Various Catering and Food Hygiene Qualifications
Following his service with the South African Police Force, Greg pursued a career in Catering and Hospitality. This developed his customer focus and appreciation of the importance of customer satisfaction and the need to deliver consistent and continuous service.
Following work in prestigious Hotel facilities in both South Africa and the UK, Greg secured positions with corporate caterers in Banking; the BBC & Shepperton Studios.
His final General Catering Management role –with an international high-profile consulting organisation –demanded a full re-fit of their kitchen; catering & dining facilities. During this exercise, Greg assumed the lead role in the project delivery – from defining the brief for the client; specifying the finishes & equipment to tendering & awarding the contractors. In order to retain business continuity, he then assumed the decommissioning of the existing facility; created an interim kitchen and project managed the scheme –without any disruption to the business.
Greg took the opportunity to change career direction and has since delivered many and varied projects across retail; commercial; industrial and public business sectors –always with a keen interest in maintaining strong client & customer communications and minimising the inevitable impact of any project or change activity on the business.
The PRINCE2 principles have been adopted and embedded into the BPM project process and Greg is fully conversant with MS Project and the delivery of reports for internal steering groups and Board presentations alike.
Recent notable achievements include the project management and mobilisation of an internal London City investment bank to new headquarters with a new FM provider; the award of an engineering contract to the energy industry and full operational mobilisation of a private healthcare facility to the north of London.
