I am a Chartered Scientist with 40 years of laboratory experience and a Member of the Institute of Science and Technology.
I decided on a career change after having successfully implemented and maintained ISO9001:2015 in the analytical laboratories that I managed in the Faculty of Science at the University of East Anglia.
I qualified as a Lead Auditor for ISO 9001:2015 QMS and ISO14001:2015 EMS enabling me to operate as a management systems consultant, offering consultancy and audit services for the ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 standards.
I have been working as a Management systems consultant for the past year and, have an excellent working relationship with all the businesses that I have been involved with either as a consultant or as an auditor.
