An agile negotiator and an effective influencer, I’m experienced at heading acquisitions, leading mergers, managing disposals and securing finance. I have excellent stakeholder management skills. Presenting proposals and negotiating the way forward with senior colleagues, shareholders and bankers is a regular requirement and I’m used to working with multiple stakeholders. Have a look at the case studies that illustrate how I have used these skills successfully at a range of different organisations, including Times Mirror International, Thomas Nelson’s and Austen Cornish Publishers.
I am also comfortable working with organisations where the primary objectives are not commercial ones and in situations where the commercial and non-commercial objectives sometimes conflict. Read how I did this at QCA and at the Royal Academy.
I have throughout my career presented proposals and led discussions, often at Board level. I’m regularly invited to speak at conferences and seminars and I am adept at handling the press and media. Experienced in financial management, I have held full profit-and-loss accountability for several companies and divisions within a wide range of organisations with differing governance structures, including charities, private companies, multinational corporations and companies listed on several of the world’s stock exchanges.
