A little about me.

I endeavour to lead by example and have a very motivational, high energy approach. I thrive from a challenge and I am extremely driven, being hands on while maintaining an eye for detail. I’m quick at building relationships with people across all levels of an organisation to increase productivity and profit. Throughout my career I have managed and recruited teams that have delivered excellent customer service and exceed expectations of set performance targets. I have recently turned my attention to digital and field marketing, working with local businesses to get them online.

A bit more personal

Orginally from Cambridge, now living in Norwich.  You can usually find me driving somewhere between the two.  Other times, I love to spend time with my little boy.

I love to Xplr!

Sitting on a beach is not my cup of tea, well not for too long.  I love to explore the sights and sounds of the world.
