Ray held a number of Senior Management roles during this time. Due to Ray’s extensive knowledge and skill in this field, he became a sought after and highly respected counsel in the industry. This demand led to Ray launching his own consultancy business – EDSL (Enterprise Digital Solutions Limited) in 2001.
Ray’s dedication and expertise within the industry has made EDSL a prominent consultancy business, earning success and reverence within global companies such as Vodafone, Astra Zeneca, Sony, Deloitte, Yara and many more.
