WESTCLIFF STRATEGIC CONSULTANTS LIMITED / FreelanceMay 2009 - Present

Making things happen for high powered people using my extensive experience in law, growth management and financial public relations; delivering equity value.

I bring a unique blend of skills to the role of managing operations in a fast moving business. First of all, I am legally trained and understand the culture and practice of law. My time in financial communications allowed me to understand how to drive building a profitable consulting practice and how to deliver critical advice to clients in their most difficult and exposed moments. As a business growth adviser, trained in a methodology derived from fund management to drive intangible asset growth into SMEs, I have learned the mathematics of business – from team sizes, efficiency ratios to the number of touchpoints required to create client loyalty.

Heliocor LimitedJuly 2018 - December 2019

Heliocor is a regulatory technology company that wants to change the way the world does business: Restoring Trust. We want to be the industry standard in regulatory compliance and digital identity.

We help our clients cope with the ever-changing demands of regulation by delivering solutions that meet compliance and regulatory requirements, specifically in the area of fraud detection and prevention.

Our senior management team has decades of experience working at, and for, some of the world’s leading finance companies. We know that using technology to defeat fraud will change the way the world does business.

In 2015, we were commissioned to review regulatory compliance software solutions in the market for a large global FX company. In the course of this project, we discovered that there were critical gaps between what was needed and what was available in the market.

As a result, we were one of the first companies in the world to propose and deliver a real-time transaction monitoring solution to identify malfeasance and fraud. We have since stayed ahead through the introduction, implementation and innovation of leading edge technology.

Our Robolitics platform utilises Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Neural Network technologies in addition to the more traditional filtering and analysis tools. Today this architecture is in use within a number of large global organisations and monitors circa 15% of the world’s daily FX transactions.

Our Dokstor suite simplifies and automates onboarding/KYC/AML - all wrapped up in a single workflow supported by AI.

We are recognised as one of the 'RegTech100' and our software has won multiple industry awards.
