Professional business leader, board member, advisor, and kaizen pioneer, with over 34 years’ experience implementing performance improvement and operational excellence across the globe, in diverse organisations.
Equally at home in the board room, on the shop floor, conference stage or in one-to-one interventions, I have an engaging and empathic style that builds rapport quickly.
I was fortunate early in my career to gain extensive training in Japan and was an original member of Nissan's pioneering Supplier Development Team (SDT), credited with introducing kaizen, and what became known as ‘lean’, to the UK and Europe in 1990.
Globally recognised kaizen practitioner with a passion for systems thinking and keeping things simple. Because simple works.
Very much a hands on, pragmatic operations and supply chain leader, well versed in handling complex issues, demanding time pressures and solving things quickly.
I employ a people centric approach to change management and use a range of coaching and facilitation techniques when working with you.
...and for those that find it important to FadLabel things, I'm a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and licensed NLP Master Practitioner and Coach.
