Over the last 38 years he has undertaken consulting work in all continents, except for Antarctica.
Neil often works in tandem with Fran Evans. Fran is a former law firm IT Director with over 25 years' experience in legal IT at three major firms, and has worked with Neil for five years.
Fran has experience in a variety of different areas including:
system procurement and implementation, such as PMS, DMS and CRM
IT Project Management
“Fran was introduced to us a year ago to manage our transition to a new office. She very effectively brought together the requirements of all our IT infrastructure & software providers. Fran provided clear and concise reports and prompt and well reasoned advice throughout. Her focus and attention to detail are impressive. We succeeded in moving into fully operational offices on time and on budget. We are now in the process of migrating into a data centre and Fran is managing that project with the same great aplomb and efficiency.”
