What My Customers Say


About

Dr Michael Elliott CEng., FBCS

 

Throughout my career and my personal life I have supported people to achieve and fulfil their ambitions, whether this has been as a business leader, project management, mentor, coach or family member. I have enjoyed supporting my children and other members of my family in their personal lives and helped them achieve their goals in their academic studies, sporting pursuits and other hobbies.

 

My thirty year career includes engineering and research, software and electronics design, programme & project management, quality management and resource manager.


Whether it has been to bring about business change, successfully implement new systems or improve working practices, training, mentoring and personal consultancy have been vital to my success.  With twelve years training experience, I have hundreds of very satisfied customers.  You can read about some of these achievements in my paper, “Providing demonstrable return-on-investment for organisational learning and training” published in the “Journal of European Industrial Training”.

 

I am a Chartered Engineer and fellow of the British Computer society, BCS. My doctoral thesis is entitled “Achieving Business Excellence in Software Quality Management”, and I have had five papers published in three internationally acclaimed journals. A regular presenter and subject matter expert for the BCS at the Software Quality Management Conference. I have also co-authored numerous papers with the Department of Energy, Software Quality Assurance Subcommittee (SQAS) in the USA. SQAS have now been amalgamated into the Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG)
