“If you have a fixed idea of your plan, you might not see new opportunities open up.” – An interview with Jane Such
WHAT I DO
I oversee the delivery contracts for the Ministry of Justice Crime programme, ensuring contractual outputs and targets are met while adding value and keeping the client and the associates happy. I also act as a bid manager for new sales opportunities. As and when opportunities arise I participate or lead on internal projects.
I have worked in IT for over 35 years delivering projects and providing consultancy across a multitude of delivery roles and industries. Several of my roles have involved writing sales proposals and presentations. One of my favourite roles was leading the UK software testing function for a large international consultancy company.
Balance is the key to everything
WHEN NOT WORKING I…
I am watching dramas on TV, wild swimming, doing beginners yoga, walking or cycling.
WHAT WOULD YOU NOT HAVE GUESSED ABOUT ME
I am a fairly open book but you may not know that I used to be technical, I started my career as an Assembler programmer in the engineering team for a local electricity board. More recently I specialised in software testing, having had a couple of articles published in Test Magazine and an expert opinion quote in The Times.
I am learning to grow vegetables in my garden and I have made bread for the first time this year. My third attempt at a plain loaf was very edible and I am now moving on to sourdough.
