My career spans over 25 years, during which time I’ve advised some of the world’s leading business people such as Richard Branson, and consulted/trained major brands including o2, Orange, BT, Harrods, as well as numerous Schools, Universities and the Police.
I have an MBA and, as Managing Director of Zoodikers, I work regularly with CEOs and owner managers to help them achieve long term business goals such as a trade sale, IPO or simple growth and expansion
I am Chairperson (for South East) of my industry body – the Public Relations Consultants Association, and also train other agencies on their behalf.
My personal brand has led to me deliver two TEDx talks in London and Kent, as well as a weekly, live social media surgery on BBC Radio Kent for over a year, plus a range of international speaker engagements.
