,,

Realise there are more jobs than coding. We need designers, project managers, marketing, researchers and many more!

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I help organisations use technology and data to either launch new customer propositions or to improve their internal operations

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

I have always been a problem solver and when I first started my career as a management consultant I constantly saw companies struggle due to constraints with their data or systems. I realised there had to be a way to help them get to better and more sustainable outcomes so I looked for ways to use data more efficiently to gain insights that could be reused

WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"

Launching a new greenfield business in one year as the interim CTO when 5 years earlier I didn’t know much about technology

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

I love working with a team of people to make a difference. STEM is a great space to work with different experts that when put together can create something new and exciting

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

Realise there are more jobs than coding. We need designers, project managers, marketing, researchers and many more!
