I’ve gone from strength to strength, representing a growing number of women in the technology industry, I don’t hesitate to take the harder path to success.

I’ve 10+ years of experience driving large scale cloud transformation in Public, Private and financial sectors, currently managing relationships for Deloitte with Cloud Infrastructure & Engineering Alliances working across multiple service lines. Leading the technical delivery aspects of a broad portfolio of cloud capabilities, which span numerous industries. I have more delivery “war stories” to draw on from being credible as a program delivery lead comes from years. I have established myself as a Thought-Leader in both emerging technology and new ways of working. Recently, I’ve got a chance to reshape a leading UK's biggest public sector client approach to change, I’ve defined and embedded a cloud transformation methodology and Remote working.

My specialist areas are Infrastructure as a Service, Software Defined Networks, SD-WAN, Network Security, AWS Connect, Data Analytics and cyber security. Since joining Deloitte, these skills have been refined to ensure that we’re best positioned to help our clients address their most complex business challenges, while executing their end-to-end infrastructure connectivity. This has been especially challenging due to the exponential rise in remote working.

My role now focuses on helping clients to solve and manage complex business problems with technology in new and innovative ways, and to achieve this, strong relationships built on trust are key – with my team, and my clients. I believe that technology has a crucial role in climate and sustainability, diversity and inclusion and always strives to make a difference, Also, being a woman and working in cloud engineering, I feel empowered because I know that women bring a different perspective to a project. Even though the national average is still only at 19%, being a part of the solution is exciting It’s also worth mentioning that not all cloud related roles are explicitly technical. A variety of skills are needed to build industry relationships and address other areas, such as the constantly evolving infrastructure, and legacy data centre challenges. Authenticity, creativity, leadership skills and a great attitude are also invaluable attributes to have.
