Terry was Country MD for the Consumer Adhesive Business at Henkel in Russia when we discussed options for strengthening the business for Decoration Adhesives in this region. I found Terry an open, honest and reliable business partner who very well put the opportunities of this product group in line with the resources of his team and the specifics of this highly diverse and complex national market. Thanks to his strategic skills and his profound business and management knowledge and experience, he laid the groundwork for the still ongoing success story of this product category in Russia.
Terry is an internationally experienced businessman who has helped a large cross section of both large and small clients make step changes to their business and achieve sustainable, profitable growth. With smaller businesses where he is dealing with owner/managers, he has proved to be a valuable mentor, and with larger businesses … he has achieved very impressive results. I have no hesitation in recommending Terry.
Terry mentored me in my transition from corporate leadership into an independent portfolio career. He generously shared his own experiences with me, knew the likely "bears on the road" and held me as I made the necessary early decisions. He taught me to find my balance and helped me trust my instincts as I started pedalling on my own. His support was invaluable and I am forever grateful. Thanks Terry!
Terry helped, coached and supported me through a recent role transition, and always had great answers and suggestions for me to take away and think about from our conversations together. I am extremely thankful for his guidance and feel I have greatly benefited from his advice and knowledge.
Terry’s international background and his broad experience as a senior executive operating at board level have helped me reflect on my strengths and shape a successful strategy for my next career move …. Terry has great coaching skills and I have really valued his structured and supportive approach.
He listened, shared his very broad experience and gave positive, specific advice – not just what to do, but how to do it and why. This was invaluable in helping me to determine my next best steps and obtain a new, exciting permanent role.
Though we have very different backgrounds, I found Terry's broad business experience and international perspective to be particularly helpful in my search for a new position after having moved from overseas. He quickly identified my strengths and areas in need of improvement as a job seeker, and provided valuable assistance in CV improvement, job searching, interview preparation, and tailoring a networking strategy that I expect will be of long-term value to my career.
Terry provided valuable insight and a pragmatic approach to help achieve my next career move. His business experience complements his mentoring skills as someone who has been there and done it.
Terry kept my energy levels high throughout a transitional period in my life. His ability to offer clarity of perspective and direction though the use of a simple "toolkit" went way beyond my expectation of what mentoring could do for me. He really helped me focus on priorities. He’s also extremely conscientious and professional and, just as importantly, is enjoyable to work with.
Terry encouraged us to rethink our whole client proposition, knowing the challenges that lie ahead. Through Terry's efforts, we've improved the clarity of our business objectives, and we continue to greatly value his advice, vision and attention to detail.
