I am an author, speaker, trainer and business consultant, with over 30 years experience in starting and growing businesses in various industry's in the United Kingdom and South Africa. During this time, I have experienced both amazing success and almost disastrous failure and have learned from both.
In 2011, my wife and I relocated to the United Kingdom to live and work. Although at the time, I had no business connections in the city or in the country, within a short space of time I began to grow my network and The Audacious Company, which is focused on leadership, management, sales, LinkedIn and presentations skills training, almost exclusively using LinkedIn. Over the past few years, I have used the platform to grow The Audacious Company mainly into the professional services environment, which includes the legal, accounting, architectural & IFA markets.
Using LinkedIn as my primary source of marketing, new client development and retention of my existing clients, has pushed me to learn not only the basics of the platform, but also what the best strategies for connecting and engaging are.
I am the author of 'Audacious Leadership', founder of The Prepare For Awesome podcast and have developed numerous training programs in the leadership, management, sales and presentation skills environments, which have been delivered to clients across the United kingdom, into Europe, Africa, the Middle and Far East.. The Prepare For Awesome podcast is a motivational program which is available every Thursday at 3pm UTC.
I am a sports fan, particularly enjoy good football, including the American and Australian version although I don't understand their rules, rugby, cricket, Formula 1 and motorcycle racing. I live in Exeter with my incredible, encouraging and motivating wife, Debbie and our little dog Button.
