Geoff is a regular participant at RAG conferences and meetings and a long-standing contributor to the international risk and assurance community. This makes Geoff the perfect person to lead RAG’s innovation program.

Geoff has developed and continues to maintain and refine a risk map and catalogue for revenue and cost leakages in the telecoms industry. The map describes and categorises the risks faced by telcos whilst the catalogue goes into more detail, listing mitigation techniques that telcos have adopted in practice. Geoff’s work is effectively a mission statement for a significant upgrade to the scope covered by most revenue assurance teams. This extension draws on the experience of leading telcos as they expand the assurance remit to cover additional areas like contract assurance and network assurance.
