Our remarkable team
What do you do at Blue Apple? I’m often described as the ‘glue’ that holds everything together. No matter what the situation I am pretty unflappable. I love the challenge in bringing everything to life. As managing director that can be anything from unearthing the remarkable in every school project or keeping the team sparkling with energy and enthusiasm. I also bake a mean lasagne! Favourite bit of Blue Apple? The TEAM. Full of fun, laughter and positive energy every day. They are amazing! Favourite teacher and why? Designer, Paul Rand. He taught me conviction of your ideas.
Steve Jobs: “I asked him if he would come up with a few options.” Paul Rand: “No, I will solve your problem for you, and you will pay me. And you don’t have to use the solution — if you want options, go talk to other people. But I’ll solve your problem for you the best way I know how, and you use it or not, that’s up to you — you’re the client.”
Kevin Coleman. He taught me to always think of the next person in the process. Have I done my best so that I can hand over my project to the next person in the process and made it easy for them to do their own job?
What do you do at Blue Apple? I spend much of my time talking to and working with inspirational and remarkable school leaders, and providing them with creative solutions to help achieve their goals.
Favourite bit of Blue Apple? I have particularly enjoyed working very closely with a number of SEN schools recently. Seeing first-hand the extraordinary care and attention that goes into providing the very best learning experience for every child has been truly eye-opening. These schools have been inspirational places to spend time, and presented unique challenges to myself and the team.
Favourite teacher and why? My favourite teacher at school was Mr Clive Cooper, who demonstrated to me that I had a voice and that my opinions mattered.
School Marketing Expert
What do you do at Blue Apple?
As part of providing marketing solutions to schools, I am, first and foremost, a storyteller. Schools all have their own distinct story to tell that will reach the hearts and minds of their audiences. My job is to work closely with schools to tease this out and to unearth why anybody would want to attend or work at that school as opposed to anywhere else.
Favourite bit of Blue Apple?
When the designers bring a school’s story to life.
Favourite teacher and why?
My mum, for teaching me never to give up.
