'The Impacts of Technology on Driving Turnarounds'


Andy is responsible for leading Gresham House’s technology strategy and also advises investee companies on the use of technology as a driver of shareholder value creation.
Andy has over 10 years of experience in private equity and finance, latterly as an operating partner (value enhancement group) at private equity firm LDC where he helped portfolio companies grow and build value through the use of technology. Throughout his career he has focused on driving shareholder value in companies through the use of technology, data analytics and large change programmes.

The session will be an interactive and challenging discussion and will be structured in 3 parts –

  • Technology for driving top line growth – CRM, Front end intelligence, websites and social media
  • Technology to improve profitability  - Procurement, outsourcing, process improvements / case management, analytics
  • Technology individuals to make things happen – Typical profiles of successful teams and individuals, skills and experience to look for     


This event has previously run in both London & Bristol, and was very well received.


"Highly informative, relevant and engaging; enthusiastically delivered and pitched perfectly for IFT members leading change and transformation."

"A very valuable presentation from a very enthusiastic and expert presenter. The content was very insightful, informative and practical. Other than case study presentations from independent executives, this is probably the best presentation I have seen in 15 years of being a member of the IFT/STP."

“I thought last night was excellent and it was a really good session.  Andrew was a top-notch speaker who managed the session well, involved the audience effectively and provided plenty of useful and interesting anecdotes.”
