Q&A

The variety, and the ability to work on challenging and sometimes ambiguous projects! I've worked truly globally over the past 6 years, and I love observing company culture - and seeing how it can impact the performance of the business.
I feel I can offer a lot to a small business owner, as I grew up in a similar environment with my dad's business, and I understand the pressures and stress that can be there when trying to be successful.

My dad - he had a small business in the FMCG industry, and in the early days it was all about invoices on the table, and product samples everywhere. My sister also has a successful business, and whilst I went down the management consultancy route, I've seen the challenges and realised that I could help, if I wasn't in a full-time job. The consulting work gives me flexibility to take work that I want to do, so I can make a difference to the projects I get involved in, whilst at the same time making time for my family.

I feel my biggest skill is putting myself in other people's shoes...be it the client, or a team member being asked to work in a different way. I understand motivation and I have the desire to deliver real results for the client. I am methodical in my approach and particularly strong on stakeholder engagement, so I like to make sure the client is kept informed throughout any work I am asked to do.
