About Me

I am a seasoned ICT practitioner with over 17 years experience in the African and Global ICT space. I am a strong believer in ICTs being a key catalyst in the improvement of the socioeconomic state of individuals and organizations and Iā€™m passionate about the efficient adoption of ICTs.

I have a deep understanding and wide ranging knowledge of technology selection, implementation, and current trends and I am cognizant of the revolutionary power of Emerging Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI). Internet of Things (IoT), Hyperscale Computing, Blockchain and Big Data will have on how businesses define, create and transfer value to their customers.

I have worked with many organizations in various capacities to transform how they create and offer value through the use of technology specifically in:

  • Technology investment decisions for both in-house and service/value delivery to customers
  • Design and implementation of various technology systems and services
  • Technology process and policy formulation and implementation
  • Technology systems audit and appraisal against objectives and  standards
  • Knowledge transfer through bespoke technology training for all audiences including the board

The need to understand emerging technologies and their impact on business is no longer the forte of the IT manager or CIO but is also a concern in many boardrooms today. My advisory and training services help to future-proof businesses and their ability to create and transfer value to their customers. 

Contact me today to start your journey towards informed technology decision making and how to future proof your organization.
