I think it’s obvious that we all share a heartfelt need to be connected and to be useful, and that we all lose out if we can’t bring this to our work.

Having spent 18 years working in consumer marketing and innovation for Irn-Bru, Premier Brands and Bacardi-Martini then running my own coaching consultancy, I understands from experience the pressures and rewards of the corporate and the entrepreneur’s life. I’ve worked in companies with a genuine long-term perspective and ones for whom next week might as well not exist.

Now I lead the Contexis Engine Room – designing and producing systems and transformational programmes that run like clockwork and are easily scalable.
