Professionally Speaking

[Home] [Feedback] [FAQ] [Glossary]

My career has taken what seems to me like a very logical route from engineering to business management and into people management. I have never been prepared to "given up" my technical and business skills along the way as I enjoy engineering and business way too much. Other people have commented that the "logical progression" is less obvious to them. I would retort by pointing out five things: Technology, programs, projects, partner and customers, everything else is just detail :o)

As you review my career, I've highlighted what was doing and when I moved roles, and why I moved career in the detailed sections. Maybe it will seem more logical once you read the "why" rather than the "what". I've also added a section with example materials that I have produced in my various roles. 

My career has offered me the opportunity to develop an "international constituency", and for that I am most grateful, especially for the many friends and acquaintances I have met over the years in other parts of the world.
