Q1.  Did you always want to become a consultant or did you fall into the role?

No not at all, I wanted to be an Engineer.

I was lucky enough to get an apprenticeship with a local manufacturer as an apprentice Mechanical Electrical Design Engineer. Over the 8 years I had to learn every stage of production from RnD to Accounts it was a real eye opener to the real world of business.

Q2.  What makes a good consultant?

Having an understanding of processes twined with a great personality, people buy off people so your clients will need to feel comfortable working side by side with you.

Q3.  Do you feel you manage yourself well or is it a case of ‘the cobbler’s shoes’?

I love what I do and my time is managed closely. This is due to my amazing Executive Assistants they like to keep me on my toes.

Q4.  Are there enough hours in your day?

There are never enough hours of the day, I am often working at midnight. Not because I have to but because I get so engrossed in what I’m doing at the time.

Q5.  If you could magically stop your clients from making one mistake – what would that be?


Q6.  What do you find is the best way to market yourself?

Just to be yourself, all my business is based on trust and upmost good faith.

Q7.  What do you do to unwind?

I escape through painting, my art helps me focus. 

Q8.  What advice would you give a starting consultant?

Make sure you have an engaging digital twin, show your personality and networking with the right people is key to be an successful consultant.

Q9.  What’s your guilty pleasure?

Billions and hedge fund kingpin Bobby ‘Axe’ Axelrod lol

Q10.  What’s your goal for next year?

To build my sustainable head office.
