I have also completed large scale SharePoint and file share migrations from on-premise to the cloud. As part of this work I have been responsible for developing and helping to deliver adoption, communications and training plans for many of the services included in Office365.

As an IT Manager I have been responsible for working with NHS Trusts to deliver the information technology required to support clinical research centres enabling them to conduct large scale longitudinal clinical studies.

I have successfully project managed and implemented Microsoft Office365 with a broad range of organisations in higher education, health, government and the private sectors.

In addition to my Office365 and SharePoint experience I have also developed several solutions using Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Dynamics 365. This includes a solution to manage participants, sensitive biological samples and social collaboration for a research project aiming to find out how microbes influence a baby’s immune system as well a case management solution for the NSPCC and Childline.
