I am retired from everyday working life having reached a long time goal to do so by the time I turned 50. I have recently enjoyed helping fledgling businesses and individuals with their success plans and would consider doing more of this. I strongly believe in self determination and working to a predetermined set of values. I am interested in helping people who have energy, integrity, courage and a sense of what is right for their community. Money is no longer a motivator for me, seeing others suceed is.
I have a bachelors degree in business and have worked for large & small NZ businesses and a US multinational. I have worked primarily in the manufacturing and service industries in Sales,Marketing, Consulting & GM roles.
People Describe Me As
I am known as a person who genuinely values others. I am goal oriented and look to instill this sense of prupose in others. My style is collaborative and seeks to enhance knowledge & learning. I am known for being very intolerant of those who are primarily focused on their own self importance.
I'm Proud Of
The success of my marraige and our kids. I have always sought to have a lot of fun in life.
The Way I Work
For me to be interested in helping, I need to be convinced that the person and/or organisation is looking to offer genuinely creative solutions and do so with passion and a rationale to do more than just make profits. My favoured role is that of an independent sounding board. I am candid and honest in my feedback. I am very happy to throw ideas back at you. I would be uncomfortable being paid for my time, but a bottle of wine every now & then would be welcome.
I Specialise In
Career, business and personal advice.
I Would Be Perfect For
A person and/or organisation that is just starting out or is at some kind of crossroads.
Reliable, Good Leader, Independent, Professional, Empathetic
Management is doing things right. Leadership is doing the right things.
