James Allison appointed as IoD Ambassador for Tech in Norfolk
The Institute of Directors (IoD) has appointed EasylifeIT™‘s James Allison as Ambassador in IT, Digital and Technology, representing and supporting the views of the Norfolk business community. IoD Ambassadors are experts in their industries and play a vital role in the development of the IoD regions.
In addition to his existing work as a Strategic IT Consultant for EasylifeIT™, James will work alongside the other IoD Branch Ambassadors to provide local connectivity with IoD members and give a local ‘voice’ and presence to the Institute.
Based out of the EasylifeIT™ Norwich office, but working with clients across the UK, James advises customers who do not need a full-time senior IT specialist, but could definitely benefit from some structured, strategic guidance periodically.
James has a proven track record of helping business leaders and IT professionals to work in harmony and talk a common language. Coming from a non-technical background, he has a passion for demystifying the often bewildering world of IT. He enjoys working with clients to find creative, technology driven solutions that actually solve their problems. His skills include IT strategy, business continuity planning and IT project management.
EasylifeIT™ Managing Director Lindsey Hall said: “I’m delighted for James that he is taking on these new responsibilities. We really value the broad range of skills and experience he brings to EasylifeIT™ and I’m sure the IoD and its members in Norfolk will benefit from his contribution too.”
James said: “I’ve been a member of the IoD since 2014 and have always found it to be really valuable for training, networking and advice. I’m looking forward to playing a greater role with this prestigious organisation, passing on knowledge, as well as gaining new ideas and expertise from the wide range of companies and industries represented by the IoD membership.”
James’ 20+ years of practical experience are backed-up by an MBA through which he specialised in change management techniques. He is also a Certified Management Consultant (CMC).
