My name's Haydn Thomas. I've been a project professional for over 20 years and these days I actually travel the world educating, consulting and keynoting at conferences, and sharing my passion and knowledge around organizations and how they can do things better. I first started out as a business analyst when I was working at a bank many years ago, and we started working out how we could do things better through continuous improvement. What I found was that that is a value that resonated with me. It's a bit strange, I even do breakfast for my children and I'm constantly assessing how I can do things better.
I put the toast in, put the kettle on. While I'm doing that I'm getting the milk and the cereal and all those type of things. I'm constantly trying to work out how I can do things more efficiently, and how it will actually achieve the result and outcome in a timely fashion. It's a way of thinking but more importantly it's the way that I love sharing that knowledge with other people, and making sure that they understand the context around what this all means.
