Worked on a variety of strategies in the past across multiple locations including abroad. pricing strategy based upon consumer needs was looked at in the Middle East along with a marketing strategy for well known International Brands that looked at consumer needs, brand competition, customer segmentation and promotional levers.


Noticing patterns in figures to really get to the crux of the matter. Sometimes the answer can be buried deep in the figures if only you knew which set of figures to look at and how. By utilising pattern analysis I have been able to spot trends in consumer and customer behavoir that suggests what can be changed and which lever needs to be pulled.


Mobilising a diverse workforce and also retention and motivation I have looked a t a variety of techniques to include initial recruitment techniques to hire the right person in the first place, initial induction, CBT, further training and development and career paths.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
