I am a passionate digital leader, experienced strategist, and champion for digital democracy. I have a successful track record in digital delivery in Parliament, Government and the private sector with experience of leading multi-disciplinary teams to deliver value for money, high quality, digital products. Right now I am responsible for Parliament's public facing web, intranet and all other digital channels including mobile, tablets and social media including blogging, YouTube and social networking. In a role that allows me to combine a fascination with politics with a love for technology, I am relishing the opportunity to have a real impact on the way Parliament works in the UK.
I have been involved in all stages of the processes of major digital projects: development of the web strategy, business case, procurement, design, implementation and business change.
Recent challenges include the implementation of a new content management system across both external and internal sites, the development of an award-winning mobile intranet site and the delivery of tablet and mobile apps to support an increasing channel shift from print to online information provision. This project is already proving to be a huge cost saver in a hitherto very print and paper heavy organisation.
I was previously Head of the e-Media Team at the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office where I was responsible for a complete redevelopment of the organisation’s corporate website and 200 plus British Embassy and High Commission websites.
