    Summary

    After working within the electrical/electronic engineering field until 1999, I moved over to the Internet industry in 1999, running my own new media company initially, and later providing consultancy services as a project/programme manager. I've worked on all manner of projects from multinational sites to implementations for SMEs. I am PRINCE2 accredited to practitioner level, but also favour collaborative approaches where appropriate such as Agile & Scrum. Current project emphasis is upon open source applications such as Magento and various open source content management system driven sites and site integrations. www.ambientevents.com wwwmarketinggroup.org
