Great presentation at the University of Hertfordshire Business School. I thought it was excellent! A very informative event.
I’ve just listened to Sigi outline his thoughts around the importance of ‘people’ [in the workplace] … His insights were inspiring, to say the least…

…My Business Advice & Interim Management
Sigi provided a very thorough and critical review of the Supply Chain capability. Focus was properly on the people and leadership issues of the team and he made clear assessments and recommendations. He put discipline into the team and processes and was very successful. Sigi’s work has been very effective and set Supply Chain on a new course…
We have had business advice from Sigi in the past, and… he is supporting us with a number of critical business initiatives – the acquisition and integration of a new business; operational performance and cost improvements; and a leadership development programme for our senior managers in the business. The quality of service we receive is unquestionable, and we find Sigi to be very professional and easy to work with – he provides fresh and insightful contribution to the development of our business and we value this greatly.
Dear Sigi, Well done to you and thank you for all you have done for us. You really have pushed a stone uphill! Please visit us when you are ever up our way. Best regards
Sigi has been leading our procurement and supply management activities through a period of significant change, following GIP’s acquisition of Gatwick from BAA. He has been instrumental in aligning our Procurement function to Gatwick’s new priorities, and instigated a number of developments to improve our supply base and procurement capability. [Sigi] …brings clarity, direction and focus to organisational development issues… He has excellent business awareness and leadership abilities, and is able to articulate ideas effectively and secure stakeholder alignment.
The results achieved during Sigi’s time here speak for themselves – Arrears down by £300K, Inventory down by £250K, OTD up by 20 percentage points, morale within the Supply Chain team at an all-time high, teamwork and appreciation of each Supply Chain manager’s department greatly improved… I am particularly indebted to the time spent in our 1-2-1 meetings which had a great focus on re-branding of my image within the business. Sigi has put in place solid building blocks for the future of the Supply Chain and subsequently the business as a whole.
I have had the pleasure of working with Sigi on improving our procurement at David Brown, and he did more than educate me – he brought out a passion that I had lost. Although he is results-driven and has very high standards, he uses his coaching leadership style to not only motivate but to ensure that one’s focus is aligned with the key goals and intents. He’s really good at what he does. He has inspired me to take my Procurement function to a different level and drive greater profitability for the company. I highly recommend Sigi.
A significant step-change in personal and business performance was delivered… Barriers have been broken down… allowing for those within the Supply Chain team to realise their potential… He has translated the strategic position of the business and its KPIs in a focused manner… Sigi has remained professional and positive every single day – in all my years in business, I have never been close to such a motivational and inspirational leader.
…Very detailed, very thorough and exceptionally well-documented… Comprehensive, tireless, patient and informative induction of new Supply Chain board director – provided a real fast-forward support… [Sigi] has delivered an exceptional piece of work which will have impacts on the company performance for years to come. The approach was systematic, clear, concise and, above all, contains the practical solution that companies need to move forward. Overall, an excellent piece of work in a very short space of time.
A very in-depth and focused review of the initial objectives, which took me on my own journey through the ‘end-to-end’ supply chain process. A very thorough analysis of data highlighted clearly where the main issues were, and clear guidance was then given on which areas of the business should be focused on to achieve results… I found Sigi’s structured approach to everything to be a major factor in helping climb the mountain… as our OTIF increased significantly and our inventory reduced.
…one of the most inspiring experiences I have had. He constantly brings his vision, his management and leadership skills to motivate people… a very systematic and thorough professional turnaround manager who follows a proven process to engage all staff… to get everyone fixing key issues and working together… I would recommend Sigi to any large or small organization that needs sustainable growth, better process discipline and improved people capability.
Sigi has made a significant difference to our business. With his drive and experience he has directed us into new ways of thinking to achieve the end goal, which is On-Time-In-Full customer satisfaction… with Sigi’s drive, self-belief and structured approach, we have found that impossible tasks are not as difficult once you drill into the core problems and rectify them. …he has re-kindled the fire and desire in me to want more from my career… Sigi is one of a kind… Thank you Sigi!
…My Coaching & Mentoring
Sigi has been a fantastic coach and mentor to me for quite a significant period, helping me advance my personal effectiveness and develop my career with great success. He has been particularly brilliant at helping me develop and sharpen up my leadership capabilities, and he has also given me specific support on a number of occasions to help me navigate tricky challenges in my personal and work life, including helping me prepare for and sail through a couple of job promotions. A truly great coach and mentor.
I did not know what to expect from my very first session with Sigi, but having him as a coach was the important push l needed to ‘think outside the box’ and erase the boundaries I thought I had. He has in no small measure challenged me to understand what my priorities are and how it affects my goals/plans. If you want to see life as a ‘half full glass’ and not ‘half empty’ no matter the circumstances, then I would gladly recommend Sigi as a coach and mentor. Thank you Sigi.
…thank you for your time and effort trying to help me to fulfil my potential. Due to your coaching and mentoring I have learned so much, especially that my destiny is in my own hands… Your sessions have given me the capabilities to alter the perception I have of myself, of the world, and the perception people have of me… I would recommend you to anyone that I feel will benefit from your sessions. Once again thank you for everything….
Sigi coached our team to improve our effectiveness and functional competence. In particular he helped me make a successful transition to my new role in the team, and to sharpen my own professional capabilities. I have continued to use some of the things I learnt from him in my own career many years later. I would be happy to recommend Sigi as a brilliant coach and mentor.
Sigi demonstrated a broad understanding of all supply chain related processes, with strong emphasis on performance measurement and devolved accountability. The coaching provided in terms of personal effectiveness was most useful and prompted changes in my attitude and approach to work, and to my relationships with my colleagues.
I met Sigi and took up a mentoring programme with him. I found the format really flexible… [Sigi has] a dynamic engaging personality with great insight and effective methods of ‘Sigi-psychology’. I took his advice, wisdom and tips to heart and got to work… Over the next few months my self-confidence increased and so did my self-belief, and it feels amazing… Sigi’s work is truly priceless!
Sigi has been instrumental in ensuring the rapid and successful enhancement of my professional skills, and in facilitating my overall development through his coaching and mentoring support. This enabled me to progress successfully from my position as a member of a team to manager of a team and beyond. Through Sigi’s encouragement to appraise many aspects of my career previously overlooked, I have continued to develop beyond the support he initially gave me, but I find it always worthwhile to catch up and see that I am still moving in the right direction.
Everyone should have a Sigi in their cupboard!
…thank you for the time you spent with me during a very difficult and challenging period… Through you I have learned… how to take responsibility and ownership for my life’s actions, with an emphasis on positively shifting my mental processes and adapting to change… has given me the ability to change the way I see life and its challenges as opportunities for growth and learning more about myself…. Once again, thank you for everything.
Hi Sigi, I would like to thank you for your help and support with my career and personal development over the last few months. You have managed to change my way of thinking which I consider life-changing. Kind Regards.
I was first introduced to Sigi six years ago whilst working as a Production Manager for a business where Sigi had been appointed as the Interim Supply Chain Director… Sigi mentored and coached me… and left with me tools, techniques and, more importantly, different ways of thinking that have stayed with me until today… I can truly recommend him as someone who can instil self-belief and through his listening skills put any business situation into context and deliver clear and concise guidance.
