IMPROVEMENT NINJA - SPEAKER - QUALITY PUNK - WRITER
"If you are looking for someone who really "gets" what quality is all about and can deliver the message with a sense of humor, Naysmith is your man. Think W. Edwards Deming, but with a Scottish accent." Dirk Dusharme, Editor in Chief at Quality Digest
WHO I AM
International Quality Professional - Speaker - Writer
As well as being a Quality Punk and Improvement Ninja, I am a Fellow and Chartered Quality Professional with the UK’s Chartered Quality Institute (CQI) and an honorary member of the South African Quality Institute (SAQI).
I have travelled to work in over 19 countries and with a world of experience in delivering levels of excellence beyond World Class, I have also had the fortune to be a key note speaker at conferences and branches of local Quality societies.
Taking a humorous approach to writing about business management and Quality, I am feature writer for Quality World Magazine in London, Quality Digest Magazine in California, e-Quality Edge magazine in South Africa, and I regularly blog for the CQI.
After achieving a bachelor of science in paper science and management, I have experience working in medical devices, oil & gas, industrial textiles, food manufacturing, and the aerospace industry. When not working, I enjoy photography, and spending every precious moment with my family.
