I am an enthusiastic and hardworking, Microsoft certified, Cloud and Infrastructure consultant working within the Digital Works Group Technology and Security practice.

I have successfully delivered digital transformation, solution architecture, IT strategy consultation, infrastructure design, data migration and web development services to a diverse range of clients, ranging from nimble start-ups to enterprise-scale corporations. My list of previous clients includes leading brands such as Proximus Telecoms, Jet2 Holidays and Tesco PLC.

With over a decade of commercial experience in the architecture, development, deployment and operational service management of Microsoft applications, my wide-ranging technical skills have enabled my clients to succeed with development and digital transformation projects that otherwise would have become costly failures.

I have designed and implemented numerous bespoke systems that have helped my clients to transform their IT functions, become more agile and benefit from all the efficiency benefits that cloud technologies can bring.

I can improve your IT project management – looking at current practices to enhance operational project delivery. Being thorough, astute and organised, I can take the stress away and manage your IT projects from that start through to completion.

John is a brilliantly talented website designer who is easy to work with and is full of ideas. He takes my basic requirements and he finds ways of implementing them, even if this means hours of research to find how to make it possible. Highly recommended.
