Summary

With 10+ years experience, I am a...

Business and People Consultant | Bestselling Author | Founder of 4 companies to date | Keynote Speaker at events, based in London.

My domain expertise is in People Opeartions (HR), Talent Acquisition, Company Culture, Business Growth, Startup and Tech.

 

-> Please bear in mind, due to my busy schedule with ongoing projects I can usually be only booked a month in advance and can only accept a limited number of clients.

 

I founded startups, written bestseller books, mentored London's startups in top accelerators and consulted to or worked in tech organisations.

To see what I can help you with, see "areas of expertise".

 

My Strongest Asset for Clients

As an aspiring Polymath, I have a variety of expertise and interest areas. I see this variety as a strength since it fuels my creativity, keeps me always learning and out of my comfort zone.

The positive feedback I receive most often from my clients is that I understand both their business (as a founder myself) and have a management consultant's expertise (with books and experience to support). This way I can combine the best of the two worlds to be a key growth and solution partner. I am also usually praised for my ability to think outside the box and come up with "great deals" that create win-win for my clients and their partners.
