Meet in Person
Hello my name is a Paul Taylor and over the past 30 years I have worked in a number of different areas (such as change management, operational management, and career development) across many industries (such as financial services, oil/gas, freelancing, charity and professional bodies).
I love being a mentor and helping people to fulfill their potential. I have mentored several people over the past four years (covering areas such as CV writing, going freelance, start-ups, change management, knowing when to leave a job plus many many other areas).
Therefore I will be able to use my years of experience to overcome the challenges, issues, obstacles, etc that you are encountering.
