  • New Role, Who Dis?

    New Role, Who Dis?

    6 weeks into my new role; how looks this part of the world? So today marks the start of week 7 of my time at Deloitte Digital; and as I sit on the train down to London for the first day of a 2 day Senior Leadership away day for the Digital Consulting folks; I […]

  • Maximising the Lean Agility approach in the Public Sector

    Maximising the Lean Agility approach in the Public Sector

    First published on the 26th June 2022 as part of #TechUk’s Public Sector week here ; co-authored by Matt Thomas. We are living in a time of change, characterised by uncertainty. Adapting quickly has never been more important than today, and for organisations, this often means embracing and fully leveraging the potential of digital tools. […]

  • Neurodiverse parenting

    Neurodiverse parenting

    One thing I’ve noticed, since I started blogging and talking more openly about being Neurodiverse myself, is how many people have reached out to me virtually or in real life to chat about how they as parents support their children who are (or might be) neurodiverse. I’ve spoken publicly many times (especially on twitter) about […]

  • Looking for the positives

    Looking for the positives

    We’re all skilled in many different ways; when it comes to our careers; why do we apologies for our weaknesses, rather than celebrate our strengths? Another slightly introspective blog from me today, but one I think worth writing, as I know I’m not the only one guilty of this. As we move through our careers, […]

  • Becoming Product Led

    Becoming Product Led

    Recently I was asked how I would go about moving an organisation to being Product Led; when agile and user centric design are equally new to the company, or when agile has not delivered in the way that was expected. Before diving into the how, I think it’s worth first considering the what and they […]

  • Is it time for Flexible Working to actually become flexible?

    Is it time for Flexible Working to actually become flexible?

    Does the Public Sector need to embrace Hybrid working or risk loosing its workforce? The majority of job adverts within the Public Sector (and beyond) feature the phrase – “We offer flexible working” as a benefit. However, this flexible working is limited on how flexible it can be; generally its telling you they don’t mind […]

  • ‘The question is who… are you?’

    ‘The question is who… are you?’

    Why being a Leader doesn’t mean not being yourself. Chatting to a friend over the weekend, she mentioned her work had been encouraging her to go for more leadership type roles in the last year; but she hadn’t done it so far as she was worried she could never ‘fit in’ or be seen as […]

  • Talking Digital Transformation

    It’s something that has come up a lot in conversations at the moment, what is Digital Transformation? What does Digital Transformation mean to me? I always joke that it’s my TED talk subject, if I had one; as such I thought why not write a blog about it? What is Digital Transformation? According to Wikipedia, […]

  • How to change a culture

    When delivering digital or business transformation, one of the things that often gets overlooked is the cultural changes that are needed to embed the transformation succesfully. There can be many reasons why this happens, either because it’s not been considered, because it’s not been considered a priority, or simply because the people leading the transformation […]

  • What even is agile anyway?

    So you’re a leader in your organisation and Agile is ‘the thing’ that everyone is talking about. Your organisation has possible trialed one or two Agile projects within the Digital or Tech department, but they haven’t really delivered like you thought they would, and you think you can ‘do more’ with it, but honestly, what […]
