I am helping to lead a Global Development Solutions practice group with experitise on Property|Places|Destinations

My track record over 20 years shows success as a strong analyst, consultant, presenter, marketer, broker of relationships, team player and project leader. I am organised, flexible, creative and energetic with an international mindset. I like to work with passion, focus and enjoyment. My "home" market is Ireland and the UK but have worked extensively around the world with local Colliers offices. These include: Hong Kong, Shanghai, Central Florida, Edinburgh, Bratislava, Belgrade, Almaty and Lima.

Through a "product development" approach of research, analysis, concept development, market positiong, place/destination brand strategy, options appraisal, development appraisal, development, delivery and investment action plans I add value by bringing together complex information to provide clear recommendations and plans to reduce risk and increase returns for our clients and Colliers.

One of the worlds biggest growth markets are cities. Colliers International is active in them, so working with colleagues in our offices I can offer addtional and complimentary  advice on your city and their strategic projects their development, management plus strategic branding & marketing.

Think of me as the "destination developer" who can help you consulting fees, downstream fees and help differentiate Colliers in your market.
