My passion is helping start-ups to scale.
I’m great at really big cross-functional projects – I’ve done lots of them for big well-known companies and brilliant sponsors and have loved every minute.
They’ve taught me a great deal about the value and dangers of process, growing too quickly, and managing complexity. You can read a bit about them in the corporate section of my site.
My passion, though, is helping start-ups scale. The pace and challenges of a scale-up business are unique, and present unique issues which sometimes founders need help getting through. Success at these transitions can be make or break. I have been through many and love nothing more than adding my shoulder to the wheel.

If you or someone you know in a brilliant start-up could use some support getting to scale, or you are looking for non-executive or interim executive leadership for an exciting strategic project, please get in touch.
