Coaching and training teams within business and marketing has formed a crucial part of my roles and the most enjoyable element in my career to date. With 17+ years in business, servicing clients with some of the world's leading advertising agencies for leading global brands in domestic and international markets, across B2C and B2B sectors, my involvement has contributed to clients' corporate and business strategies and the full marketing mix from research, NPD/product and price, distribution into sales direction. By understanding key consumer, user and stakeholder insights, designing simple but emotionally engaging and rationally supported communications, has helped campaign success, within a culture of enthusiasm and ethics. Now committed to teaching business, marketing, advertising and events modules across Regent's University London schools.
Other interests include political online blogging for the U.S. Democrats, U.K. Liberal Democrats via facebook, twitter and in the U.K. as a local area volunteer canvasser. Highly involved in social-business networking physically and online, it's crucial to keep updated with the latest marketing trends and developments, which further supports professional membership with industry bodies. Extra-curricular interests includes the NFL in the U.S., international football, international rugby, international cricket and the ‘IPL T20', as well as F1. Participation includes cycling, tennis, skiing, karting and continental driving holidays. I enjoy European, Asian and USA travel, cinema and music, restaurants, food and drink.
