- Conducted first search in the sector in 1998
- Brings together exceptional people with visionary organisations
- Author of 'The 5 Stages to a Sustainable Business'
I suppose in some organisations I’d be described as the CEO, I play a major part in setting the vision and what we stand for and am very much an ideas person. I conducted my first board level search assignment in 1998 and when we launched Six Degree People wrote The 5 stages to a Sustainable as both a summary of my experiences to date and the journey that. I’m still very hands on and 70% of my time is still spent delivering on some of our most interesting work.
The other 30% of my time is focussed on our vision, what we stand for and helping our people do a better job and have more fun. I get to work with some of the world’s most innovative, and committed companies and individuals often looking to achieve something that hasn’t been achieved before, they have a vision and we help turn that into action. I have so many areas of work that give me enormous pride. I get true satisfaction 2 – 3 years after that piece of recruitment, that game changing advisory board we’ve built or indeed the 2 organisations we connected who are now collaborating to drive systemic change at scale are starting to achieve outcomes that our community recognises as being truly game changing.
