A true HR professional with over 28 years' industry experience, and a refreshing attitude to my industry that might surprise you!

An SME business owner of many years, I know just how important it is to have the right people in the right place doing the right thing at the right time. I also understand only too well the need for all businesses, large and small, to have ‘best practice’ systems and processes in place to help them recruit, manage and develop their employees, and to create an environment that encourages excellence at all levels.

A person with strong values based on an absolute passion for being the very best at what I do and a deep appreciation that people are at the heart of any business, I embrace entrepreneurism with real enthusiasm. I'm at my best when helping our clients to grow their business through their people, sharing my hard earned knowledge and expertise with genuine openness so that our clients can benefit from my experience.

What I am rather good at...

Recruiting for those key roles in your business: 

  • Operational
  • Marketing & Business Development
  • Finance
  • Customer Service
  • Facilities
  • General management

providing HR advice and support relevant to SMEs

...and I am also a qualified SME Business Mentor!
