About Kelvin

I started out in consultancy with PA in 1999, where I was involved in some of the largest IT deals in the 2000′s, including BP’s £750M telecoms outsourcing to Worldcom, Sabre’s £1.4BN sale of its infrastructure outsourcing business to EDS, and the UK MOD’s £3BN Defence Information Infrastructure Project.

I left PA in 2005 to found Newbury Management Consultants.  The company specialises in business improvement and growth, focussing on:

  • bidding for big contracts
  • building or rebuilding teams
  • negotiating contracts on buyer or supplier side
  • navigating the murky waters of public sector procurement

I have worked with large corporate clients including Steria, EADS (now Cassidian), the Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Justice and O2.  I’ve also helped a range of smaller companies including processfour, the Agile Delivery Network and Actica Consulting.

In 2017 I left consulting to work for O2 – the best client I had worked with over my consulting career.

Outside work, I am a cricket nut and bass player.  I have the privilege of fronting the Extra Covers, the finest covers band in the north Thatcham area (now that’s an example of niche marketing!).
