I have over 25 years of project management experience, having worked extensively in developing packaging within both R&D and Supply. With my extensive knowledge of materials and processing along with a deep understanding of innovation and creativity techniques, I have established and led product cost optimization programs for businesses from the UK to Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Facilitation – My experience of facilitating idea generation sessions runs to over 14 years and I have developed tools and techniques over that time that are now validated for both cost optimisation and new product innovation.
Project Management – From managing the development of bottles and closures through to electrical devices , I have a proven record in delivering projects to launch on time, within budget and to the expected quality standards.
Packaging Development – I have been developing packaging since 1985 building an in depth knowledge of materials (plastics, glass, tinplate, laminates, solid and corrugated board) and processes (injection, blow moulding and thermoforming), knowledge that I now find highly beneficial for assessing savings opportunities.
