View Company Profile


I help ambitious agency leaders achieve their goals, using real-world experience to guide and support them on their journey.

I specialise in the unique challenges presented by growth, helping to pre-empt the organisational and management problems that come with it. This frees leaders up to focus their time and attention on what really matters: doing great client work and winning new business.

I co-founded and grew an agency to 70 team members and £5m turnover in eight years, before selling to an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT). Previously, I launched a 24-hour television news channel for Australia’s national broadcaster in the space of seven months and led the restructure of its newsroom production centre.

This experience – combined with specialist training in psychology, organisational design, change management and accountancy – means I bring a unique skillset, including an intuitive understanding of what drives and what blocks employees, an innate ability to optimise team structures and workflows, a mastery of how to inspire and lead lasting change, plus deep commercial and financial knowledge.
