Focused on people development and improving profitability through top class procurement


I am motivated by seeing people develop, cross functional team work  and improving profitability through the use of a structured fact-based approach, combined with personal skills.

Over 25 years I have worked on strategic transformation initiatives focused on people development, cross functional team development and bringing superior performance and profit to companies.

"Keith is maybe the most professional procurement person I ever have worked with. This combined with huge people knowledge and solid approach towards people development makes him an super asset for any organisation needing procurement transformation, optimisation and serious cost out program planning and execution".

I believe that by combining the key aspects of high performing teams with a focus on personal development, performance management and simple procurement tools it is possible to significantly increase procurement performance and profitabilty.



The ingredients? Phsycological safety (speaking up without fear of consequences), reliability (delivering as agreed), clarity in what to do, meaning and impact


Developing and implementing a simple Vision, Strategy and Plan with practical actions that have impact


Taking full personal accountability is key to success. Telling the unvarnished truth and admitting your weaknesses is key to your own and team development


Simple and effective tools enable improved performance and profitability
