Analytics expert with a consulting background.
Doing a brilliant, insightful piece of analysis is useless if it isn't effectively communicated to decision makers and key stakeholders. My background is in both carrying out first class analysis and in effective communication.
After receiving my degree from Cambridge University, I began training as a management accountant, and was then seconded into a comprehensive business improvement programme at a paper company which put it into profit prior to a sale.
Subsequently I have undertaken many consulting projects, specialising in data visualisation, financial modelling and statistics in, amongst other fields, pharmaceuticals, consumer goods and Adult Social Care. Most recently I have been assisting regulatory bodies detect online cheating at the card game of bridge which involves statistical analysis, developing novel algorithms and building dashboards to show findings.
I have also had my own business ventures and I therefore think with an entrepreneur's mindset.
I look forward to working with you.
