"Paul was my manager for more than a year and luckily I could stay in touch with him after he left to set-up SalesMentors.
Being able to talk in confidence to someone who understands the issues younger salespeople go through and receive independent, objective and expert advice was very helpful on numerous occasions. To name a few: these have included various workplace issues, considering job offers I have received, and general advice on the direction of my career in line with my personal and career goals.
Sure, I have trusted Paul because we knew each other and because of his professionalism but I would encourage you to take the plunge and arrange for the first free call to feel things out for yourself before you commit.
You have nothing to lose at this point but could indeed gain a mentor"
"Paul is articulate, organised, courteous and highly respected by his colleagues. His experience within business at all levels including the board room is illustrated every day through his positive attitude and the results he delivers. On top of this he is courteous, humourous and an absolute gentleman. It is a pleasure to work with Paul and I know he will continue to be successful. Very highly recommended"
"Paul was a great support to me in my first senior managment role. He has a real grasp of the balance sheet combined with a great commercial awarenes, both of which he freely shared with me.
Even now some years later I still enjoy talking about the market place with Paul as he always has a well considered view on pretty much any area of the IT or office equipment business"
"Paul was a main board director of the £200m organisation, who quickly grasped the recruitment business model and led his business development team with a positive spirit of urgency and energy whilst maintaining excellent relationships at all levels in the company.
He also led our International business division, achieving significant growth in both revenues and profits across continental Europe.
I would not hesitate to recommend Paul as a valuable asset"
"Paul was outstandingly successful at Harris Systems winning the largest deal ever signed by the UK company with BT.
He was and still is, always very professional in business life; with a thorough knowledge and experience in corporate sales and man management. Paul is also great fun to be with, highly entertaining and a man with great integrity"
"I worked with Paul through two years at iRed. I worked directly with him in a number of business development situations and I can wholeheartedly endorse him both personally and professionally.
On joining iRed I was particularly pleased to find Paul is someone who really knows his subject well and is willing to share what he knows so I found his knowledge and opinion invaluable at times.
He is a focussed, consumate professional who also has that all-too-rare gift of being easy to work with and hence would be an asset to any relevant organisation"
"I worked with Paul at Hitachi Data Systems, and have known him for over 20 years now. He has very broad experience in sales, sales management and board roles in a variety of technology organisations, both large and small.
Paul is an expert sales strategist, mentor and advisor who has built many first class sales teams and lasting client relationships.
He is an excellent listener, and will have a well-considered view on any sales situation.
He is positive and organized, and has a calm, professional approach, making him very easy to speak to.
I would thoroughly recommend Paul to anyone considering retaining his expertise and knowledge"
"When I made the step from a regional manager to the Ops Board, Paul was outstanding in helping me make this transition.
Paul was a consultative and professional executive and I would summarise his approach as follows:
· trusted mentor and ‘sounding board’
· good listener, calm and considered
· provided pragmatic, effective advice
· positive, easy to speak to, never appeared ‘out of touch’
· assisted my career - recommend as a mentor and advisor
I have really fond memories of working with Paul and that period of my career and would recommend anyone who is looking for a mentor to speak with Paul"
"Paul was great to work with.
Provided me with extremely useful insights and advices on a project I was conducting and about which I consulted him.
I highly recommend him because on the field he has proven to have great experience and his advices are never trivial..."
