Books & Consulting

The focus of my work is to provide a clear and concise bridge between senior executives and tech leaders. I "translate" between business and technology. I do this through multiple channels: I consult and advise organisations on tech issues, I teach and run workshops, and I write.


As a leader, it is not your job to be the tech expert or to have deep technical knowledge. It is your job to understand the impact and consequence of cybersecurity, privacy and AI, and your role in establishing appropriate policy and ensuring governance and oversight.


As a business leader you are responsible for governance and oversight of AI - either for the technologies that you use in your enterprise or products and services that you might offer to your customers that utilise AI. Our new book sets out AI Policy Guidelines that you need to understand.

Large-scale IT projects often fail, and budgets get blown up all the time. Despite new methods (eg: Agile), the rate of failure for an IT Project is between 65% (small) to 98% (large) with massive costs and consequences. What are you doing to be the 2% that succeed?
