I initially studied sociology, with a particular interest in Communication and Human Behaviour.
I subsequently turned my attention to serving my country (as a means of learning my own limits and what I could achieve). And so transferred to studying emergency medical science. And Subsequently served as an Advanced Trauma Medic alongside a number of specialist Rapid Deployment Regiments on operational commitments all over the world between 1991 and 2003.
In 2003, I was Medically discharged from the British Army, diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am extremely fortunate to have had the support and treatment to address this, and proud to share I now very successfully manage this well.
Since then, have worked at boardroom level with some of the largest brands on the high street. Worked in Change Management within the Pubic Sector (managing a team circa 1,400) prior to setting out as an Entrepreneur.
Within this exciting role, I have either bought, acquired or set up 4 of my own businesses. Scaled and exited TWICE, and now work as an international speaker (sharing my research into FAIL to SCALE), Business SCALE Mentor, and published Business Author.
