“Coming from the construction industry, the business development approach at Appleton Greene appealed to me, because I was used to the practice of taking deposits prior to and during the development process. There is always a significant investment required within the construction industry and while the return on investment is always rewarding, the level of risk is extremely high and most construction companies are highly geared as a result. By contrast, my consulting career at Appleton Greene has been entirely self-financing, which means that the risk is much lower, but the return on investment has still been considerable by comparison. What you invest most of all with CLP is your time, but you need to do that with any business venture. I still own a company within the construction industry, but my sons pretty much run it now and having a separate corporate training company provides me with a good financial and work-life balance. I see myself evolving into a professional trainer and mentor in the future and it feels good to be able to give something back to an industry where I have prospered.”
