A bit more info:
During my 24 years as a Civil Litigation Solicitor in a regional firm I have settled over 1,500 disputes, the vast majority before trial. I was an equity partner for 14 years, sitting on the Board and running a large department (£4.5m turnover).
On leaving private practice in 2014 I set up my own consultancy, helping businesses to run better, both strategically & operationally (incl. implementation and training on new Case Management Systems), consulting into over 150 firms so far (nearly all SMEs). Whilst in practice I was Compliance and Quality Officer for my department.
As well as working in the legal sector, I have worked in the logistics industry, lodging patent applications for a new invention and then taking it to market, including doing the sales (incl. phone calls & site visits). I assisted a company setting up a brokerage platform for manufacturers of green energy generation systems. I started my working life as a progress chaser in a manufacturing business. I have trained as Business Coach. I was a Trustee and Chair of the Communications Committee on the PCC at my local church for 4 years, overseeing many projects, including rebranding and the creation of the website.
I used to play in an Irish folk and Ceilidh band, playing the bodhran, tin whistle and calling for the dances. A keen hill walker, cyclist, Leicester Tigers rugby fan and passionate about conservation. I am half Swedish and married to an African – between us we have 4 teenage children.
