For 25 years, I have been leading high performing teams: 17 of those years have been in the banking and finance industry. I have held senior positions in Dixon’s Group, Lloyd’s Bank, and Together. I am currently with VAS Group as their Commercial Director.
I have managed clients with turnovers of up to £100million, across all sectors, and this has given me a unique perspective when it comes to running companies at all levels. It has also given me great insight into business dynamics and I have the leadership experience to develop teams with outstanding culture, resilience and performance – all attributes needed for success.
As a coach, I primarily work with SMEs, start-ups and owner managed businesses. I have a very strong affinity with financial services, retail, and sports & fitness businesses. I also work with leaders and managers who wish to improve, especially around mental toughness, goal setting, self-awareness and performance management. I am qualified as a Clarity4D coach. This allows me to support senior leaders and their team to unlock their full potential.
Within the property finance industry, I am a media-trained spokesperson: I have over 30 radio interviews under my belt, countless editorials and blog coverage, podcasts and three TV interviews on Sky Property TV.
Spare-time finds me utilizing my leadership skills as a triathlon coach. I have also tested my own boundaries by completing numerous marathons, triathlons, two Ironman events, the Marathon Des Sables and an English Channel relay swim.
