Benjamin Gilbert

Managing Consultant

I’m at my best working with clients from project inception and startup, throughout challenging implementation and transition phases and into live service.

Since joining DMW I have worked with BP’s Integrated Supply and Trading (IST) function to help define their 2013 Digital Security projects. My role included the definition of 14 strategic security engagements, to be delivered as part of a 3-year risk reduction programme. I worked with BP project managers and security experts, reporting to IST’s Chief Information Security Officer.

I’m ITIL certified, a PRINCE2 Practitioner and a ScrumMaster – but experience goes to show that key to the successful application of these methodologies is being able to adapt them for each client. For me, getting hands-on helping clients through complex deliveries is the most enjoyable part of consulting.

I graduated from the University of Plymouth with a First Class Honours degree in Computer Systems & Networks (BSc).
More broadly, my professional interests extend into Agile project management and application delivery, networking technologies and cloud computing.

In my free time you’ll usually find me walking the Kent countryside or planning the next DIY home improvement!

Previous experience

My previous experience with PA Consulting included test management, technical assurance and release management roles in central government departments and advertising.
