What do you do?

I’m really lucky, I’m a partner who works with great businesses which do exciting things I’m interested in.  In CP words I’m a Relationship Partner, and I’m leading the team growing our business in London.  I run audits as part of that Relationship Partner role but what is most important to me is helping businesses succeed in what matters to them.

Why do you do it?

I’m an entrepreneur at heart so the ability to grow our business while helping entrepreneurs grow theirs is the magic as far as I’m concerned.  Working in CP is rocket-fuelled, fast and fun and it’s amazing to be in a business which really puts its people and culture first and at the heart of everything it does. What’s not to like about that?

What kind of projects have you been involved in?

I’ve worked with loads of great companies over the past 25 years.  I’ve worked on audits, transactions, I’ve led a collaboration space, and visited some fab places doing international work.  I’ve been lucky enough to work in different sectors, from some behemoth but suprisingly agile pharmaceutical and life sciences businesses, to technology businesses (start ups through listeds), food and beverage innovators (visiting where the veg from your Sunday lunch comes from was a highlight) and a whole bunch of other greats businesses.

What’s on top of your bucket list?

Taking the family to an awesome balloon safari in Africa.  I’ve been lucky enough to spend time in Kenya and South Africa recently and I get the whole magic of the African continent.  It would be great to share that experience with the family.
