MEET THE TEAM
The Notify team consists of passionate problem-solvers who are on a mission to help Notify achieve its mission – to make a billion people safer at work. We’re collaborative, committed to working with our clients to develop Notify into whatever perfect looks like for them. Find out a little more about our growing team below.
Chief Executive Officer / Co-Founder
My professional background is with technology companies, in particular working out how software can help automate and improve processes. The technological revolution has provided so many benefits, and yet the industry continues to puzzle people and fails to live up to the promises we’ve made.
Our vision at Notify is to deliver simple solutions that can be picked up by users with minimal training and can deliver immediate results.
I’m no millennial – far from it, sadly! – but I have a strong desire to make a positive difference in the world. I genuinely can’t think of a better application for technology than in helping to make people safer and healthier.
We came up with the idea of starting a safety revolution: “a forcible overthrow of social order, in favour of a new system.” Our tool is technology, and our raw material is data. When a worker is killed every 15 seconds across the globe, this seems like a sensible revolution to start.
Please get in touch if you want to know more about us, or would like to look at how our platform can help your organisation.
Chief Product Officer / Co-Founder
My passion is helping businesses get the best out of digital technology. I specialise in creating software applications that solve real business needs.
I’m enthusiastic about using technology as a part of our everyday lives, to make a meaningful difference and for it to fit into our world seamlessly.
I built the Notify platform (with a good deal of help from a great team), and I spend my time speaking to customers and prospects to work out how we can make it better.
Even a click saved, or a screen removed, can make someone more likely to use a piece of software. And with Notify, our ambition is for every single person in an organisation to be able to pick up our system immediately, regardless of age, nationality or literacy.
Some of the most important work we do with clients has nothing to do with technology. It is in helping them to look at how they use our platform to bring in changes across their entire organisation.
I’ve won awards and government funding for the technology I’ve helped build but seeing it used to transform how organisations improve their health & safety culture is hugely satisfying.
Please contact me if you want to learn more about our approach.
