Dave Brooks

Vendor Risk Manager Nelson Risk Consulting

David has spent 26 years in the IT industry in a variety of roles and environments. The first ten years were spent in technical development in real time systems. This migrated into work on infrastructure and finally into management within the financial services sector. David is a man manager with strategic experience who has kept a technical overview. His MBA and MA have helped him to focus on more strategic aspects of senior management including human capital growth, strategy, risk and budgeting. He has been involved in large outsource projects and a major component of his current role is the management of vendors.  David sees the human aspects of risk to be just as if not more important than the technology aspects.  He has given a number of human-related RANT speeches over the past four years.
