I offer strategic consultancy, undertake technical research and planning activities, and help to architect solutions. I make sure that technology and processes are considered as part of creative discussions, and aim to use them to improve user experiences. I particularly enjoy working on responsive builds, integration-based and content-managed pieces, and love working as a technical consultant who can complement other strategic disciplines.
Outside of specific project-based activities I help organisations with their digital strategy. This ranges from helping web agencies set up new teams, to acting as an independent and impartial advisor in order to review organisations' systems and processes to work out how technology can improve these, and to provide help with roadmaps. I'm able to undertake digital audits, advise on things like adapting to the challenges of responsive design, agile projects, which CMS and technologies may be most appropriate, or to help with identifying requirements. I can also train internal teams, aid you in creating briefs for new projects, promoting projects internally, and sourcing external help where needed.

“Working with Sally is an absolute pleasure and having recently completed a website project with her I have been thoroughly impressed with her abilities, professionalism and commitment to the task at hand. During the project Sally played a crucial role in helping to define user requirements, but where she excelled was applying her knowledge and experience of website development to offer a technical viewpoint.
Throughout the project Sally communicated proactively with the client, explaining her ideas and opinions in accessible and practical ways, a rare talent for someone with a technical background. This combined with her affable nature and positive attitude, ensured the project ran smoothly and I look forward to working with Sally again in the future.”
