About me

Career Coach - London

Life is full of twists and turns as they say, so the journey to Supportivity - my business - has filled me with excitement, passion and anticipation.

Supportivity is the culmination of a career in people curiosity.

The allure of self-employment began when 11 years ago I took out an HR franchise, which provided me with valuable lessons in how to run a small business. Prior to this, I worked in oil distribution (not as an oil baron), waste and facilities management. I also had a stint as a HR manager working in a care home run by nuns, whose commitment and dedication were second to nun (sorry, none). My career in people interest really got off on the right track (pardon the pun) when I worked for the rail industry.

Supportivity is the vehicle for me to exercise my core values (trust, loyalty, dedication, resilience, humour to name but a few) and to give something back to people who want to develop their careers.

The experience in life’s journey has been a rewarding one. That’s why I want to coach people so as their journey will take them on the road to professional and personal success and happiness. I am particulalry keen to coach those of you who are about or at the start of your working life.

The University of Life can only go so far, so I have gained qualifications in HR Management, Business & Executive Coaching and Mediation. I’m also qualified and trained to provide feedback via SHL OPQ, a catalyst for your journey of development.

On a personal level, I’m married to Jan and we have an extended family of four children and nine grandchildren, who I love dearly. I’m a long suffering Crystal Palace fan and believe me, you have to be resilient in supporting them. I also play a bit of drums and would welcome the opportunity to “jam” with a few musicians, who I love to hang around with.

If you would like to explore how we can work together, please send me a message to arrange a call, or phone me directly on 07730216214
