Business Development and change
I am passionate about helping businesses succeed, whether that be helping them through difficult times such as changes within the business, or helping a business identify barriers to growth and helping them overcome this. My style is very ‘hands on’, engaging and importantly, adaptable. I have developed a professional, confident and somewhat persuasive approach to improvement.
I have worked in private and public businesses in the UK and Australia, observing and experiencing the issues they face. I was struck by the difficulties they had finding lasting solutions, which hinders growth and performance. I instinctively streamlined and implemented changes in all of the places I have worked in, such as changes to business processes and procedures saving the business time, money and increasing efficiency. This sparked my interest in Management Consulting and specifically, Change Management, and prompted me to learn more about bringing meaningful change to business.
To further develop in the consulting field, I completed an MSc in international business strategy (2017) at Linnaeus University, Sweden, and I am currently studying towards PRINCE 2 & Managing Successful Programmes under Bill’s guidance.
As a Business Consultant I am now developing a portfolio by partnering with Pearson Management Consultants on upcoming projects. I am very excited to work with Bill to gain valuable insights and lessons from him that I can inject into future projects. My first project, to improve profitability at a food retailer started in my first month initially with a clear steer from Bill who let me then use my creativity and skills to develop ideas and proposals. Much of the company’s work is in North Wales and as a local and native Welsh speaker I can bring my skills to bear in a manner that suits the culture.
