A background and extensive experience in professional services operations means that I understand the importance of aligning strong sales performance with operational effectiveness to drive profitable and sustainable growth.

I specialise in working with leadership teams to design, implement and embed effective, scalable sales methodologies to help empower and accelerate agency growth through a more effective and efficient new business capability.

My client-side experience as Head of Digital Strategy at Tesco Bank and position as MD of a leading digital marketing agency bring a dual perspective on the way agencies think about, plan for, and deliver their approach to business development.

Brand and Creative Agency CEO

Originally from a management accounting and analysis background, I established a solid foundation in understanding where commercial value lies within a variety of industries and organisations, specialising in professional services.

Subsequently implementing robust new profit focused business approval processes at DigitasLBi and then driving improved sales capability as Head of Finance and Operations at a performance marketing agency enabled me to support sales and client service teams to deliver strategic commercial value.

Since then I have supported multiple clients through sales transformation programmes and lead on the client services stream.
