I started my sales career 26 years ago and most of this has predominately been within the recruitment industry. During my time within recruitment, whatever level I worked at, I was always a "jobbing" salesperson and still am today. If you follow my LinkedIn and Facebook pages you will see that I undertake a telemarketing campaign for one of my clients on a Thursday and I'm always sharing hints and tips to make your calls more successful.
I started my sales training and consultancy career 6 years ago with the formation of The Sales Manager and more recently have rebranded to become The Sales Ace. I feel that my years of experience within sales and the fact that I am still very "hands on", helps me to provide relevant and up to date training, my mantra is "I'm a salesperson first and a trainer second". My proudest recent moment is being accepted as a Fellow of The Institute of Sales Management.
My favourite hobby is amateur dramatics which I started doing in 1994 (yes, I am that old!) and I can’t let this opportunity pass without mentioning my love of Gin; my favourite is Warner Edwards Rhubarb.
