I spend my time helping our government clients apply the power of new technology to solve their challenges in an increasingly complex and demanding environment. I’m passionate about using new approaches, such as design thinking, co-creation, co-innovation, rapid prototyping and agility, to help our clients achieve positive impacts for citizens.
As a Senior Technology Consulting Managing Director within Accenture’s Government and Health practice, I lead a team of dedicated professionals working together to help governments agencies become insight driven, digital-first agencies of the future.
I bring experience from over 18 years of architecting and delivering technology solutions for clients and have worked on several government transformation programmes, including at the Australian Tax Office and the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
I also lead the Garden, home of our Government and Health Innovation and Advisory Network, which is dedicated to shaping and nurturing the new ideas and innovation that will make a positive impact on people’s lives. This includes advising clients how to incorporate user-centered design thinking into their business strategies to improve outcomes and to adopt emerging technologies—including cloud, artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual agents and analytics—to help agencies understand and unleash the power of the New to build government services that meet citizens’, businesses’ and employees’ needs today and into the future.
The opportunity to see the tangible social improvements that our work with clients delivers is one of the most rewarding aspects of my role. That, and working with our exceptionally talented people and clients, are constant sources of inspiration and learning.
Outside work, I’m equally inspired by travelling with my family and seeing the wonders of the world through the eyes of my two spirited young daughters!
