This is a very brief summary created to give an overview of the background that I draw on to work with dancers and other creatives whilst building Dance GRiST. If you want something more comprehensive ask me or visit my LinkedIN profile.
Project and Programme Management
A variety of financial, technical and cultural projects often spanning multiple countries including;
KAI Corporation (Risk): In 1995 I started a successful boutique risk management consultancy that peaked at a turnover of £3.5m with 12 consultants plus support staff. Clients were major national and international organisations in both private and public sectors. As an internationally acknowledged thought-leader in big-picture risk management I was also a popular speaker and writer on risk management issues.
All the projects with which I was involved came in on time, to – or under – budget and to the client’s satisfaction.
Finance and Banking includes: consolidation of data from all Shell’s operating companies from 52 countries, merger-creation of NatWest Group, consolidation of Commercial and General with Norwich Union to form CGNU.
