In 1982, I read the business classic “In Search of Excellence” about Japanese and US manufacturers and total quality management. I was hooked. I am passionate about making the world a better place through quality outcomes.
I bring two decades of Higher Education and Research sector experience as a Senior IT Manager of Telecommunications based high speed internet services. I have learned that high speed 100Gb+ Internet is a game changer with a unique mix of frameworks, models and investments and partners, all organisations can benefit from experienced experts for less than the big 4 consulting firms. Serving the savvy students soon to be tomorrow’s employees and consumers gave me a glimpse of their expectations. The future is an even savvier consumer, where loyalty is fragile, the exchange of value is tied to purposeful missions where your impact on others will be reviewed, and compliance to ethics and corporate, social and environmental responsibility scrutinised.
My company, Smart Footprints started in Oct 2020 responding to my inner calling for a change from fifteen years as a full time employee. My first year has been a busy one setting up the business brand, service catalogue, partners, systems and processes, whilst doing technical consulting work. All this was done in a carbon neutral way, offsetting my emissions.
My vision and dream is to be able to do away with compliance and reporting paperwork, using cloud services, sensors and datasets to make organisations exceptional.
I want to create a unique business performance platform that operates in real time, is intuitive, that creates a business dashboard tapping into existing cloud platforms to show your financial position, your pipeline of leads, your project performance, your compliance (governance and regulatory, carbon footprint, social responsibility).
It won’t be easy and I don’t intend to re-invent but rather augment what is readily available. By doing so the platform can become the guide, the “what if” for different strategies, just like digital game based scenarios we see today, but one that uses the latest digital tech to crunch the numbers and add value.
