• Drew is a highly skilled and experienced Executive Leader. He has created his own bespoke models and programmes for organisational improvement, development and growth, which have been developed through his extensive research, empirical evidence he has gathered and his first-hand observations. These models are now in use across a large number of businesses and organisations across the UK.
• Drew enjoys complex work and is entrepreneurial in his approach to stretch and support leaders to become more efficient and effective in their delivery and results.
• Whatever the area or level of leadership support required, Drew can support you and better equip you to handle the most demanding of areas within your role.
