The combination of a strong passion for business and the love of watching people develop and grow within their own businesses, resulted in my becoming a critical friend.
My experience in the business world includes senior HR and general management roles in transport, retail and service businesses, as well as work in the charitable sector. I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience over the years, which I can draw on to help others.
I am highly experienced to listen, observe, guide and support everyone from top level executives to people who find themselves at a crossroads, unsure of where to go. Working together in confidential one-to-one sessions, I will help you become the best you can be and will always be there with continued support.
I am particularly good at using the power of positive thinking to overcome obstacles; we all have them.
People can quite easily get wrapped up in the day-to-day running of their businesses, which is important, but sometimes a little ‘time out’ is needed. I help create that time to think, allowing you to step back and take stock of where you are, what you have achieved so far and what you want to achieve in the future.
If you feel that a mentor is something you could benefit from then please, get in touch – together we can get you to where you want to be.
