I am an experienced consultant, having worked as a specialised procurement consultant for 15 years. I have undertaken assignments in Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand

I have helped developed procurement strategy, facilitated stakeholders, and led multi-million dollar negotiations, including negotiating with monopolies. These assignments not only require functional expertise of the highest order, but also sensitivity to the stakeholders and the political context.

I also enjoy translating good practice into policies, principles and guidelines, and developing 'model' category or sourcing plans. I have also been involved in a range of 'transformation' projects. My experience is that change is rarely about pieces of paper, it is about changing people, their beliefs and their behaviours.

I am articulate, passionate and persuasive, and possess a genuine enthusiasm for procurement. Someone has to!
