6ft 2 and with breathtaking good looks…
Oh wait, I’m 5ft 2 and bald.
You want a front seat window into my mid life crisis?
You’re in the right place!
My Approach To Business
I’ve worked my way up the corporate ladder. More a greasy pole than a ladder, but let’s not be pedantic – whatever it was, I was at the peak.
And then one day, I woke up and decided I’m sick of it all.
So I quit.
I was the CEO of one of the fastest growing companies in the UK and just like that, I resigned.
I went on a backpacking trip around Europe, and there I found the love of my life.
Chapter Two: Our Story
They say behind every good man is a good woman and I agree.
Susy inspired me. She motivated me. I’m not sure why I’m talking in the past tense. She still does.
(Now do you see why my damn book has taken so long to write? Damn you tenses!)
Anyway, where was I?
Oh yea, Susy.
So, having convinced her to leave her native Amsterdam to join me back in sunny old Blighty, back we came here. Only there was a problem.
I had no job. Neither did she.
So back I went, forced by necessity, into the corporate rat race.
That Brings Us More Or Less To Today
So what now?
Happily ever after?
Well, kinda. This time, rather than join a profit hungry conglomerate I’ve joined a fantastic boutique consultancy.
They know I’m a maverick and they embrace it.
In fact, the owner Brenda was the one who encouraged me to set up this blog.
“People need to hear your hilarious take on things” is how she put it (I may be paraphrasing slightly).
But none the less, here we are, here’s my blog.
I figure I may as well try to get a few more after dinner speaking gigs out of it whilst I’m here.
