My formative years to the present day, briefly...
Being born into a long established entrepreneurial family, on both sides. I have from an early age known the work business leaders go through; to build their skills, their brands and to create jobs.
My father influenced me a lot during my early years, he taught 2500+ post graduate business students and I had the pleasure to work with him in our family wine business. He studied industrial management at MIT and ran Flush Metal Corp with my grandfather in the 1950s and 1960s; until moving to the UK 45 years ago to start a new life. Even now at the age of 84 he continues to be a wealth of knowledge and a great inspiration to me.
Nearly 10 years ago I left my family’s boutique wine business to become an independent consultant. I quickly acquired the knowledge, insights and skills to leverage the use of my personal brand. With much resilience and focus, I contacted people, nurtured relationships and grew my network. I have built many opportunities and a few good friendships along the way.
Prior experience in premium retail, wholesale and export taught me business communication is about real world relationships, (avoiding techno speak and meaningless jargon).
Today I am grateful to have access to a portfolio of networked, Global technical expertise and experience and can create opportunities from empowering, encouraging and guiding people to take control of their brand(s).
My team and I are happy to deliver projects of all sizes and work within departments across businesses, covering all departments, sales, marketing, IT infrastructure and of course brand communications and design.
