Alternative methods of contacting me during the Covid-19 situation: Like all my colleagues I am now working remotely. The good news is that you can contact me using various methods – use whatever you feel most comfortable with:
- Telephone – call my landline number shown above on this profile page (it will divert to my mobile); if I am engaged on another call, simply leave a message and I’ll return your call as soon as I can.
- Email – email me at my usual email address (shown here on this profile);
- Zoom – video call – if you would like a face to face video call I can let you have details of how to set this up very easily (and free of charge for you), using Zoom software (if you have not already got this on your mobile, iPad, laptop or PC, just send me an email to request this option);
- Royal Mail – post. We are still able to receive post but there will inevitably be a delay in using this method.
I joined the firm in August 2016, with a brief to help it maximize the benefits that could be derived from its existing ICT investment. Initially, this was focused upon the Practice Management System and the way in which it had been configured and deployed, with an additional requirement to look to formulate user friendly training to ensure all staff can work as efficiently as possible. The role quickly expanded to encompass projects across the full range of the firms’ ICT infrastructure; as well as working closely with the management team in areas such as risk management and compliance.
I have worked in Legal IT for well over 20 years, so have a wealth of experience across the different platforms, applications, hardware and varying modus operandi used within the legal world. In the not too distant past I gained a BA (Hons) in Politics, Philosophy and Economics and have continued my studies to post graduate level in Computing with a focus on Information Security. Earlier in my working life, I was a Cartographic Draughtsman at the Ordnance Survey producing UK mapping at various scales.
Away from the office I enjoy several sports, music and reading.
