About Paul

Striking out for the first time after 12 years as a corporate - starting as an Analyst at Accenture, climbing to being Head of Technology at Tesco with a (very) short stint as a Senior PM WorldFirst most recently.

Main skills in Product and Programme Management, but can code and have managed pretty large dev teams in the past.
