Parent Governor: elected by the parents

Term: 06.02.15 - 05.02.18


I have been a Parent Governor at Cranford Primary School since February 2015. I believe I have the right skills and qualifications which make me well equipped for this role. I have an MBA from the University of Reading specialising in IT Strategy. I also have a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (CAD/CAM and Robotics) and a PG Diploma in Operations Management specialising in Information Management. I’m a PRINCE2 certified Project Manager.


I am a Co-Founder and Director of Tech VAT Ltd. My key skills are IT, Strategic Management, Finance, Project Management and Operations. I offer my consultancy services to my clients in IT and Management. All in all, I have around 23 years of corporate experience. In my previous roles in companies such as IBM, CSC, Tech M, etc, I have mentored many graduates/apprentices and coached them to be successful Technology/Management Consultants.


I believe primary education is crucial as here, children build foundations for their academic future and careers. I would like to support the school in offering our children the necessary skills/knowledge required for 21st century demands. It’s vital that we ensure the school is providing a support system in achieving this.


As a Parent Governor I would:

  1. bring forth my corporate knowledge/experience; best practices followed in the industry;
  2. work enthusiastically with Mrs. Walia and her team in raising school standards;
  3. make improvements to promote effective teaching & learning.


I look forward to continuing to work diligently for the benefit of our children and our community.
