After 11 years in professional football I retired in 2006 to setup CandidSky (www.candidsky.com). I currently hold the position of Managing Director.
Through football I've learnt valuable leadership skills taken from some of the giants of the game. Managers I've served under include Sir Bobby Robson, Kevin Keegan, Kenny Dalglish and Ruud Gullit.
Over the last 9 years I've worn many hats from salesman and marketer to project manager. However experience has taught me that my professional value boils down to the following.
- I'm the calm one
- I think big
- I focus on the 20% that matters
- I change my mind when I'm wrong
- I stick to my guns when I'm right
- I'm very competitive
- I love winning
- I value people and relationships

As software developers it pains us to see missed opportunities for automation, and ultimately, efficiency and cost savings. We’ve been particularly affected by our observations of the Third Sector. Time and time again we’ve seen unnecessary administrative pressure piled […]
When it comes to website optimisation, ensuring your site speed is up to scratch makes a huge difference. It doesn’t really matter what performance metric you’re basing success on – whether it’s goal conversions, revenue, search rankings, whatever.

Earlier this year, I made the move to agency life at CandidSky from an in-house marketing role. I came as a junior to help support and assist the rest of the team. In the months since, I’m proud of how far I’ve come, picking up new skills, advancing in my role and now running my […]
