His formative years were spent as an Officer in the British Army. During his ten year military career, Jeremy served in Northern Ireland, Hong Kong, Brunei, Berlin, Cyprus, Norway, Turkey, Denmark and Italy. His military career was split between leadership of 180 soldiers in an infantry company group, and the leadership of small but strategically influential teams of specialists. During this time Jeremy was responsible for briefing Cabinet Ministers and 4 star Officers.
Jeremy’s best selling book, ‘Leading Initiatives: Leadership, Teamwork & The Bottom Line’ was the precursor to his leadership consulting career. Jeremy regularly contributes to journals and he has had two papers published by Monash University. His most recent book ‘Leading Through Leaders: Driving Strategy, Execution and Change’ (2012) contains the ‘core content’ which is now the foundation of an MSc in Leadership and Organization that he designed for the University of Plymouth. The book is informed by 18 years real-world leadership and consulting experience in building scalable and sustainable leadership and strategy execution capability.
