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.

“I brought in Sally to fill a much needed role as technical lead to scope technical requirements, discovery of client landscape and solution architecture across a number of our biggest projects.
She faced all our challenges of new processes, untried new systems, and very murky beginnings to complex projects with utter initiative, tenacity and purpose, leading the way without needing major guidance. I could trust implicitly her knowledge, sense of direction and attention to detail whether defining new documentation standards when specifying integration points, writing up analysis of content management systems or holding stakeholder interviews. This versatility was essential for such a broad and high priority brief and I am pleased to say she delivered with integrity to the end and cared about the completeness and quality of her work. Her ability to jump in and work well with colleagues as part of a multi-disciplinary team was also critical to its success and established robust relationships that still endure.”
