Janet Wademan

Janet formed van Helsing Limited in 1995 after 15 years in Ferranti International and GEC. This 15 years saw a rapid progression from hands-on systems development through the management of multi-disciplinary systems development teams to her eventual role as Bids Manager, Tactical Trainers, GEC.

As part of her accelerated personal development programme Janet spent one year as Aide de Camp to the Director and General Manager of Ferranti Simulation and Training, an unique and invaluable mentoring experience in the roll-out of modern international management techniques.

As a result Janet is motivated by:
- sustainable business and organisational development
- progress through the practical application of R&D.

Working in van Helsing provides Janet with the flexibility to participate in a portfolio of activities in the private, public and academic sectors in order that complementary motivations can be satisfied.

Through van Helsing Janet works with organisations to enable them to deliver distinctiveness efficiently and effectively in an ever-increasingly competitive global market. This she achieves by a blend of hard and soft skills to analyse problems and synthesise solutions in context and time sensitive scenarios. Janet particularly enjoys working with multidisciplinary groups to elicit the winning solution.

Van Helsing's activities are underpinned by extensive R&D in a number of important technical, management and business development disciplines. The ensuing knowledge gained from this research is then embedded into van Helsing's product and service offerings for the benefit of its customers.

In her leisure time Janet has interests in classical music, visiting museums & art galleries and undertaking her genealogical research. Janet is a Fellow of The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).
