I have been lucky to have had an awesome career in HR and business. I have worked with some brilliant people, in a variety of organisations and had responsibility for delivering really positive business outcomes. The main focus of my work has been helping business leaders, owners and managers to operate more successfully. I have developed programmes and coached a range of people to improve their own self-leadership, better manage their teams and people, or generally operate a more efficient business.

I have worked across a number of industries, including SME’s, retail, financial services, professional services, transport/logistics and education. I have particularly enjoyed working with a wide range of leaders, from Executives and Senior Managers, to frontline Team Leaders and newly appointed Managers.

My passion lies in helping people understand how they can be more effective and successful in what they do at work, and ultimately, more satisfied in their lives. I enjoy facilitating business outcomes, working one on one through coaching around a particular issue, designing and developing workshops, mentoring people through business dilemmas, or developing a range of solutions to help develop both leadership and management capability.

Outside of work I love my rural lifestyle and with my wife, play an active role in the lives of my two great kids.
