Having successfully nurtured many partnership and national initiatives – including the project on information sharing, IISaM – Stephen was chosen to establish the Centre of Excellence and build a team which could help transform the public sector.
Previously, he worked for Leicestershire County Council leading its information and technology strategy and policy.
He knows first-hand how an organisation must approach its information and how technology supports the needs of a business – and the people who receive services.
Stephen’s experience has given him a strong focus on information sharing, and the culture, attitudes and internal processes which help make it happen. He now wants to help others shape their information sharing practice.
In previous roles, Stephen has led a research team at the Scottish parliament. He also worked as a town planner in Stirling.
