Few things give me more pleasure than bringing people I know together to create new working relationships that deliver value for all those involved. I have a vast and varied network of friends, acquaintances and business colleagues and an eclectic range of interests to match. This enables me to make connections between people and businesses in a highly creative and innovative way.
I strongly believe that personal success is at the heart of organisational achievement. All too often, senior business leaders get sucked into and stuck in the here and now. Sometimes, it is necessary to make time to stand back and reflect. To some, this may appear selfish or indulgent but it is absolutely key in order to achieve healthy balance. Once personal and business ambitions are clear, both are actively poised to pursue longer term gains.
If achieving this clarity of purpose is proving difficult, I can be the catalyst in any organisation, a sounding board, a devils' advocate. I can show business leaders how to broaden their horizons, how to create partnerships and relationships outside their normal networks and interests. Most importantly, I can help them to add real value, both to themselves as individuals and to their organisations.
Despite the fact that I thrive off the energy of meeting new people, I have an outcomes driven approach and put a premium on the need to be purposeful. With a background in investment banking and management consultancy, my core skill lies in my ability to create diverse and longstanding relationships and extend these generously and entrepreneurially to inject new impetus.
