TAB Board Meeting

Your North Wales facilitator

We're only on this planet once, and I believe we should make the most of it. I am driven to help Business Owners achieve their life's ambitions.

Over the past seven years operating TAB in North Wales, I have worked with around forty local businesses ranging from ‘early stagers’ to a £20m turnover engineering firm. The majority of my board members have been in the £300k to £3m range - all keen to grow, but short on resources around them to help. They have been located throughout the region, in Deeside, Wrexham, Vale of Clwyd, Conwy and Saltney/Chester.

Prior to setting up TAB, I had a successful career in senior Human Resources roles working in automotive, electronics, and natural resources sectors, in manufacturing as well as professional services. This included ten years as a director of an SME which we built to 950 staff across 20 locations globally and a turnover in excess of £200m.

Alongside my client work, I currently sit on the North Wales & Mersey Dee Business Council, Chair the Regional Skills Partnership and the IoD North Wales branch, so feel well connected with matters affecting businesses regionally - from infrastructure and digital connectivity challenges to the skills agenda and growth deal priorities post-pandemic.

My personal goal is for TAB in North Wales to become a ‘go to’ organisation for forward-thinking business owners to gain the very best advice and support possible. Please view my video testimonials to learn more.
