HomeHalo is app driven internet control for your family

Turning an idea into a product that protects the family

David worked with inventor, Nick Gebbett, in starting his venture “HomeHalo”. In the project we worked together to define the proposition using strong market research and creative problem solving.  David implemented agile project management techniques to develop the App, software, firmware and hardware. We helped recruit the team, find funding and successfully launch the innovation.

“David worked with me for two years on developing HomeHalo from proving the market for the proposition through to commercialisation showing a great breadth of skills as a Project Manager and business coach in a number of spheres.” Nick Gebbett, CEO HomeHalo

We project manage and administer collaborative projects, with particular emphasis on data management.


On behalf of our client, EuroGeographics, an association of the National Mapping and Cadastral agencies, we project managed the award winning “ESDIN” project.  Together with 12 of the official national mapping organisations of Europe plus commercial developers and academics we built the foundations of a European Location Framework.  A European Spatial Data Infrastructure built from all the National ones.  See testimonials from our wide network of academics, associations, government agencies and commercial organisations in the European Location sector.
