Kind words


Mentor of the year! (Durham MBA )

Coaching is wonderful!  Room to grow, but so relevant to the business challenge

Board, NED and advisory

A treat to watch at Board - calm, focused, developmental - quiet but powerful

​Great to work with as NED/Chair - coached for growth.

Great to have both technology, innovation,  and finance capability all rolled up into one 


Amazing clarity of thinking - directional and smart 

Wow! - end to end - the full product development cycle - every stage and international!

Lots of experience, proper interest in growing the business or the project.  Well worth having on team!

Smart when it comes to working out 'what next' for the business


Training was great - fantastic pace.

Upbeat, focused, high energy...great fun!
