The force behind the JUNGLE…

I am a husband, father of four and grandfather to one; born in 68 I grew up on the outskirts of London in the UK. I have always had a creative side with an eye for art and design.

Starting my career as an apprentice electrician with many twists and turns over a 25 year period I worked my way to Production shift manager for a large blue-chip company. Over this time I found the passion for Training, coaching and guiding people, there success made me want more. Around 10 years ago I was introduced to a new concept called lean, this took a while to sink in but eventually I had a light bulb moment and got it and achieved great success.

I finally left work in 2012 to open my first company whilst using a lean methodology to set the structure of the company. I used this work as my final project to become a Qualified Lean practitioner, to my surprise I also won the prestigious Tim Baily award for lean excellence for this project.

After 2 years of cutting my teeth as a successful small business owner, I felt it was time to return to my passion, with my first business growing by 15% year on year and still running. I could see small business owners struggling and investing in the wrong areas to keep the business afloat and asked the questions why don't they use lean? The answer is they do not know about it.

It was then my wife heard me say I've got a great idea; this is when we created "it's a Jungle".
