After many years as Director of ICT at SCEGGS Darlinghurst, Sydney, Ian retired in 2014 from full time work and almost immediately began working, with others, to formalising MITIE. Since MITIE's incorporation in 2015 Ian has served as its President during which time membership has grown to over 1600 with members coming from all Australian States and Territories and other countries including New Zealand. MITIE hosts an active forum, runs 1 day conferences in NSW and SA and provides high quality professional learning opportunities for its members. Ian has always been very active in the broader community of those who manage ICT in education and he is widely respected and recognised for his work in this area. Ian was inaugural chairman of the organising committee for AISNSW’s ICT Management and Leadership Conference in 2005 and continued as chair in 2006 and 2007. In 2014 Ian founded Dashboard Consulting working as a consultant on a range of projects for a number of Independent schools and other organisations.
