In my opinion "experience" is the most important factor when it comes to deciding who is going to take charge of your most important asset - Information Technology project. You don't want someone to work on your projects on trial and error basis! With over 20 years in IT field with hands on experience and managerial roles in large organisations - I have mastered the Project Management skill to approach your vision and make it a reality.
"Time and tide waits for none" - you cannot afford to lose a single second in business as your competitors are going to beat you in the business success race. Your deadlines have to be met as all other things are tied up to it. You need someone who will deliver on time. My track record will tell you how I have managed various types of projects and task commitments successfully.
You need someone with multitasking ability. IT projects are done "at the speed of light" and to deliver that you have to take charge of various tasks which have to be orchestrated in order to get the right output. My past profile with various responsibilities and skills set is an indicator of this skill set. I have quoted as a serious multi-tasker.
Communication is one of the primary factor which either drives a project smoothly to its success or can crush it at an early stage. Able to explain to the details to various stakeholders coming from various background is a must have skill. With my long experience in conducting lectures, various seminars and making positive public appearance have given me immense strength in this area.
These are the proven indicators of a professional consultant. It's always great to meet and chat which gives you more personal idea about the person. If you need to do video chat please let me know as lot of my clients are from overseas and we do share project information over the Internet through video conferencing.
Besides IT - I am involved with music, graphics designing, photography, teaching, content development, sports and trekking. I love adventures and nature. New Zealand is a beautiful country and the environment is perfect for creative ideas, development and research. Economic and political stability means there's no factor which might affect your project other than natural disaster or forces of nature which is beyond anyone's control.
