I am an internationally experienced business leader and a credentialed Leadership Coach.
In my 29-year corporate career (Schlumberger, Unilever, PwC), I have had assignments in General Management, Change Management, Corporate Strategy and Finance.
Having lived and worked in 7 countries across Europe and Asia I have developed a keen understanding of the role of cultural diversity and political sensitivity in truly global enterprises. I have, in difficult market conditions, displaced competition, entered new markets, strategically partnered with customers, led a transformation program and managed the change associated with this. I have also influenced organizations to collaborate with and partner local enterprise in a variety of ways as part of a coordinated national business development and corporate sustainability strategy.
Complementing my leadership experience with formal coach training with iPEC, consistently regarded as among the best institutes in the world, helped me obtain an ICF credential and set me on my way. I have, in the last few years, been fortunate to coach, corporate executives, business entrepreneurs, investors, educationists and consultants. I have also been able to work with leadership teams on themes ranging from Shared Purpose, Transformation and Behavioural & Attitude Management. Sharing my experience on stage, largely around Leadership and Transformation based themes, keeps me engaged as well.
I live in Bucharest, Romania with my wife and daughter. I enjoy travelling, sampling local cuisine and understanding social history…….and above all, I love a good, old-fashioned chat over a glass of something!
