Ian’s interest in leadership and teamwork was sparked many years ago, with his involvement in the Scouts, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the Rotary Youth Leadership Award programs. His early professional life focused on delivering effective Information Services to consulting clients, as a member of what is now Accenture, then as the leader of Information Services functions in both Mobil Oil and Phillip Morris. During his career with Mobil, Ian served as a member of the international audit team, and led a comprehensive systems update project in Lagos, Nigeria.
His work with Phillip Morris led him to support the effective management of information systems projects around the Asia-Pacific region, and his teaching of project management techniques gave him his introduction to the Ken Blanchard SLII® solutions family. He became accredited to deliver the SLII® and Building High Performance Teams® programs within Phillip Morris and then joined Blanchard International Australia in 2006.
As Managing Director of Blanchard Australia, Ian serves clients across a broad range of fields from education through heavy manufacturing, from financial services through pharmaceutical manufacturing and from fitness through telecommunications. He is based in Melbourne but serves his clients across Australia and around the world. His passion lies in supporting people to fulfill their dreams.
