Steps to Success"Every journey of a thousand miles, begins with but one small step." - Lao Tzu Book your interview
Who I Am
I am an author, international speaker, trainer and coach for the SME market.
I currently own 3 businesses and work with clients across the UK and abroad.
I have been in business for over 28 years and have honed my skills in the area of communication. I am a qualified iMATM practitioner and my Mastermind specialist subject is networking – having trained many franchisees across the world in the art and practice of networking and building relationships. I have also devised a 7 Step Strategy to ensure networking success at every event and produced a DVD on the subject, called ‘Networking NOT Working?’.
I have written 2 books, the first one ‘STEP UP From Desperation To Inspiration’ is designed to help small business owners get out of the ever decreasing circle that is currently leaving them feeling out of control. The second one charts the journey of my latest passion BeCollaboration. Called ‘Making of a Movement, The BeCollaboration Story’ it tells the journey to build a community with collaboration at its heart. I believe that collaboration can empower individuals to BE the change the world needs to see. This can only be successful when coupled with an understanding of context, – what is your WHY? Once you understand the contextual conversation everything becomes possible.
I am married to Alan and have two grown up daughters. I currently live in Hertford but a London girl at heart. I create my life balance by playing badminton, singing in a choir, a member of a local book club and avid theatre goer, both local and West End. Travel features heavily in my itinerary and my ambition is to create BeCollaboration groups across around the world.
It’s Your Business
I don’t want to tell you what to do, I don’t want to mentor you and say, if you do as I do you too will be successful. I believe that every business, although having many similarities, are also very different because of the person running them. I want to help you to understand your business and find out exactly what works for you. What are the bits you love, what do you struggle with, what is important to you, what options do you have? I want to put the fun back into your business and ignite your enthusiasm that you had when first decided to become your own boss.
