The top five things you need to know about me and how I can help you

Let’s cut to the chase. I don’t want to waste anyone’s time so here are the top five things about me that I think you need to know.


1. Experienced energy professional

I have worked in the energy sector for over 40 years, 30 of which as a consultant. I’ve worked in virtually every type of industry and in 12 countries. Over the years I have worked for some of the world’s largest companies and organisations as well as many small ones. It is this accumulated and hard-earned experience that I will bring to bear on your project.

I pride myself on offering a thoroughly professional service and enjoy working collaboratively with my clients to help them achieve their goals with a minimum of fuss.

2. Focused specialist in four key areas

These are the four main areas that I am currently focussed on with my client partners:

Behaviour Change & Employee Engagement - Working in partnership with a leading chartered behavioural psychologist, I help organisations to save energy through the engagement and behaviour change of their people.

ISO 50001 - Helping organisations implement and attain this vital energy management standard.

ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) - Lead Assessor, auditor and Environment Agency compliance auditor.

Energy Programmes - Programme design and management to enable clients to design and run their campaigns.

3. Well qualified to set the highest standards

For those interested in this type of thing… I have a degree in Chemical Engineering and Fuel Technology, I’m a Chartered Chemical Engineer, a Chartered Energy Consultant registered with the Energy Institute’s Register of Professional Energy Consultants (RPEC), a Chartered Scientist, a European Engineer, an ISO 50001 Lead Auditor and an ESOS Lead Assessor.

I draw constantly on my qualifications along with the skills and experience I have gained over the last 40 years, to set the bar as high as possible for myself and my associates on every client project, no matter how large or small.

4. Independent advice

When you work with me, you will only get honest and impartial advice. I am an independent consultant with absolutely no links or ‘partnerships’ with energy suppliers, equipment suppliers, certification bodies or anyone else. My integrity is a given and I will work 100% in your interests with no hidden agendas, period.

But you don’t have to take my word on this. See what some of the people I have worked with have to say in My Services and Case Studies.

5. A people person

One to one, as part of a team or in front of a large audience, I throughly enjoy and thrive on interacting with people and regard my ‘people skills’ as one of my most valued assets. This is never more important than when working on Employee Engagement or Behaviour Change projects.

If any of the above resonates with you and you feel I might be a good fit with your organisation, let’s have a chat.
