Originally from sunny Birmingham but now living in Oxford for the past 17 years, my career has been predominantly in hospitality, starting in restaurants and progressing to hotels. Outside of Splendid my wife and I are kept busy by our two great boys, who if arguing was an Olympic sport they would be competing/arguing for gold! In any spare hours my own personal development is of great importance to me whether that is through reading, exercise or studying for my coaching diploma.
The culture at Splendid is that of a forward thinking organisation whose passion is people. An organisation that is committed to its purpose and values which enables direction on a journey to become peak performing.
My proudest achievements whilst working for Splendid are twofold.
Firstly, the Vanbrugh House team winning the Splendid Hospitality award for hotel of the year, and then secondly my learning, graduation and continued actions from the Change Readiness leadership program, a course that has had a significant positive impact in my personal and professional life.
What inspires me? My personal objectives inspire me, and helping others understand and fulfil theirs.
