For more than 30 years as a consulant I have advised across all sectors, practice areas and in most situations. At Headland, my current sectoral focus ranges from property and energy through to financial and professional services. As a consultant, I am committed to doing, as well as advising, and believe firmly that, whatever one’s experience, key skills such as media relations remain an important part of what I offer. Before co-founding Headland, I was the CEO and chairman of Fishburn Hedges, the agency I co-founded in 1990, which became one of the most successful communications agencies over the past 20 years. My ambition and motivation now are to help Headland to achieve a similar kind of success, but in a new and very different environment.
