Why a career in Business Development?
There is nothing permanent except change ! Business is built on strong personal relationships and I’m a strong believer on just picking up the phone !
My best (and worst) bits
Best bits – Enjoying the challenge of developing new and existing relationships and converting these opportunities into logical real life solutions for clients. (and charging fees!) A great service and transparent fees are very important.
Worst bits – Enjoying too much white wine and not enough red wine.
