I am currently a consultant with Infosys Portland (previously the Portland Group), the leading Procurement Consulting firm in Australia and part of the global technology and outsourcing firm Infosys.
My work has spanned rapid procurement diagnostics, rapid sourcing, negotiation planning, identification and execution of continuous improvement initiatives, category management, change management, information management, system implementation and training delivery/development.
I have worked on and still sit on boards of various not-for-profit organisations supporting business development and have led teams in two (albeit unsuccessful) technology start ups (eBay for restaurants and an experience marketplace).
I have experience in sales, working for a total of three years with various telecommunication companies in Australia in both consumer and business sales and supported sales executives at a global consulting firm conduct a national technology and infrastructure outsourcing sales campaign.
I now have a clear focus in developing my skill set in the Supply Chain and Procurement space and have proven results in identifying cost saving opportunities and optimizing processes which have resulted in significant cost and time savings for my clients ($XXm).
I have a business degree majoring in Corporate Finance, Investment Finance and Business Law from the University of Western Australia.
