Philosophy and Approach

Neil has developed ‘The Good COP’ – an approach he uses to help review, manage and develop business. He says “it’s all about having a good COP in your business – your Customer, your Operations and your People. You cannot have a high performing, high functioning or highly efficient business if these three are not working well – they all play a huge part in driving business success.” 

Through his own lived experiences, Neil further developed his passion for people, specifically their mental health and well-being, and is a qualified Mental Health First-Aider, and an Approved Provider of i-act Training (accredited by The Royal College of Psychiatrists). i-act offers a proactive and supportive approach for a positive mental health and well-being culture in the workplace, by equipping managers, employees and front-line workers with an improved understanding of, and various tools to support a positive approach. 

Neil also provides volunteer support for Samaritans and Royal Voluntary Service.
