Alison is a Director of iESE with over 25 years strategic and operational experience in public sector transformation, specialising in major organisational change management and market management in commissioning of services.
Instrumental in the setting up of iESE as the first local government transformation social enterprise, she has a strong commercial way of thinking, coupled with the knowledge and expertise to advise clients in developing new business models and has supported councils to develop and establish new company structures.
Alison has worked with central and local government in Northern Ireland to support the development of the new organisations under the Local Government Reform and in the last 2 years has worked extensively with the new Chief Executives and Members, supporting them through the design and implementation of the Council organisational and governance structures.
During her time with iESE and in her previous role as Director of Procurement in the NHS Scotland, she has been involved in a range of health and social care programmes, working with Councils, providers, ADASS and Department of Health to transform how services are commissioned and how care markets can be reshaped to improve the offering to customers. This has included working in the Transforming Community Equipment programme and the creation of the Care Funding Calculator for learning disabilities and shared lives services.
Alison is passionate about public services and how the skills and behaviours of teams can bring about real change in how organisations respond to customers and employs her strength in interpersonal skills to build very effective relationships with people at all levels in client organisations.
