In an early morning joint operation, Sarasota Police and the US Coast Guard swooped on a Osprey nest that was becoming unstable, and within 20 minutes defused the critical situation. In a parallel effort, they also replaced the power cable that the naughty bird had been chewing on. 

This is how we roll in Sarasota!

Today, the Osprey was back on the nest. I planned to get a shot of her later, but the wind came up and blew me right across the bay while I was fiddling with some tangled fishing tackle. Maybe tomorrow.

Introduction

Many organisations want to use IT as a strategic business enabler. The realisation of this ambition is my speciality.

I am an experienced manager and executive and have had a wide-ranging international career in information technology in the United States, Europe and Africa, where I have added value for large financial institutions, consulting firms, vendors and academic institutions. I have helped these organisations with systems development, support, general management and executive management. In several instances I have brought innovative ideas to the table, motivated for their implementation, and project-managed those to successful completion, resulting in new business opportunities, cost savings, improved productivity and business agility.

I have an MBA from Henley Management College (UK), and I am a Past President and Fellow of the Computer Society of South Africa. 

As a by-product of my consulting activities I have successfully managed several research projects culminating in the publication of acclaimed reports.  The subject matter of these reports includes Outsourcing, IT Governance, Information Security, Financial Management of IT, Web Services, Business Process management and Mobile Technologies.
