About Me

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

Reach out if you want to talk business, marketing, tech or sport.

Contact myself or the team at CandidSky for support with Digital Marketing or Web Development.

Why SEO checklists fail: A takeaway from BrightonSEO

Last Friday a few of the CandidSky team took a trip to (not so sunny) Brighton to take part in BrightonSEO – the UK’s largest SEO conference – to listen to a host of presentations ranging from technical SEO to content, site speed, usability and psychology, and we weren’t disappointed. We attended some great talks, but […]

A True Leader: The day I met Queen Elizabeth

I met the Queen when I was 19. At the time she was visiting St. James Park, the hallowed ground of my hometown team Newcastle United, to meet with a selected group of young athletes from across the North-East. Alongside fellow team-mate Aaron Hughes, I was lucky enough to be chosen to represent Newcastle United’s […]
