Most business failures can be directly linked to a failure to have the right people and most successes to having the right people doing exactly what they need to do. I am a very enthusiastic, positive and focussed person and can be relied on to deliver what I say I will! I have a reputation for building excellent teams, lead by example and am both professional and ethical.

Ian really enjoys working with business owners, staff, customers and suppliers, to identify opportunities for improvement. He knows it is almost always People that make the difference between success and failure. Defining what skills &thereby who a Company needs is critical. After that, it's about attracting, selecting, training, developing and managing them which few Companies get right!

I like to help people and use my experience to helpclients and provide pragmatic solutions that can make a difference. I reallyget a great deal of satisfaction from seeing others meet and exceed their own goalsand believe business should be also be fun!"
