Hi, I’m Dave. I’m a senior manager of digital and IT teams. I specialise in modernising technology delivery within organisations – setting the strategy, putting the programme of work together, organising the team with the right people in the right roles.

This blog is a personal one – I tend to write most days, sharing things I have seen and the occasional thought or opinion. Every sooften I send out an email summarising some of these bits.

I publish more considered, longer, polished (and dare I say useful) things on my company blog, SensibleTech.

Right now I am working at Lambeth Council, helping them figure out their long term plan for digital and social care. I also have some time outside out that contract to pick up bits and pieces of consulting work.

If you’d like to see my CV, here it is. I have a long and varied experience in local and central government, where I have worked in roles specialising in communications, policy, learning and development and digital, including a stint working on digital engagement at 10 Downing Street.

My passion is for making social change happen, particularly in a local context. In the past I have been chairman of my local parish council, and was on the board of my local Citizens Advice Bureau. I was also chair of governors at a primary school in West Sussex for a bit. Am not currently doing any voluntary stuff, mainly because of a lack of time.

You can find me on Twitter, Mastondon and LinkedIn. I also have an occasional newsletter, which you may enjoy.
