As the founder of Quest Consulting Services a big part of recent years has been spent on building and developing the business. With an ever increasing team around me I am able to focus on the aspects of my work that I love - providing strategy, direction and support to SME businesses to help them grow with brilliant people just as I have.
Away from work I own a horse (Sunny) that I ride as often as I am able and I compete at Dressage. I enjoy cycling which is a pastime I took up just to complete a charity ride and I attempt to run although I prefer to be on 2 wheels or 4 legs.
I love to travel and have enjoyed trips in recent years to Las Vegas, Cape Verde, Caribbean and around Europe. Love the sun but also love to see the sights of the countries I visit.
I am also an Area Director Consultant for BNI for South Yorkshire & North Derbyshire. This provides me with an excellent opportunity to build my own networks but I also enjoy being part of an amazing team of dedicated Directors for BNI and I get to help local businesses grow every day which I love.
An experienced HR and Operational Manager, I have worked within Financial Services, Telecoms, Consumer Electronics and Recruitment.
The roles I have undertaken are very much operational HR where I have built experience in understanding Employment Law and translating this into practical processes and solutions for the business.
