Consultancy and professional practice

I have been PI and brought to successful completion three KTPs:

  • WBS and RPC LLP, a City legal services company. The project was awarded the grade of "Outstanding", won Best KM Initiative or Implementation in a Professional Services Firm (KMUK 2011), was commended in the Intranet Innovations Award 2011 and shortlisted in three other occasions.
  • WBS and DSPG Telecom, a company supplying specialised telecommunications equipment and infrastructure. The aim of this KTP was the delivery of a business model that would enable DSPG to offer their services to the deaf and hard of hearing community, both nationally and internationally.
