About me

I worked my way up yo a senior role in a global banking organisation and was seen as the "public face" of the credit underwriting team where I and my team were responsible for lending over £200m per month to small and SME businesses.

During this time I introduced numerous standard processes, procedures and systems across the Bank.

I've seen thousands of business plans and investment proposals, understanding the best way of securing finance for businesses of all sizes and assisting those businesses on a pathway to growth.

Using my expertise, I established a Learning and Development consultancy business providing e-learning and workshops for several multi-national financial institutions, delivering bespoke training both face to face and in a workshop scenario.

Whilst at Business Wales, I was asked to devise, write and deliver the flagship Business Growth Fundamentals workshop which supported Welsh SMEs by looking at how they could build their businesses, understand their market place and securing finance for business growth.

I am a Non Executive Director at Theatr Iolo, an award winning theatre company that performs across the globe and provides support to young, emerging talent.

I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Credit Management and an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Bankers.

What am I looking for

I am interested to help whoever may think they would benefit from a review of their business plan [or who requires help putting such a document together] and finances.

I am also open to working in any sector though I am passionate about securing the rights of young people and animals.
