After almost two decades with IT companies including Borland International, Canon (UK) and Microsoft Corporation, I spent several years providing marketing consultancy and global programme management to a variety of small and large companies. This included global management of a licensing programme for Microsoft Corporation.
In 2007 I became the co-owner of a small manufacturing business in Somerset that designed and produced products sold all over the world. Here I gained hands-on experience of running and managing a small business on a day-to-day basis. This led to further opportunities as a consultant, trainer and coach in the fields of business planning and international trade.
Having had an interest in personal development throughout my career, I am now providing coaching, training and support to owners and managers of businesses in the UK and overseas. I believe in the power of a team and the value of in-depth experience so I frequently partner with others to deliver the highest quality services.
Through my own experience and my partnerships, solutions include general business management, international trade, licensing and marketing.
I am a Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, a past member of the Institute of Leadership and Management, the Institute of Export and past fellow of the Institute of Training and Occupational Learning. My interest in personal development and training spills over into my personal life where I am a volunteer Scout Leader holding a manager role and role as County Leadership and Management Trainer.
Contact me for a no-obligation conversation to find out if there are areas of your business that I can help with.
I look forward to hearing from you!
