I have spent more than thirty years involved with companies of all shapes and sizes, from small family businesses to global multinationals, with one thing in common; to understand what makes them tick and to drive improvement to be fit for the future.
Throughout my career I have been fortunate to play key roles in a large variety of business situations, from establishing start-up manufacturing facilities in the UK and India, living and working in Japan, recovering from insolvency in an SME to driving strategic change in a blue chip aerospace company.
I started out as an engineer in the automotive industry, I remain a chartered engineer and through various roles in manufacturing, external supply chain, business and strategic development I have retained the belief that the only way to understand what makes a business tick is to roll your sleeves up and get close to the action.
I have a particular passion for understanding the people side of organisations and have spent considerable time in recent years in technical and behavioural skills development as well as mentoring and coaching for high performance.
As a Business Doctor, the ability to use my accumulated experience to help SME businesses whatever their status or sector to overcome challenges, to grow and improve is an honour and a pleasure.
