I started work at age 14 with the local butcher, various paper rounds, helping market traders and working in a local hotel all taught me a strong work ethic and sense of personal responsibility that is with me to this day.
I loved hotel work and went on to work in various luxury Hotels in the UK culminating in my running a fine dining Restaurant in Bristol called Markwick’s. In my mid 20’s I went to work for an historic Bristol based wine merchant as a wine advisor where I worked for 5 years up until I emigrated to Australia.
Moving to regional Australia was an eye-opening experience and was possibly the single bravest thing I have yet had to do. I worked for a year as business manager for a car dealership and then worked for 5 years for a Hospitality equipment supplier where I helped the business to grow significantly.
In 2014 I opened my own speciality coffee shop and café called Jardine’s and quickly built it into a respected, profitable and popular destination for food and speciality coffee in Wagga Wagga.
I discovered GSE Business consultants during the sales process of my café after several negative experiences with business brokers. I found GSE to be helpful, realistic and tenacious in helping me to achieve a sale, it was a breath of fresh air to work with somebody who understood my business and the industry I love.
After the dust had settled following the sale of Jardine’s I decided that I wanted to help Paul with his mission to help busy café owners to achieve a sale through thorough preparation, strong exposure and good advice.
Initially based in Wagga Wagga servicing regional businesses I have since taken responsibility for our brand-new Canberra based office.
