About Me


I started with a background in Systems Analysis and during my career I have designed and developed complex computer systems, worked as a Technology Executive managing and contributing at Board level and for the last few years worked as an independent Consultant.

I have experience in a range of technologies and I strive to keep up to date with the latest tools, ideas and approaches.

My Management and Board experience give me an understanding of the complex and strategic decision making necessary in successful businesses and the effort and focus required to achieve long term goals.

I’ve worked with a range of organisations, from a small two-man business working from home to large international companies with turnover in excess of €1 billion.

During that time I have become experienced and proficient in a wide range of business areas many of which can be applied to organisations of all sizes.

Why I do it

Having experienced the growth of a small business from the start, seen and felt the problems associated with growing businesses and the satisfaction from making a difference, I enjoy being able to contribute to other businesses with my skills and experience.

I enjoy the hands-on part of my Consultancy as much as the advisory side, whether it is Software Design and Development, Testing, Support, Project Management, Web design or new IT projects.

Being able to help deliver a successful project and working with other people in the team to get things done for the benefit of the business gives me real job satisfaction.

What people Say

I worked with Mike Allerton at Working Pulse Ltd for some four years. As a small, fast growing, software company developing and marketing a sophisticated workforce management software system, the company needed versatile employees capable of providing an all-round contribution to the business. In addition to his excellent programming skills, Mike Allerton proved his capabilities in a number of areas of the business. These ranged from operational management to strategic business development and his previous experience also allowed him to offer valuable input and advice on product pricing and website development. During his time with us Mike also undertook a significant amount of customer support and training, proving himself adept at explaining the system in a clear and understandable manner and handling users at all levels of seniority and system literacy.

Former Chairman, Working Pulse Ltd.


I have worked with Mike over the last few years and during that time he contributed immensely to many areas of the business. His wide ranging skills, experience and hard work helped develop the business and its services. He provided valuable experience and perspectives on key business strategies while also contributing to the actual design, development and support of the business’s software solution. His skills made him extremely valuable at an Operational level including areas such as Marketing, Operations, Product Development and Project Management while his experience as a Company Director, adviser to other senior executives and ability to see the big picture brought additional value to board level decision-making helping business development and the growth of the company. His ability to communicate with all parts of the business and its customers, technical or not, allowed him to fit in quickly, support the existing team and his approach, knowledge and experience had a positive impact on other team members and their professional development. I would highly recommend him to other businesses.

During his employment, Mike was an extremely dedicated, hard-working and honest team member, he was also incredibly good within his discipline including software development, pre-sales consultancy, implementation consultancy, project management and internal MIS.

Mike’s positive attitude is to find a successful solution to whatever technical challenge he is given. He will set his sights on the end-goal to ensure it is achieved quickly & effectively and to a high level of quality.

I hold Mike in extremely high regard and would highly recommend him for any of the roles that I have mentioned above.
