You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I have a very wide range of experience from working as a Game Ranger to Headhunting Tech CEO's across Europe and Asia. But possibly some interesting moments were:.

>> At the age of 22 I co-founded a recruitment agency that within 12months had won the only national contract to supply Amazon.co.uk with staff in Great Britain. Within 4 months of winning the contract we had 680 people working at Amazon in Glasgow, Milton Keynes and Reading. Interestingly we not only sourced the staff, we housed them (120 houses) and transported them (fleet of 56 vehicles).

>> At 25 I was responsible for assisting US and Asian startups establish themselves in Europe headhunting very senior CEO's and Directors. Clients included Juniper Networks, ZTE and a number of other significant US companies

>> At 27 I was approached to become the General Manager and then the Director of Operations and Training for one of the UK's largest franchise groups. I resided over the training, growth and development of 400 franchise businesses that were spread across 5 separate brands.

>> At 32 I founded Multiman - Your Super Handyman, one of the UK's most recognisable Handyman Brands. Within our first year we appeared on DIY programs on Channel 4. We then trended worldwide on Twitter, were approached to do a reality TV show and gained a lot of publicity for our volunteer work during the London floods.

>> At 35 I founded Youngpreneur, Anyclutter and Treehousewizards.com and am writing a book on how to raise young entrepreneurs.


How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am pretty laid back and easy to get along with but have a determined attitude to business. I have found that the best co-founder relationships are ones that compliment each others weaknesses and boost each others strengths. Clear defined roles keep things from becoming complicated. I like to work with people who love a challenge, are practical and who are able to adapt to any challenges. Negative people work on my nerves and make me loose the will to live.

As an Advisor

My approach to advising entrepreneurs is simple. I get to know the person first. This will inform what the personality of the business is. I get to know the business, where it has been, where it currently finds itself and what the challenges are.

I become a believer in your business. I passionately identify key opportunities and lay out a practical and simple route to achieve your goals.

I do not believe in sugar coating problems and will be straight with you.

One thing is certain. I will re-ignite your creative juices and help you super boost your business.
