Business Profile

Having spent a number of years working in top executive positions with a variety of business and non-profit organisations, I now practise as an independent management consultant and aim to provide a personalised and focused service to assist organisations striving to achieve excellence in their performance. My objective is to provide organisations with the best approaches and practical techniques available to help them assess and improve their performance, approaches such as developing a strategic orientation, developing business intelligence systems, obtaining ISO certification and tapping EU funds. Apart from carrying out tailored assignments for organisations, I have also lectured in several academic institutions in the areas of economic, financial and market analysis and in the areas of performance assessment and improvement; I have also carried out several research assignments in these fields.
