Appearing in a variety of theatre productions and television commercials as a boy led me to an extensive career in advertising, working in senior management positions for big name international agencies such as Ogilvy & Mather, AC Nielsen and Saatchi & Saatchi. My career has seen me work in the UK, South Korea, Thailand and New Zealand and work for businesses in almost every industry sector.
In recent years I have run my own consultancy business, helping numerous start-up and established businesses to boost their capabilities in such areas as business planning, marketing and sales. I thrive on working closely with people to help them develop personally and professionally.
I have delivered training and coaching programmes for organisations such as NZTE, Whitireia Polytechnic, Ministry of Social Development, Hutt Valley City Council, Pacific Business Trust, Dale Carnegie Training and various Chambers of Commerce around the Wellington region. I also enjoyed the challenges of being Chair and a Board Member of the Porirua Chamber of Commerce.
Having moved to Waikanae in March 2018, I am keen to help the Kapiti Coast community develop by contributing to new and established projects designed to support the regions growth. The KEDA membership includes many well-qualified, knowledgeable and passionate people committed to growing the Kapiti Coast and I’m looking forward to making a meaningful contribution.
