Having caught the technology bug at age 9, I started my IT career straight from school and by age 24, was the Network Manager for Compaq UK; I also spear-headed their European Network Managers group to facilitate European wide collaboration.
Throughout the course of years, I have worked with most of the major technology providers and have seen at first-hand how high intensity, demanding workplaces can impact personal. It was this that led me to start my own business, Skybrook Consultants, where I can use my real life, ‘in the trenches’ experience to offer insight, guidance, and training on leadership, collaboration and, more importantly, resilience in the workplace.
I have previously worked with organisations as diverse as London Victoria Insurance and Hampshire Constabulary, UK, and, amongst others, have spoken at events such as Unicom Test Conference (UK), 2017, Agile on the Beach (UK), 2017 and 2018, ACE! (Krakow, Poland) 2019.
My style is always about injecting humour and fun into whatever I am speaking about. I’m dynamic, bold and engaging.
Additionally, Elaine runs a separate coaching practice to enable women to gain more control, feel less stressed and create a life of their own making.
