What is your role?
To educate others and inspire people to action.
What made you want to start a company like JH Flemmings?
A desire to better the services and proposition available to those that have great ideas and wonderful stories but lack the foundation, the expertise or the network to turn that great idea into a reality or complete their story.
What makes JH Flemmings special?
The people, their commitment to personal excellence, loyalty, trust and naivety... which at face value has negative connotations but the naivety of our people is what ensures that a problem becomes an opportunity to analyse, make improvements and progress.
What has influenced you most in your career?
The failures. We don’t learn how to reach our full potential through the successes we have, we surpass expectations and achieve by learning from our past (and future) failures. These perceived negative experiences represent opportunities to improve. Fail quick... learn fast... make improvements... continue on the journey.
Who would you change places with for a day?
My business partner. I do not have children whilst my business partner has a beautiful daughter and son. For a day... I would want to understand first-hand how he, along with his amazing wife, maintain their perspective on life with only 2 hours of rest.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Awareness of my responsibilities. I am part of something which is bigger than any one person or any one function, where the allocation of our time is one of the most valuable investments we make into our community. This is fundamental in ensuring added value to our members... and I cannot add value whilst asleep (unfortunately).
