In his roles, Rory has worked across the consultancy, communications, National Commission and business development teams and has coordinated the development of a new population health network.

In his ICS work, he managed client engagement and project activities and delivery. Rory supported and advised on the development of options for governance structures to reflect the changing landscape of the NHS.

Rory brings his ICS expertise into the business development team, where he analyses sectors, identifies opportunities and suggests client support.

Alongside his consultancy work, Rory is also heavily involved in the coordination of the National Commission on the future of public sector governance as, amongst other things, relationship manager with the commissioners and research lead for place, one of the key themes. He played a significant role in the publication of the commission’s first report and the delivery of half a dozen summits and various publications.
