What I have learned

I develop and teach service management training courses and regularly present at public events such as IT Service Management Forum (itSMF) conferences. I am also a senior examiner for the ITIL exams and have been awarded for knowledge and expertise in information technology infrastructure. I became an authority on Service Management through vast certifications and publications across various ITIL measures, and I've authored books, pocket guides, and numerous white papers on the subject. Currently, I'm writing the next version of the ITIL service transition publication.

My background

My more than 30 years of experience in the IT industry began when I worked in technical support for OpenVMS and VAX systems. I progressed from hardware and software support to a range of different service management roles – including incident and problem management, availability management, capacity management and service continuity management. This breadth of experience led to my current role as a service management expert and consultant.
