Keith is an experienced programme manager and team leader, used to managing and delivering scopes around strategy, routine objectives and crisis situations – or what one client called ‘living in the middle of gory messes’.
He has worked in U.S.A., South America, Europe (Belgium, U.K.), Middle and Far East, spending 21 years for G.E. (U.S.A.), Guinness U.K. and Intel Ireland, where his ultimate position was innovation project office manager.
He helps teams and organisations develop and deliver better projects, either by improving their solutions through the application of design thinking, improving their execution strengths through good project management skills, processes and behaviours, or understanding organisations and how their dynamics can help/hinder change
Keith believes almost all teams are capable of surpassing the expectations placed on them, if given the chance to participate and contribute.
Keith worked initially in the Gas Turbine, Brewing and Semi-Conductor Industries but, since leaving Intel, has worked in innovation in many sectors in Ireland, including Food/Drink, Financial Services, Electronic Devices, Services and Education. A co-author of an Intel paper on innovation in software development, Keith has a strong interest in education. Innovation programmes started by IDL in Ireland have seen over 1,750 participants complete their courses over the last 7 years.
