“Although I enjoy many aspects of my work, there are two elements that I am most passionate about.
Firstly I love the chance to work alongside clients in a way that makes a material difference to individuals and the organisations they are leading. Often this means working in partnership over extended periods, but at other times it can also involve much shorter assignments. Trust, integrity, quality, and ‘impact’ are my watch words here.
Secondly I love the chance to innovate and solve problems with my clients. This draws on my analytical and creative nature. There is always a better way, and no two assignments (or clients) are the same. The bigger the challenge the better!”
“Outside work the most important things to me are family and friends, sport (sailing, cycling, skiing, football, rugby etc) and rock music.”
