He also knows about management consulting, finance, people, business process, technology, communications, product, solution and services planning and delivery.

This toolkit has delivered significant strategic outcomes on time, on budget, across a diverse number of industries. Clinton’s ‘value-add’, service approach, excellent leadership, individual and team motivation skills have all led to success in ‘making things happen’ where others have failed. .He has also developed and implemented project, program and risk management processes and procedures in the financial services, telecommunications and defense contracting sectors.

This measures in detail the effectiveness of a project, program or organisational culture change relative to the organisation’s strategic goals, objectives and outcomes. Clinton’s ‘start up toolkits’ also reflects his detailed insight into online customer, product distribution and service portals, their maintenance and support services.

Clinton is experienced in corporate management, accounting, process re-engineering, internal audits, projects/programs, risk, change, quality management, financial and management consulting across many industries. He uses pragmatic people, processes, technology and communication strategies, plans and solutions delivery methodologies to help his clients meet and exceed stakeholder expectations. His skill and experience in design and developing best practice project/program and quality management systems, practices and procedures has enabled two world-wide IT professional services providers to achieve ISO 9001 quality management accreditation for their Asia/Pacific operations.
