"From battlefield to boardroom"
After a career in The Royal Air Force and a few rapid changes of direction within the corporate world, I struck lucky and joined Ford Motor Company in the 1990s. I started in sales and quickly progressed into management and leadership by the millennium.
A natural step for me was to move away from the franchise network and to start working with other importers and manufacturers so I took a big risk and jumped into a leading consultancy company and broadened my knowledge and experiences with several sales, management and HR projects working with with the biggest brand names in the global automotive market.
In 2007 I decided to work for myself, with the vision of bringing development to life through the people which have the highest impact. Since then I have been in the enviable position to have a choice in the clients from high volume mass market brands and exclusive, premium manufacturers. However and possibly more importantly for me I could deliver training in the content and style of teaching and learning I preferred. I have been fortunate to have the choice of organisations to support and this enabled me to grow organically since then.
Being authentic, dependable and innovative has allowed me and a small team of like minded associates to deliver training with passion and integrity.
How I Can
