Welcome to the Waxtie Website

Helping you achieve a successful business

We are living in a golden age of opportunity, where it has never been easier to make change happen and help organisations leverage their products and services.

Our vision is that everyone who uses or needs to use consultative skills has the ability to create the perfect union between their technical expertise and the ability to communicate and influence others for the betterment of their organisation and mankind.

Waxtie Mission Statement

To enhance the creativity, ingenuity and drive through developing skills and transferring knowledge to enable entrepreneurs, directors, business owners and consultants to build growing, profitable and sustainable businesses.

Do you want to have a greater chance of success in your digital journey? Perhaps you have found that there is a lack of clarity as to why change is necessary? Is the lack of a reason why causing you or your organisation confusion, increased costs and decreasing position? Maybe your organisation or team is not on board with the transformation ahead and are causing delays, distress and distractions, potentially to the point of actively sabotaging the initiative? Possibly the information distributed is not being understood by the audience and is further compounding the problems? Imagine then that the reason behind the change is understood and those involved in the transformation can see the benefits for themselves personally, for the organisation and those externally to it such as customers, regulators or standards bodies. Your aspirational plan is being formed into a clear digital vision that your organisation can use to reimagine itself, redefining experiences, opportunities and associations. There has never been a better time to take advantage of these benefits. In a world where even the constant of change is being overtaken by the acceleration of change, to survive and thrive in the 21st century you need to have a digital strategy, have a clear understanding and an alignment with that of your customers.

Why did I write my first Book?

Digital Transformation: I wanted to share what I had learned about delivering successful solutions that drive business’s forwards to greater success and improve the lives of those working in them and realised that writing a book was perhaps the best option. Along with my colleague, we identified the Significant 7 Imperatives for Delivering Successful Change in Complex IT Projects, that came up time and again in all our successes.

Sharp Fit For Life

Would you agree that today, in this modern, digital, ever connected world, that we all live incredibly busy lives?

How many of you have followed the training and diet plans that you have found on the internet? And how long did those plans work for? How long was it until you stopped making progress?

That’s not a dig at those plans, I did this for many years and wondered why my progress was so limited. Those plans will work but only for a short period of time.

However, online coaching is the best way to ensure continued progress.

Take a look below at the options and feel free to contact me to discuss which will best suit your requirements.

But who am I? As an Author; Coach; Mentor; Consultant; Speaker; enterprise architect and strategic thinker, I believe in delivering successful change in complex environments and clarity to the most complex of my client issues. Navigating the complex and ever-changing IT landscape, I have been told I my pragmatic solutions deliver change and realise business benefit within every organisation, every time.

I love computers, I have done even when I was a small boy. They are so simple, logical, obedient. But not everything in life is like computing. My career has had its ups and downs, from the of having to make many my employees redundant to the elation of delivering the IT transformation making a merger or acquisition successful. The key for me though is continuous improvement, learning and implementing a diverse and eclectic array of subjects allowing me to not only translate between the business and IT but in many cases remove the divide altogether.

In 2016 I became an award-winning author of my book: Digital Transformation: The Significant 7 Imperatives for Delivering Successful Change in Complex IT Projects and have written for other organisations including the British Computer Society for their 2015 publication Digital Leaders. Whilst in 2017 was recognised as a Fellow member of the British Computer Society and given a global award for public speaking by the Professional Speakers Academy.

When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family exploring, learning and having fun. I am the Chairman for Lower Wharfe Canoe Club, a British Canoe Union affiliated club and recognised by Sports England’s Clubmark accreditation. On a yearly basis, I also participate in the International Snow Sculpting competition in Ischgl, Austria as a member of the British Snow Sculpting Team.
