Carlene O’Meagher
Senior Business Analyst, Chapman Tripp

Carlene has been delivering IT Training to the legal profession since 1998. Carlene graduated with a BA/LLB from Auckland and practised as a barrister until her head was turned by computers. She spent six years in London working in the IT department at CMS Cameron McKenna, in various roles involving training and working with the business.  

Carlene has worked at Chapman Tripp since 2005, initially joining as an IT Trainer. In her current role of Senior Business Analyst, she delivers IT Training both in the classroom and via e-learning. She also works closely with the legal and support teams to understand their technological needs, ensure systems are delivered to meet those needs, and to help everyone through the change process so they are comfortable with the new systems. She remains suspicious that studying law may inhibit the part of the brain that can drive a computer, but she remains optimistic that, with a helping hand, this process can be reversed.
