Startup Advisor

Leadership Coach

Career Mentor

From Domino’s delivery, to British Army officer, to head of operations at tech startup Deliveroo where I enabled 500x growth in 5 years. I’ve managed people and operations from the frontline to the boardroom. Now my passion is advising startups on operations, coaching leaders and building teams.

Current focus

Startup Operations

Is operations holding your startup back? I've built complex operations functions fast and with limited resources. I'll work with you to identify blockers, review your operations strategy and implement a scalable roadmap to support your growth.

Leadership Coaching

Feeling lonely being the boss? Startups can lack the support of big corporates. I've built and led teams of all sizes in the military and startups. Now I coach leaders to take a step back and maximise impact with their most valuable resource: people.

Hiring Operations Talent

Don't know how to build a world class operations team? I've hired dozens of talented operations directors and operations managers into startups. I'll write your job descriptions, source quality candidates, assess core skills and help you evaluate leadership potential in interviews.

Board Advisor / Non Executive Director

Need ongoing operations advice? I advise several startup founders. As well as scheduled meetings, I'll be available at short notice when you need guidance on key decisions. I'll evaluate operational performance and share actionable insights with you and your team.

Career Mentoring

Just been promoted? Changing career? Going freelance? Starting a business? I've been there and I know first hand change can be scary! I'll work with you to take charge of your situation and improve your chances of success with tailored coaching and mentoring.

Past projects

Scaled Deliveroo Operations 500x

I was the 2nd employee in operations at food delivery startup Deliveroo. I built and scaled several ops teams. The CEO and COO also tasked me with strategic projects, including EVs and insurtech. Within 5 years we'd expanded to 13 countries, becoming a tech unicorn.
