Across my IT career I have worked in a number of countries and experienced life in other societies which gives great perspective in developing policy. I have 12 years experience of successfully driving policy through the States of Deliberation. My non-executive qualifications outline the requirement for a diversity of views from a diverse group of people to make strong, robust, challenged decisions as well as the need to work together collaboratively with others to achieve progress.
- Give details of any team or project activity in which you have engaged within the last five years where you feel you have contributed to benefitting your employment or community: (a) in your work (b) in your voluntary charitable, sporting or social life.
As part of a Corporate Social Responsibility program I am planning a re-use strategy for circa 50 surplus PCs to avoid them having to be unnecessarily scrapped
- What is the first thing (if any) you would like to change in the present practices or procedures (not the policies) of the States of Deliberation?
I don’t think new members should seek to overturn long established rules as soon as they get in before understanding why they are in place and the ramifications of changing them. This has resulted in the past in rules being overturned by new members only to be put back a few years later as they ramifications of the change become clear.
- What do you regard as the prime attribute or special skill you have to serve the island as a deputy?
I have significant experience of moving policy through the States of Deliberation in a calm and considered manner
- Given that matters can rarely be decided unanimously, are you able to respect the majority decision of a team or committee of which you are a member after respectful and informed debate?
I have always respected other members political views and behave accordingly with honesty and integrity
