HM Expert since

Thursday April 21, 2016


Over 20 years of commercial, business development, and leadership experience. I have had the pleasure of working with business and technology executives in global enterprises in the Financial Services, Manufacturing, Professional Services, Technology and Retail Industries to leverage knowledge, expertise, and resources to achieve their personal and professional goals.

A strong record of commercial development for a both SME\’s and Large Enterprises, specialising in the formation and delivery of highly effective sales, account retention and client satisfaction programmes.

Current role details

I feel strongly about how we, as a network, support our members in achieving their goals. In my role, I am as dedicated to the happiness of our C-level executive demand-side members as I am our highly rated, independent consultant, supply-side members.

I joined the HiveMind Network as I believe the traditional business models of research, consulting and resourcing are struggling to adapt to the opportunities afforded in the new ‘digital’ economy. Yet recognised the need for business leaders and executives to have access to expertise, insight, and experience to innovate and optimise their business capabilities has never been greater.
