Job title: Principal Consultant and Managing Director
I help companies get strategy implementation right. I have worked for several regional and international financial institutions, an IT solutions provider, government, regional agricultural research agency and as a lecturer at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. As a professional working across these sectors, I gained over twenty years of progressive leadership responsibility for delivering strategic results through project management and people change management. I successfully led business critical projects related to information systems implementations, financial product development, business continuity, workflow automation, database conversions, policy and procedure development and standardizations, application migration and business model transformations.
I earned an Executive MBA from the Arthur Lok Jack Global School of Business, a MSc in Strategic Business from the University of Portsmouth and a BSc in Computer Science from the University of the West Indies. I also earned several internationally recognised certifications such as the Project Management Professional (PMP), Prosci Change Management Practitioner (ADKAR) and Balanced Scorecard Associate. I am currently pursuing the Strategy Implementation Professional certification and other qualifications related to business transformation.
I firmly believe that, if companies are to succeed in implementing their strategy, then they need specialized help and a dedicated strategy implementation office. However, I recognize that this can be expensive so I recently launched the consultancy firm, Digital OSM Consulting Limited, as an outsourced model of a strategy implementation office.
Being the trusted advisor, role model, coach and mentor to whom people will look up or reach out because they know, without a doubt, that I am the reliable resource who can help them get to where they want to go. I am motivated to be this person in my professional life and it gives me great satisfaction to help clients solve their business problems. I also extend a similar philosophy to my personal life because I want to set an example for my two daughters so that they understand and appreciate that, regardless of past failures and challenges, there is always success ahead.
