Summary:

Andrew is currently the Director of Knowledge Management and Capability at Reynolds Porter Chamberlain LLP, a large legal firm based in the City. He has previously held the positions of Global Director IT & KM at BDO International and Director of Knowledge Management also at BDO Stoy Hayward.

His passion is knowledge management, be he now links this into the deployment of an innovative social media framework. Which he perceives to be the bridge to link people and their tasks, liberating their knowledge and innovation to make tasks easier to complete and enhancing effectiveness and productivity. He recognises that technology is the enabler that needs to become an everyday tool, and that addressing the social and behavioural aspects are as essential as the deployment of the tools themselves in shifting use from early adopters, to the whole firm.
