Head of Cost Strategy, Department for Education
Head of Cost Strategy for the Department of Education.  I am a qualified Quantity Surveyor and have work for contractors, advisory firms, and latterly client side over my 20-year career.  I am passionate about delivering value for clients, although this has not always been easy as there is always the question of affordability hanging over a construction project.  I have been in some tough negotiations in my time and have been on the winning and losing side of these at times.  Is there a better way to negotiate within the supply chain, are frameworks truly collaborative, can you have a win-win outcome?  SMARTnership might have the answer to what it means to truly deliver a win-win situation.
