- CORDA: BAE SytemsOperational Analyst, 1985 - 2010
I am a Confrontation Analyst / Operational Analyst with skills in: negotiation strategy, wargaming, data gathering and analysis, quick-look modelling techniques, and political and historical analysis. I specialise in the fields of confrontation analysis, military analysis and energy & power. I have led many operational analysis projects for the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) the Ministry of Defence (MoD), and internally for BAE Systems.
In recent years I have pioneered the use of role playing symposia throughout BAE Systems to investigate tricky negotiations using Confrontation Analysis, and ran 19 projects for BAE Systems using this method.
Since leaving BAE Systems I have worked as an independent consultant using Confrontation Analysis on a variety of different projects, from helping individuals, to working with government departments such as Cranfield university and DSTL (see www.decisionworkshops.com)
I am also a keen wargame developer and through this have developed a knowledge of modern military tactics and modelling techniques. My work on energy and power has contributed to the London Accord initiative by the development of a political role play looking at international cooperation on tackling the effects of global warming.
I love presenting and I am a keen public speaker and am an officer of the Berkley Square branch of Toastmasters International where I coach and evaluate members in leadership, public speaking and presentation skills.
