Leadership Roles:  Finance Director, CFO, Company Secretary and Executive Mentor

Coaching & Mentoring Experience

I have mentored individuals and teams for over 20 years, across all levels from Business Leaders and CEOs, FDs and senior management, through to more junior team members.

I love coaching as it gives me the opportunity to help another grow as an individual and succeed, enables me to pass on my experience to help others, and give something back to others and society.

I’ve had the benefit of being coached myself by two great coaches, and have seen great benefits to my career – I have reached the CFO position.  I aim to replicate the benefit I received personally for others through my coaching.

Areas of Business Expertise

I have an entrepreneurial mindset, backed up by robust core financial experience and a hands-on attitude.  I have taken a start- up company through an AIM listing within 8 weeks, and raised funding from institutional, Angel and VC houses.

I have extensive commercial experience at Board level and can identify and debate strategic opportunities and add value across all business functions.

I have taken over from underperforming Finance Directors and rapidly improved business results.  I have turned around finance teams, designed and implemented systems and processes, established controls and monitored risks.
