I've been an entrepreneur, consultant and mentor for over 30 years.
This site is designed to give you a taste of the sort of work I do, and of my experience.
I hope you like what you see.
WHAT I DO
Whether as a Chairman/director, adviser, investor, or personal mentor, a key tenet of my work is that I choose to work closely and creatively with people who are serious about being the best they can be.
For these people and organisations, I bring fresh insight, different perspectives, and over 30 years of UK and international business experience
I have particularly deep experience in sectors such as Financial and Professional Services, and with mutual and membership organisations. I am also a specialist in the management of the growth challenges faced by SME and family businesses. I have been Chairman of a cancer support charity.
I am a Fellow of the Institute of Directors (IoD) and was one of the one of the first directors in the UK to achieve Chartered Director status. I am also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
THE DAY JOB
The work I do covers a range of areas, but these mainly fall into the three key groups shown below:
I am Chairman of Eudaimon Holdings and I sit on the board of a number of private companies both within and outside the group.
Key roles for me currently include Chairman of CXE City, an exciting and innovative international business focused on transforming the client experience of Financial and Professional services firms, and Eudamon 10 which provides coaching, mentoring and leadership development to individuals and teams.
CORE ADVISER/ MENTOR
I have considerable experience of working closely and discreetly as a core adviser or mentor to individuals and leadership teams who are serious about achieving success. It is an area of work that can be challenging, but is one I really enjoy.
For the last five years I have worked closely with the Parker Taylor family in the transformational increase in value of their investment in the Keycare business, and am a director of PTF Locket which is the management company for some of their key business and charitable interests.
CONNECTOR AND INVESTOR
A key benefit long experience of operating at a senior level in the advisory and consultancy area, is that I have an extensive network of highly trusted and senior contacts of exceptional quality.
Access to this network has often proved invaluable to our clients in accessing the resources needed to progress developments - including financial investment.
KEY EUDAIMON GROUP INVESTMENTS
The Eudaimon Group has a number of investments where I am directly involved in the leadership of the companies concerned.
Three of these are described below:
