With over 30 years of accounting experience, including as a Managing Partner of a medium-to-mid tier firm, at a professional level I can provide guidance and advice on becoming an accountant, how to improve as an accountant and how to improve your accountancy practice.
In addition with a considerable range of personal and professional experience, be it my own or from clients, family and friends I am able to assist you in to move forward and face your challenges that are with you today and in the future.

I am focused on helping senior and aspiring leaders achieve significant improvements in personal impact and effectiveness. I believe that there are four key areas to focus on that together will enable you to expand your own perspectives, enable greater strategic clarity, better decision making, and more impactful execution: Active Understanding, Clear Goals, Personal Ownership, and Personal Brand Management.
Moving into a new demanding role? Experiencing conflict in the workplace? Working hard yet it seems almost impossible to make any progress? Feel overwhelmed by the decisions you need to make? Lack confidence to change your strategy and go for growth? I start by understanding your personal situation and remain actively understanding throughout the mentoring engagement.
A clear vision is built upon clear and actionable goals. I encourage a mix of small and large steps in order to achieve your full potential. Goal setting is an art, not a science. To achieve the biggest goals will require breaking them down into smaller parts. Throughout the mentoring engagement, clear goals are set, measured and reviewed during every mentoring session.
Mentoring empowers you to think strategically, and gives you the confidence to take control. During each mentoring session, you have the space to work on understanding yourself, what you want, and what you might personally improve to be even more effective. Each session results in you creating and owning your personal action plan. Being mentored results in you doing the “heavy lifting,” and so personal ownership remains yours throughout the engagement.
I can help you get on track and look good inside your business. I provide ideas and methods to reinforce your personal brand inside your company. In addition, I will regularly encourage you in different ways to improve your personal brand externally too – including techniques through social media engagements, personal development opportunities, and broader active networking engagements that strengthen your personal brand.
“As a first time CEO, the support is invaluable. My mentor understands the challenges that CEO’s face and provides wisdom based on his experience and knowledge. The relationship gives me a structure to deal with a myriad of things, and helps me deal with difficult situations more effectively.” Julie F, CEO, UK Charity

I am a passionate educator with more than 20 years experience in the academic and consultancy worlds. I was educated in three continents and have taught in 2. I spent the last 15 years teaching in some of the top universities/programs in the U.S. I specialize in communication, international development/ relations, and human rights include gender and youth.
I have a rich/broad experience in mentoring the young to transition from high school to college, and from college to their first jobs. Because of my multilingual and multicultural background, I have supported students in adjusting their skills to their interests and the interests of the market. I have also helped young people make education and career choices, provided support during application processes and most importantly built their confidence to deploy their strengths and assets to achieve their goals.
Because I’m a deep believer in gender justice and equal opportunity for all, I am very supportive of the young in their diversity and differences. I take great satisfaction in guiding the young generation towards achieving their best and I rejoice in their successes. Mentors have played a key role in my own professional accomplishments. I seek to provide the best mentorship I’m capable of.
