Agile Project Delivery

About

My Story 
One of my earliest memories is of me obsessing over the arrangement of an ornament collection made up of mostly sea animals like dolphins which I had proudly collected over many weeks of dedicated trips to the local town to purchase a new one with pocket money from my nan. I feel this story highlights an attribute of my personality I cannot escape - the need for structure, order, and alignment. And it's probably at the heart of why I do what I do now. 

Where it all began 

My interest in business started when I was exposed to the family business when I was growing up. My parents started selling fruit and veg on market stalls and boot fairs in Kent and Essex. They then went on to open a Farm Shop called Bloom and Veg, which is still running today! From this experience, I learned about all facets of business operations. I went to the night market - New Spitalfields - with my Dad regularly so I learned about imports, exports, negotiation, and invoicing. I worked in the shop from as young as 10, helping elderly customers to their cars with bags - Customer Service. And in the summer months, I sat outside with the compost, keeping an eye on the garden compost, large bags of potatoes, and gas cylinders that thieves loved to steel - Security.

When I was a bit older, I started helping with more complex business tasks. I took stock of inventory and prepared lists of items needed in the market - inventory and forecasting. I helped my Dad with his first website - web development. I painted signs out front to attract cars driving by - Marketing. And when I was old enough to drive, I even packaged orders that had been made and delivered them in the back of my Ford Fiesta to Care Homes, Cafes, and restaurants. Undoubtedly, all of this made me who I am. 

I then went on to study Business Studies and Information Systems at GCSE, then 6th Form, and finally at University as well! 

Between 2011 and 2015 I was creating, delivering, and managing events, promotional, and digital marketing campaigns. 

Then in 2016, after a side step into managing technology projects, I started my company Agile Project Delivery.  Over the past 7 years, I've delivered 11 global technology transformation programmes for enterprise-size organisations.
