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
