About Amnis (from our homepage at www.amnis.uk.com)
Change is one of the few constants in today's economy. For organisations to retain competitive edge and operate efficiently and effectively in the face of such change, transformation is essential.
Amnis specialises in helping organisations to successfully navigate through complex transformation programmes. We help commercial and public sector organisations identify and implement the changes necessary for success.
Practical, pragmatic and hands-on in our approach to implementation and training assignments, we have an enviable track record.
We have worked with a wide variety of household names, including the National Health Service, Ministry of Defence and ASDA. Our clients' enthusiasm for the value we deliver is illustrated by the fact that over 85% of our new business comes to us by referral.
I suppose because of the work we do with complex systems and teams, I am fascinated by complex topics such as Paleoanthropology (the evolution of human beings), Astronomy (the lifecycle of stars, planets and galaxies), Cosmology (the history and mathematics of the universe) and Psychology (what makes individuals individual).
I am proud to be a Chartered Engineer having started my working career in the defence industry as a engineer designing missile seekers (the intelligent bit of missiles). Subsequently I held a number of senior positions in blue chip manufacturing companies. Latterly I was director of consultancy for a trade body and ran major publicly programmes funded by the DTi (now BIS) and DfES (now DIUS) as well as for a range of Regional Development Agencies.
My work in transforming manufacturing companies led to me being awarded the Viscount Nuffield Medal in 2004 for my contribution to UK Industry.
In terms of my professional qualifications, well I'm a Fellow of the IET and the IOM and have a BSc, MSc and MBA. During my MSc I specialised in Concurrent Design & Engineering and during my MBA I specialised in Creativity & Innovation as well as Finance & Marketing.
