“I have worked with SPK for a couple of years now. I have not met a chef more passionate about what we do than SPK. He is amazing to work with and a true Professional. He always has a can do attitude with making sure the end consumer is happy. He is SPK what else can I say.”
The people who hire me are usually food start up entrepreneurs, product developers, chefs, food technologists and heads of innovation, MD’s and CEOs.
Whatever I’m working on, the thing I enjoy most is knowing I’ve made a tangible, positive and lasting difference to a project. My background in the food industry has taught me to expect that nothing is straightforward but my energy and drive allows me to hit the ground running and see right past the nitty gritty that can get in the way of achieving a goal.
I have developed a focused, driven speed and order in the way I work which saves time and money in the long run to my clients – I’ll still retain my sense of humour throughout too – the most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
I’m happy to take either the leadership role in a project or work as part of the team, contributing an authentic passion and authority. I can confidently get my ideas across to staff of any level within a company, I love people. I make sure to keep on the lookout for current food trends and major food news-stories and research so that I can adapt and incorporate it into live projects. I like to think laterally and creatively at things.
All food companies rely on an array of stakeholders for success. Sometimes, the budget for that creative thinker is just not there all the time and that is why I have chosen a consultants’ life. Use me as and when needed to knit together and inspire a range of customers, prospects, employees, suppliers, business partners and opinion formers.
You’ll notice as you get to know me that my creativity flows into other areas, like films, music, wine and cycling. Each to which I devote as much time to as my work, wife and family allow!
Always flip a negative into a positive.
