    OVERVIEW

    OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT • STRATEGIST • INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT

    Aerospace and science are the burning passions that have driven my career through many challenges and experiences, preparing me to lead and contribute within these sectors. Along this path I have interacted in many projects exploring the opportunities and hurdles faced by growing public and private science programmes. With the combination of an operations management background, passion for Africa and an unlimited love of science, making a meaningful contribution to the further development of our knowledge economy is a goal I strive towards.

    I have been afforded the opportunity to develop significant experience in the area of operations management. As Business Manager within the largest science project in Africa and in deed what will be the largest Radio Telescope in the world, I address operational efficiency incorporating the design and development of organisational systems and processes as well as policies, industry development, economic impact and stakeholder reporting up to a Parliamentary level.

    The role has included the legal and financial implementation of consortia internationally to address the technology and design development requirements through the preconstruction phase. In addition, Business Management works closely with strategy and the international counterparts to develop the policies and practise notes on finance and procurement for the Treaty organisation under development.

    Liaison of technical and engineering teams is an ongoing requirement. Business Operations provides the foundational layer of the project on which the technology and engineering teams can operate. Ongoing communication and team cohesion is required to balance schedule, budgetary, scientific and political demands. The role incorporates the organisation's Information Technology Management, Knowledge Management, Risk Managment and Safety, Health and Quality (SHEQ) Management

    As a government driven project and a member of an international consortium, much policy development, strategic returns analysis and positioning is required and the Business Manager contributes to addressing these areas by working closely with the Head of Strategy, Executive Committee, Government stakeholders and the Project Director. In addition, the socio economic benefits from the science investment must be grown.

    This is achieved through many channels such as Human Capital Development and Innovation. The Business Manager drives commercialisation, public funding and market development for spin out technologies.

    Over the years, I have expanded my horizons to include my passion for the space industry with a focus on the new and challenging areas of space economics, policy and commerce. Through studies in the fields of economics, statistics, space policy and finance, I have worked on and researched the sustainability of space investment as well as feasibility, commercialisation, localisation and business development.

    I am a strategist with excellent interpersonal skills and thus am a developer of cohesive teams with improved process and efficiency implementation.
