Over the last decade Greg has held senior delivery and risk management leadership positions responsible for a half billion per annum client delivery portfolio, focused on delivery performance improvement, all aspects of risk management and mitigation and working with supply side and client teams to turn around troubled projects and programmes.

Greg is passionate about developing people and has actively demonstrated this through his leadership and advocacy of a wide range of people development initiatives, including sponsoring future leader programmes, delivering leadership training, driving proactive action to achieve a leadership gender and ethnic mix that is properly reflective of the wider working population and for many years chairing promotion panels for future leaders.
