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

We started playing a few matches in the summer and, as expected from a team making its first tentative steps into competitive cross-company football, we took a few hammerings […]
Wow. What a year. If you feel the past 12 months has flown by in the blink of an eye, then you’re definitely not alone. Sometimes we spend so long chipping away at the rock face that we forget to step back and take a look at the result of all our hard work. With […]
Hold onto your hats. Back when I was a kid we got our first computer, which came with a clunky 14 inch CRT monitor. A couple of years later we got a second computer, but this time it came with a slightly svelter 15 inch monitor — that’s a whole extra inch. Bigger first… By […]
Never rush your website solution. Before you commit to a particular framework or content management system (CMS), always make sure you ask yourself the following questions: Will a WordPress website offer sufficient security? What levels of support are included in a bespoke framework build? Can I manage all aspects of the site without a website […]
