My values

A proud Brummie, I’m the son of two loving and supportive parents. Dad was a factory worker at ‘the Rover’ in Solihull and Mum was a school cleaner locally.

They both worked hard during some tough times but they taught me the importance of facing down and overcoming life’s many challenges; and to make time for holidays and spending time together as a family.

In addition to being great parents to me, they also supported neighbours with hot meals, drinks or just company which has helped me to appreciate the virtue of helping others. I feel fortunate to have had two brilliant role models who made the most of life and helped define mine.

It’s their experiences and values that I have continued in my own family life, in my work; and that I bring to my coaching.
