About

SAP evangelist. Accountant and programme manager

After moving from IT programming into ERP systems, I qualified as a management accountant in order to understand what my clients were going through. I have ended up helping clients of all sizes and sectors by providing business-focused solutions based on SAP technology and I now spend my time working with Bluefin and SAP account teams to facilitate joint solutions that have the capability of adding real business value to our joint clients.

I recognise that it is often a challenge just to get sufficient headspace in today’s world to understand what value current and future SAP offerings could have for an organisation– so I focus on harnessing the innovation taking place within Bluefin and making it accessible for my clients. This is anything from Big Data, Mobility and Cloud, to deliverables like process efficiencies and reporting in areas such as margins, plans and forecasts.

Outside of work you’re likely to find me struggling to keep my house and garden in some kind of order, or supporting one of my children on the sidelines of a rugby, football or tennis match.
