Bio (so what’s my story?)

At a very young age, I took a job in a local menswear shop and quickly realised I had a passion & desire to communicate with my customers, who would literally wait to be served by me and come back time after time. Instinctively I would ask them ‘how does that feel?’ rather than tell them what they looked like, and I can see now why they were happy to receive a question rather than a statement. I stayed at the shop for six years, sharpening my skills – first as a salesman and latterly as a manager. But it wasn’t long before I felt the urge to head out on to the open road and put my new-found talent and energy to the test. I took a job as a sales rep for a pharmaceutical company and spent five years perfecting my sales skills and learning how to develop relationships.

My next-stop on the career ladder was L’Oréal Professionnel – the place where I began to really grow. I started as sales representative, before eventually being given the opportunity to become area manager where my desire for developing and mentoring people came to the fore. After 5 years I was given the role of Training and Recruitment manager across the professional products division of L’Oréal . Before long I was involved across all the professional L’Oréal Haircare brands around the world to assist in training and people development. During this period of time, I attended a business school in both France and in the UK. In addition I became a qualified NLP practitioner and a licensed distributor of the Insights Programme .

My L’Oreal years gave me a broad experience, top-notch qualifications and hands-on experience in order to step up as an external coach and trainer. Today I travel all around the world, working with teams in 35 countries! I am often quoted as being ‘not typically English’ and for embracing global differences.

I feel blessed to spread the joy of learning around the world, especially when this is accompanied by concrete and sustainable results.

We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the same.
