Plus over 25 years of customer centric, team building & leadership training design & delivery, alongside speaking & presenting at conferences & events.

As a former UK Retail Operations Manager for 42 lifestyle stores across the UK, I was overseeing & leading senior management, managing central operations & strategic communications whilst growing that business from 28 stores to 42 stores, advising senior executives on strategic initiatives & playing a key role in shaping & influencing the organisational goals to drive further commercial revenue.

As a former Area & European Regional Manager with luxury iconic brands, I was leading management & sales trainings, heading up regional operations, overseeing Visual Merchandising, implementing business turnaround programs & change management processes, driving a cost-focused culture, whilst ensuring delivery of best practice across the businesses to optimise performance & luxury brand experience.

In addition, throughout my career, I have project managed major £Million department store refurbishments, launched multiple standalone high-street stores in London, UK to tight deadlines, completed end-to-end design & build European branded concessions, formulated 100’s of  business turnaround plans & tactical initiatives for rapid growth, headed up key product & brand developments, innovated processes & practices to continually improve performance, presented numerous leadership trainings that I designed to audiences of ambitious future leaders, organised bi-annual company kick-off events, & managed a range of business store turnovers of between £10 Million & up-to £75 Million with a successful track record of results.

I have managed large teams of up-to 500 staff, coached & trained 100’s of leaders throughout my career & all along the way became fascinated with human potential, psychology & optimising your brain for success, to ultimately what underlies confidence, charisma, an empowered culture & peak-performance leadership.

I’m a visionary thinker, motivational, direct & to the point, as I cut through all the BS. I uncover those hidden blindspots with incredible accuracy & strategise with you, we set big goals, & give you the peak performance skills upgrade you need, alongside personalised guidance so you can become the leader in your industry or take your organisation to new heights! 

In my downtime, I workout & absolutely love running, having run the London Marathon twice, I’m now training for an Ultra Marathon!!!

Mostly when I have a spare moment you will find me curled up in a comfy armchair immersed in a good book. I usually have about 5 books on the go at any one time, so I can choose which one to get stuck into depending on my mood that day.

I try to read at least 50 pages a day & I think over the last 20 years I have read close to 1000 books.

Probably only 100 of them have been fiction the rest will have been either on performance, psychology, leadership, communication, motivation, behaviour psychology, Neuro- Linguistic Programming (NLP), hypnosis or neuroscience. This also means I get to pass on all the best nuggets of wisdom, methodologies, models of success & strategies.
