About me

Senior strategic knowledge leadership / management specialising in emerging technologies, innovation & automation (MVP/CPS/ISEB) with over 15 years of international commercial experience with global organisations; including Lehman Brothers, Deutsche Bank, Thomson Reuters, New Zealand Lotteries Commission, PlanIT (Sydney), Xerox, Unisys (iPSL) and Siemens.

Following a wide-ranging experience in testing, my main focus has been in test automation - particularly in respect of functional testing (HP/Mercury, Microsoft Visual Studio & Telerik), performance testing (HP LoadRunner, Microsoft Load Testing & GreenHat) and test management (HP ALM/QC, Microsoft Test Manager & JIRA (Greenhopper)).

My recent focus has been on 'Test Automation as a Service' ( presenting at international conferences (Gartner/StarWEST/EuroSTAR/Fusion/Unicom/BCS SIGIST/ANZTB), online webinars/podcasts & training courses on cloud based solutions to support the Distributed Enterprise Agile Delivery (DEAD) and the complete Solution Delivery Lifecycle Management (SDLCi) by leveraging proven test approaches ('Model Driven Delivery (MDD)' / 'Test First Delivery' ) within Agile (SAFe, DAD, LeSS) ATDD/BDD/TDDi or waterfall environments.
