My Services

Enterprise and growing people are my passions. I work with business leaders to transform their businesses and break through personal barriers to success from 25+ years of experience of developing and growing business: start-ups to global organisations. I worked to grow an international IT services consultancy for Andersen (partner in 2001), built 2 companies from scratch, supported 2 others into the Tech FastTrack 100. I am convinced that a leader who fails to invest in personal growth will hold back his team and his business, so I now bring my passions to The Academy for Chief Executives. In addition, I directly support the development of a number of other businesses as a part-time member of the management team, spanning areas including consultancy, IT, recruitment, customer feedback and career development. Specialties: Building & growing successful commercial organisations. Bringing insight, innovation & challenge. Creating business advantage using technology. Developing leaders to achieve their maximum potential. Peer to peer learning, experiential learning, business best practice, personal & professional development, world class speakers, peer group sharing, executive mentoring.
