|Paul Sykes, Managing Director|
An entrepreneur from childhood with a background in accountancy and IT,
specialising in the development of services into highly valued "packages" that customers love to buy and you will love to deliver.
Very happily married, besotted with granddaughter Abigail, loves cricket, a "practising" Christian, and true Yorkshireman - Yorkshire pudding BEFORE roast
beef not with it!
Simon Warwick, Director of Franchise Support
I have worked in senior finance positions, moving into business consulting for the
past 15 years. As an experienced change manager I enjoy mentoring and coaching individuals and teams to improve performance.
Happily married to Jane with 2 young children. I love the outdoor life, cycling and walking and I am also active in several local community groups.
|Lynne Sykes, Director of People Care|
Lynne is enterprising, driven, pragmatic and unflappable. Her background could hardly be broader, encompassing general commerce, personnel, nursing, and sales support in the “big ticket” software sales arena, to name but a few. Many of her more advanced skills have been developed through necessity - having to deputise for board-level or senior management bosses when she was their PA or senior secretary. Lynne quickly establishes rapport and engenders trust and respect within colleagues and 3rd parties through her alertness, thoroughness, uncanny ability to anticipate needs and developing situations.
|Peter Green, Director of Technology|
Peter is a strategy and business systems transformation expert with a background in general and functional management and twenty years as a managing consultant, He has a wide ranging knowledge of IS environments, architectures and an insatiable curiosity for leading edge technology but always with a view to the business benefit and the organisational impact. He has previously held posts as IT Director for a services group, Head of Transformation Consulting for a major outsourcing company, a Lead Principal for a “big 4” consultancy, and various senior management roles in quoted and unquoted companies.
Scott Jackson, Senior Creative & Technical Advisor
I am a highly skilled front-end web developer and ex-director of an award winning creative agency with a passion for all things digital. Although I am from a print
design background my roots seem to have been firmly planted in the online world. With an array of knowledge ranging from customer focused websites to white hat
SEO techniques I am on hand to help with your creative and technical needs.
When I'm not playing with the latest techy gadgets I enjoy marine fish keeping and have a passion for cinema and music (live and in the shower!)
