I am the Director and Founder of Creativedge Training and Development which was established in 2001, following a very successful career in the retail sector covering both operational management and senior training and development roles. Since forming Creativedge, I have continued to follow my belief to make learning more accessible, to keep things simple (less is so often more) and to offer companies and staff flexibility and choice in how they learn. My favourite personal business maxims are: • Enthusiasm is contagious - so is a lack of it - so choose to work with like-minded people. • Be professional yes - but stop taking yourself so seriously. • Creativity always comes when you least expect it - or need it most. • Get out of the way and let your people perform. • As a leader, work on your business - not in it. • You can talk a good game all day - but others will judge you by what you DO
