Knowing how modern manufacturing methods are used to make products is extremely valuable to teams from the earliest point of their project. Design For Manufacturing is a key component of success and Cradle to Grave considerations early on help define a successful marketing strategy.

My extensive experience in automotive, chemical, printing, digital printing and 3D printing industries can help start-ups have an edge over others.

Why Am I Qualified To Do This Work?

I am

  • a business consultant specialized in marketing, with special reference to brand strategy and sales strategy.
  • an experienced manager, having served in management roles in the military, non-profit organizations, Fortune 500 companies, startups and SME’s.
  • a trained educator and mentor with a wealth of experience.

And I have over 40 years of experience in specialty chemicals, integration of consumables and optimisation of equipment in industrial applications.

My experience spans the entire gamut of business from startup through to corporate. Now my responsibility is to share my knowledge.


Massive boost

1998 - 2001

I have designed and implemented entire factory workflows using the theory of constraints. After training the staff, this system reduced manufacturing waste to below 10% and increased on-time deliveries to over 90% within 3 months' time. The result was a massive boost in profit and customer satisfaction.

Brand development

2001 - 2008

I developed the TechINK brand which was later acquired by HP.


Doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success – “you only fail when you give up trying, never give up and never fail!”


Being very careful and paying great attention to every detail – “if a job is worth doing it’s worth doing it properly.”


Starting a new adventure is difficult not just physically but emotionally, the ability to understand and share the feelings of another because I have been there.
