As an Electronics Engineering graduate from UCL, I started my career as a system’s auditor for Chase Manhattan Bank and quickly followed that by a move into Management Consultancy at Accenture. Then in 1990 the planets aligned and with three colleagues I was able to fulfil my ambition to found a company – The Berkeley Partnership.
My main motivations then were (and still are), to work with people (both clients and consultants) that I respected professionally and liked; to work in a co-operative and supportive environment that was nevertheless intolerant of mediocrity; and to work with clients on challenging assignments that really made a difference; oh, and to have fun while you are doing it.
Berkeley has provided me with the opportunity to work on wide ranging, diverse assignments across varied industries. Among other things, I have managed large transformation programmes; been CEO of a dot com venture; helped set up a mail order catalogue business and been non-executive Chairman of a communications consultancy – life is certainly not dull.
Outside the office I spend a lot of time wondering why Galileo's cannon balls may all drop at the same speed but different weight cyclists certainly don't.
