Election statement

I believe I can be a positive contributor to the Learned Society Committee as I bring experience of delivering in four UK water industry price reviews. This has involved defining corporate service and performance outcomes. Strategic plans and roadmaps, with clear and attainable milestones, are defined and communicate to enable the delivery of the outcomes. All of this is achieved against tight timescales and with effective and timely stakeholder engagement. The Learned Society Committee can benefit from this experience in the delivery outcomes in the selected technical areas and of agile member-led projects.
