Sure, dealing with your business challenges and ideas alone can be intimidating. You can probably use some help with finding answers to your challenges. That is why I am here. I take the time to empathise, starting with the question, what and why. I help organisations to plan, transform and innovate.
I often work in IT and Digital space independent of any industry or vendor, but I work across all the leaders and team members in the business. If you’re reading this, I guess you have a need or have a business challenge or idea. Maybe it’s a digital transformation initiative. Maybe it’s a new strategic direction. Maybe it’s changing your organisation’s information systems or looking to re-invent your business. Maybe you are in need of an independent assessment or review.
I enjoy facilitating opportunities for innovation applying design thinking, collaboration and engagement; and thrive on leading discussions about challenging problems and reaching outcomes that stakeholders and partners are committed to and empowered to execute.
Over the years, I have worked on some of the most complex, innovative, high-risk and business-critical transformation programs, with skills backed by an 18-year career in Enterprise Architecture, IT Consulting, Project Management and Business Analysis across the healthcare, education, retail, government and consulting sectors.
I am a passionate presenter. I speak at conferences to professional association events. I am asked to speak on emerging trends, enterprise architecture, innovation, business and operating model design.
I grew up in Sri Lanka. For those who need help with geography, it is a tiny little Island in the Indian Ocean. I majored in IT as a postgraduate from Macquarie University in Australia. I worked in information technology for 18 years, first as a programmer and later as a business analyst, project manager, enterprise architect and director.
I came to Australia in 2005 after having worked in the US, Europe and Dubai. I have been able to work on some amazing transformations, and I enjoyed every bit of change and challenge.
