Most recently I co-founded and have been Community Manager of THINQTANQ, Plymouth’s first coworking space for small-business owners, freelancers and those who work for themselves. THINQTANQ is my third start-up business; my first professional consultancy was sold to a large US national company, the second grew from 6 people to over 100 in 6 years and has recently celebrated its 20th year anniversary. I have led business development and strategy implementation, created marketing messages and materials, recruited and hired key staff, set up satellite offices with consistent work practices and cultures, and written hundreds of successful bid proposals.
Through these growing businesses, plus time working for government agencies, large corporations, and charity organisations, I have implemented key skills and practices that help organisations keep their culture consistent and staff engaged, producing high quality products and services that clients love. One favourite moment was when a happy client described why he kept coming back to our company by using the exact words to describe our company that I used when recruiting new staff.
When your values and purpose resonate throughout every person in your organisation all the way to your clients: that is magic!
I hope the information you find in Brilliant Working helps you create that magic in your organisation.
