MY EXPERIENCE

I have over twenty years of experience defining and leading global innovation strategies for multi-billion dollar product portfolios in Fortune 500 companies. In my leadership roles at Procter & Gamble and Coty Inc., I combined new product development and culture transformation to create business growth. I acted as a catalyst across a range of business functions, including Marketing, Manufacturing, Brand, Operations and Finance, with the aim of driving revenue, consumer loyalty and competitive advantage.

Having been through a number of mergers and disposals, I have led teams through post-merger integration, relocated operations and rebuilt organisational capability. I appreciate the importance of seeing things from other people’s perspectives, working with different personalities and varying levels of leadership experience.

I work with leaders and teams who recognise the need to adapt to new ways of working and who want to be more self-aware, equipped and confident to achieve the results that matter to them.

 

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK WITH ME

I am determined to support leaders to find the best way forward when managing change or a challenge. I come with empathy and curiosity to discover what may be possible for clients and work side by side with them as we explore new approaches and potentially push boundaries. I get a buzz seeing new leaders and teams make an impact that they didn’t necessarily know might be possible.

I’m a self-confessed fitness junkie, and have taken on half marathons, century bike rides and triathlons over the years. I appreciate that mindset and performance go hand-in-hand. I’m partway through my fitness qualifications so expect me to get you generating new ideas by moving and thinking differently at the same time!

 

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

Steve was my first venture into executive coaching.  We clicked immediately. Empathic and commercially minded, he framed the objectives at the beginning of each session and challenged my thinking throughout.  Highly recommended. This has really opened my eyes to some of the things that I can work on and put me back on a more even keel.”
