"The business of business is relationships; the business of life is human connection"

This quote by Robin Sharma sums up what business is about to me, connecting with each other on a human level. In a world of algorithms, hashtags and AI, human connection has never been more important.

…and I think I’m a pretty decent marketer. Which is good news if you’re looking to hire me to close the gaps in your marketing and help you grow your business.

Rather than give you war and peace on my career (head to LinkedIn for that) I thought I’d use this space to create a connection with you on a human level. I still believe people buy from people, even in a world that is becoming more driven by automation and AI there is always room for person to person connection.

People also buy from people they like, and if we have similar interests and values, I believe it makes business more interesting.

One of my passions is self development, learning and growing through educating myself about the world around me. As a proud member of READ TO LEAD, a community of growth minded individuals, I have learned new skills in leadership, sales, habit forming and time management amongst others.

Through READ TO LEAD I have expanded my network of likeminded business owners, enriching my life with their collective wisdom and friendships.

So, now you know more about me on a personal level, let’s connect on LinkedIn if we’re not already, and you can check out my professional credentials to determine our suitability to work together.
