Careers and learning & development are my passion. I am the CDI West Midlands Regional Representative and arrange networking opportunities for local career professionals. 

 

Clients would describe me as open, encouraging, experienced, responsive and creative.

Outside of work I can be found enjoying time with my family, out in the fresh air - walking our two lively Cocker Spaniels, with my friends or doing something sporty - on my bike or on a river in my canoe.

Clients would describe me as engaging, supportive, thought-provoking and insightful.

When I’m not working, I recharge by walking with my dog in the countryside or laughing with good friends. I also spend a lot of time working on our 100-year-old house and getting creative in the garden. But I’m never far from a good cup of coffee!

My aim is to establish relationships with organisations so that their people can grow from the support, coaching and skills development delivered by the Career Seekers' team. We aim to support people with career guidance and professional skills development.

 

Our clients, existing and future, would say that I am personable, trustworthy and commercially attentive.

 

When I'm not helping grow Career Seekers' network, I am playing guitar, thinking of guitars, playing a guitar in a band, or wondering what guitar to buy next.

Despite being a Tottenham supporter, I am quite a football fan as well. I am FA Level 1 qualified and have coached my son's team but these days I am his transport and kit manager.

Family life, including two teenagers, one of each flavour, also keeps me busy (and grey).
