About Brad Dawson

📖 Summary

As an experienced project and programme professional I have led a broad range of projects and programmes of varying sizes and functional goals but typically have been business led, global and up to £27M (US$50M) Whilst my background (many years a go now) was running technology projects the last 15 years has been focused primarily on business projects and programs across a wide range of industry sectors. The roles have almost always been leading or overseeing delivery efforts where business change is significant and stakeholder management is a key component to success. I am comfortable leading programs with technology components at the core recognising that ultimately it is always for business benefit. Business transformation programs I have led include system implementations, overseeing multiple remote teams across different time zones, managing consultants and their teams (especially the big 4), facilitating workshops, conferences, stakeholder meetings, managing suppliers, RFP’s, managing conflict, presentations etc. I am well versed in the many tried and tested frameworks and methodologies (MSP, Prince2, Agile, Prosci etc.) employed in the identification, design and delivery of initiatives to achieve business goals. It is with this experience and my personable style of managing stakeholders at all levels of an organisation I am positioned well to deliver the desired outcomes for your organisation.Project Manager @ Led the transformation of the Purchase to Pay standardisation, automation and efficiency project (Vela) to 20 countries in three waves across Europe.
