Paul’s passion and lifetime interest is history and in particular military history and the Normandy Invasion. Not only has he the ability to recite facts and figures he also analyses the effect that major events have had on people’s lives both today, tomorrow and in the past. He is a great believer that if you want some indication of the future, then look to the past. He carries his historical interest into practical terms and has been successfully taking people on “Battlefield” Tours of Northern Europe for over ten years.
Paul is an expert on the new world of work and presents TomorrowToday’s award-winning “Mind the Gap”, repeatedly requested by CEOs and event planners around the world, it is a multi-media, humour-filled exploration of the different generations. Paul will explain how value systems are developed and how these influence attitudes and behaviours. By understanding the impact of different generations, inside and outside your organisation, you can improve customer relationships, and the productivity and interactions of your teams. Understand what shaped and formed Boomers, Gen Xers and Gen Y, and why younger and older people – staff, customers, family and friends – have such different expectations and approaches to life, leadership, work and relationships. Apply the insights immediately and change your company forever.
Paul has over 20 years experience as the owner and MD of one of the most respected businesses in his field and has been voted in the past to be the youngest ever President of his industry Association. He is a “cusper” – with the entrepreneurial skills of a Baby Boomer and the acceptance of change typical of a Generation Xer. He has particular interest in the amount of information that people are bombarded with in today’s world and has headed up an industry body as Chairman of an “Information Overload” campaign to try and make people more conscientious of how they do business.
Paul’s other passion is sport and at weekends you will find him on the rugby field or tennis court; either coaching, refereeing or playing.
