A supercharged team I have been a part of

When I was part of the May Ball Committee at university, we took on the task of creating a standout experience on a tiny budget. We were proud to have the job of creating this once-in-a-study-lifetime experience for our peers. It was this pride and duty, combined with an ambitious team leader who pushed us all to think big, that got us working brilliantly as a supercharged team. This pride and purpose is something that I try to apply with all the teams I work with at businessfourzero, for all things, big and small…

Why I love what I do

When a business rallies, organises and energises around a clear, human-centred purpose, it makes people’s lives better - from the employees who find themselves more motivated by what they do, and enjoy it more, to the customers who have a better service and product experience and engage more deeply with the brand and business as a result.

A business result I'm proud of

Working with a major media organisation to reinvent their youth marketing approach mindset and departmental structure for a post-broadcast content-driven digital age.

Shifting the mindset of the leadership team of a very traditional retail property developer to enable them to make the business model changes needed to stay ahead of changes in the retail consumer landscape, and create truly game changing new lifestyle destinations… then working with them to create the vision and detailed plans for the first of these market-leading destinations.
