Role at Franky Consult… An important role for me as Managing Director is to look after the team, our clients and develop new ways of working which will further improve on what we do. Having had over a decades worth of experience in all areas of business, I’m expert at seeing the big picture and coming up with really good ideas. I enjoy working with our clients at a strategic level and so will often sit in on board meetings helping them to understand where their businesses are now vs where they want them to be.
I get a real buzz from… I passionately believe that small business owners should have access to the same expert help that large corporates have in-house, but without the enormous costs, which is why in 2010 I started the company. I love watching clients faces light up when we hit on a great idea, or just seeing them more relaxed because they are not having to worry about as much makes me happy
The most fun and rewarding part of my job is… Going on client site and working with the growing teams. It’s amazing to watch as businesses grow from being a team of 3 to a team of 10 and helping them through that transition. And unlike working in corporates our clients often say thank you which is always nice to hear!
In my spare time… I’m a school governor and I’m re-learning the art of painting (badly at the moment)
