Examples of work

“Ed and I worked together to develop a request for tender document for a client information and management system for Windana and was engaged to project manage the implementation of the system. Ed quickly gained an appreciation of the complexities of the project producing a cohesive requirements list which greatly assisted vendor selection and implementation. Ed has excellent inter-personal skills and is highly effective at communicating to different stakeholders across the organisation. He undertakes work professionally and his style made the project much more effective and enjoyable.”

Geoff Fisher

Manager Finance, Windana Drug & Alcohol Recovery Inc


“Ed is a particularly capable manager of information, systems and people, who delivers great business outcomes. He has worked for me to rationalise platforms to establish and run less complex, more effective and agile systems that delivered at so many levels. He works well with people and is delight to work with. I would have him on my team again.”
