He has worked with strategic partners worldwide on many complex programmes including major infrastructure projects.

Keith has spent much of his career involved in large change programmes; many with leading-edge technology. The first 11 years of his career were spent in senior project and programme management roles and he has since specialised in Enterprise Risk Management where today he is globally recognised as a leading innovator and implementer.

Specific areas of expertise include:

  • Large-scale programme risk assessment and management
  • Quantitative risk assessments
  • Strategic risk management
  • Post Merger Integration
  • Key Performance Indicators and operational metrics

“I have worked with Keith for many years now and his knowledge of risk management is second to none. However, what makes Keith stand out from other specialists is that he understands how to apply risk management to real-world situations and always extracts tangible benefits from the process. Keith’s approach to risk management is the the most effective and practical way that I have come across of navigating the complexities of your business venture, removing the noise and letting you focus on what matters. Thoroughly recommended.”
