Over 30 years of leading in the boardroom and doubling profits

Commercial Background

Executive Director: EGIAN

EGIAN represents 24 global accounting networks and associations.

It’s not all finance though, I lead and encourage EGIAN to develop opinions and policy on behalf of its membership, for submission to audiences like the European Union Commission and major accounting bodies. The aim is to present our membership’s position, in order to influence key issues within the EU.

You’ll benefit from my strongest skills in strategic communication, relationship building and leadership. In this instance, the role requires me to facilitate a forum for EGIAN members to exchange ideas, to collaborate and align their goals.

If your plans include international trade, I can offer insights into the most current opportunities, as this role has positioned me at Europe’s commercial centre. The promotion of entrepreneurship is high on the agenda – I hope to help businesses like yours carve your own path.

RSM Bentley Jennison

I first ‘spread my wings’ with RSM Bentley Jennison

I worked my way up the career ladder, heading up the firm’s development of relationships in Asia Pacific (it was a new market at the time) and gained deep management knowledge. Leading 450 staff across 12 UK offices in their Audit, Tax and Advisory Services division, I developed a real passion for helping others to reach their full potential. At the time, we accounted for about half of RSM BJ’s annual turnover – which we doubled every 4 years. No easy task but we were proactive with our clients – we offered valuable solutions that enabled them to become more successful.

I think it was here that I learned to embrace change – and got the bug for coaching.

Member: Transnational Auditors Committee

RSM recently nominated me to the Transnational Auditors Committee for the International Federation of Accountants.

Essentially, we protect the public interest by developing quality international standards. Between us, we support progress in all sectors of the profession around the world through strategic, regulatory, financial and entrepreneurial debates, which I both facilitate and contribute to.

Personal Background

You might like to know a little outside of my career and well, anyone who knows me knows I’m a bit of a petrol head! I built a car once, in fact. It took a couple of months to get the details right and all parts working in tandem, but it was hugely satisfying when its engine revved for the first time. I suppose it’s not dissimilar to your business – get the foundations right and you’ll find you can move up a gear more smoothly.

Trustee and Treasurer: the Beth Johnson Foundation (BJF)

The BJF challenges traditional thinking about ageing, and promotes recognition for the valuable role older people play in our lives.

I help to ensure that the BJF pursues its objectives, as well as their financial viability. As a leader in intergenerational practice, the BJF pioneers initiatives that bring together research, policy and best practice. Ultimately, we make a positive impact on the lives of older people.

Local Treasurer: UK Scout Association

Every year, the Scouts offer over 400,000 young people the opportunity for adventure; to interact and gain the confidence to realise their potential. I still draw on a great deal learned through the Scouts as a boy and have been involved with the association for 28 years since, as a local treasurer. Offering my financial and strategic knowledge, I want to give something back to an organisation that helped me and my peers to develop a sense of community and ambition.

You could sum things up by saying that I’m a family man, and cultivate family values amongst my business network – caring for the success of others and wholeheartedly supporting them. You can rely on me as an objective advisor to help balance your personal and business goals, so that one supports the other. To plan your next steps in business, get in touch.

As well as business coaching, I can help you with a number of other commercial specialisms, as well as part-time financial leadership. Please call to discuss your unique requirements.
