I am an experienced, committed, and results driven educational professional, currently specializing in sports coaching- Sport Lecturing and Sport Facility management. I offer extensive knowledge and experience in – Lecturing, coaching, managing and mentoring teams across a range of environments.
My coaching and team management experience comes from not only my professional experience but my personal interests where I have been actively involved at coaching and managing a variety of local sports teams across both junior and senior age bands for over 25 years.
I have demonstrated my strong leadership skills both on the field of play and in a more formal environment through holding several non-coaching sports roles such as Club Chairman and Secretary. This provided the platform to demonstrate my organisational skills and relationship management in the identification of additional sponsorship streams for the respective clubs.
