Hello! My name is David M Williams and I am an international consultant and author, based in Australia.

I have more than 30 years of professional IT experience, including over 15 years of senior and executive management experience. I am also an author with several thousand published articles in print and online. These include under my name as well as ghostwriting for tech company executives.

Besides developing strategy and running IT teams, I specialise in

  • building high-performing teams – and was recognised as the SolarWinds IT Mentor of the Year for 2021
  • turning around and transforming companies, large and small, with challenging IT and organisational constraints
  • vendor and contract review and management
Data and information
  • moving data into actionable insights, extracting secrets out of the toughest of databases
  • Establishing business intelligence platforms
