Managing Director of Stuff & Things

Tell us about your role

Like all successful orchestras, there is a conductor.  That’s me.  I am rarely involved in delivering any work anymore, and if I were in an orchestra, I would be the percussionist (the simplest job in my head!).  I'm a fierce friend and massively protective of the people around me, my wife, my friends, and my team.

What’s your favourite Conscious value and why?

For me, it’s “transparent”.  From day one, this was a value that I personally espoused.  If things are good, you tell your people, if things are bad, you tell your people. If you need to have a difficult conversation with someone, have it, but be nice.

Tell us about your life outside of Conscious

I am known to work hard and play hard.  Often found at legal sector networking events in my trademark trainers, jeans and orange shirt.  And I often get asked, “Do you wear orange on the weekends?”. A question I answer with a resounding YES. Whether it be biking around, hacking round the golf course and the annual trip to the slopes. There’s always orange involved.  Heck, even Tilly’s collar is orange.

If you always do what you always did, you always get what you always got.
