements, before producing a robust technical blueprint that’s ready to be built through my network of partners.

Turn Data Into Actionable Insights

Using a tried-and-tested methodology we’ll audit your data, identify value, architect an effective data stack and distribute insights across your company.

Integrate, Automate and Scale

By identifying opportunities for integration and automations, I’ll help you focus on the activities that drive real business value across your company.

Engagement Models

I usually work with clients using one of the three engagement models below. However, I can be flexible, so if there’s a slightly different model you feel would be more beneficial then please do reach out.

Fractional CTO

A fractional CTO has similar responsibilities to that of a regular CTO, but doesn’t work exclusively full-time for one client. If you have multiple work streams, require regular dedicated hours and a ‘hands-on’ approach, then this may be the best model for you.

Project Based Consultancy

I have several pre-defined consultancy offerings (see the four above), each designed and optimised to meet a specific business requirement. Although the core offering is pre-defined, each is customised and will be tailored to your specific needs.

Pure Advisory

Maybe you just need access to an experienced technical advisor who ‘has the t-shirt’, and can help ensure you’re heading in the right direction? If so, I can provide a flexible fixed-fee advisory service that can be utilised by multiple people within your company.
