CTO, BT Global

Speaker Bio

I am the CTO Business, heading up the team responsible for helping to shape BT’s customer solution architecture and strategy. Part of my responsibility is to predict technology trends and future customer technology roadmaps. I act as a trusted advisor for many CIO’s.

I am a veteran in the industry with expertise in designing, deploying and running some of the world’s largest next generation networks.  I have a holistic philosophy to network design, working back from business outcomes, user experience and applications dev strategy to inform the intuitive network, architecture, systems and service wrap design.

As well as sitting on several technology advisory boards, I lecture at Warwick University on Disruptive Innovation. I was also named as one of the 50 CTOs to watch by Global Telecoms magazine.
