Work history

About me

22 years as a self employed management consultant specialising in Category Management, Sales and Marketing within the FMCG and food/grocery sector.  Run own Limited Company.

Previously 12 years with Cadbury Schweppes and Dyson Appliances in commercial roles in the UK and South Africa

I therefore have broad commercial experience and expertise drawn from the many companies I have worked with, particularly while consulting.

I have an MBA (Open University Business School) which included International, Creative management and Financial Management electives. My first degree was a BSc (Chemistry, University of Nottingham), so I can combine a commercial and scientific approach to management.

I served 4 years on the Open University Business School Advisory Board, representing views of MBA Alumni to help the School develop courses and benefits for students and alumni.

What am I looking for

Trustee role for environmental charity or with connections to Africa
