“I cannot recommend him highly enough: he gets the best out of people, and gets the job done.”
“During [the six month project] he brought strong analytical skills, and deep experience of technology outsourcing. He provided great advice, and helpful insights. A strong, productive team member … and a nice guy too.”
Commercial Programme Manager
Jon Brinsmead | IT Project Management Consultation Services in the UK
Following an IT career, that included time with IBM and Software Sciences, Jon trained as a management consultant with PA Consulting Group, starting in the late 1980s.
He set up his own consultancy business in 2010, and now delivers project management, procurement and consultancy services to clients in the UK and Europe.
Most of his work is in the IT and technology space, working across public and private sectors.
Jon founded the business with the objectives of providing high quality independent consulting services, building on his 30-plus years of management consulting, and 40-plus years of IT experience. Most of his work is solo (as an additional resource for your organisation), or in small teams, but he is a naturally collaborative person, and can put together, and manage much larger teams as needed.
Jon also continues developing his experience of designing and executing project and programmes, usually with a technology core. Jon keeps the flame of his curiosity about technology development going through work, some research, and attendance at IT events and conferences.
Working in major and minor procurement, Jon has bought and sold around £3.5 bn of goods and services since 1991. As a by-product of this work, he has created and delivered a commercial management training course for 50 IT managers.
