About Me


Experience

I help businesses develop the necessary foundations for growth, nurture their client relationships and develop strong working teams.

My experience in client account management and service development covers a variety of sectors. Using techniques that I have acquired through working in the recruitment industry and managing my own PA service, I am capable of managing both small and large teams to achieve business growth and product evolution goals.


Background

I started my career in a small private specialist school, this honed my client liaison and staff management skills. This has been crucial in my current position as General Manager at Harris and Porter Recruitment.

I have also managed staff teams at a number of the largest temporary events in the UK while achieving demanding sales targets and ensuring their safe operation.

Throughout my career, I have demonstrated my clear leadership ability through:

- The management and delivery of over 100 annual training seminars for adult learners
- Monitoring and maintaining client relationships with high profile public and private clients
- The management of my own business, Alive PA, and the development of its service
- Working in various successful business development teams

I’m an agile manager and team leader, experienced in communication roles and the organisation of colleagues and contract workers. I’m flexible in my approach to work and pragmatic when it comes to situations with which I am initially unfamiliar.

Below are some examples of my career history. If you are interested in working with me please do get in touch.
