I am a Procurement Practice Specialist (Project Manager) Crown Agents, an organisation dedicated to international development that strives to accelerate self-sufficiency and prosperity. I am proficient in the EU Directives (with training from Achilles) and Donor Aid Programme regulations (Global Fund, DFID), aswell as being very commercially astute. This enables me to utilise my knowledge of best practice in procurement for both the Private and Public sector within the scope of all of my projects. I work in very challenging environments and often need to problem solve and adapt quickly to changes of circumstances. Risk mitigation, value for money and relationships are key to success. I am a Prince2 Practitioner (Project Manager) and MCIPS qualified by examination. I am always looking to keep up with industry trends and expand my knowledge, network and skills. To this extent I am currently half way through a Masters Degree at Cranfield University (Logistics and Supply Chain Management) and basing my thesis around Blockchain technology applications.
