In 2010 Paul started Lightbulb, a training and consultancy business with the mission to reduce the painful bits we often have to live with when working for organisations and with other people!
From sorting the people management bits easily and quickly to getting other work-stuff done in new, better ways and in half the time. It’s about talking in plain-English, cutting out the annoying corporate buzzwords and office-speak to ultimately make things simpler. Lightbulb is all about approaching things in a non-textbook, practical, step-by-step way so that people can get going with a new tool or technique at 9am the next day.
Paul’s experience spans several blue-chip Companies in operational, HR and board-level roles and he is also the author of ‘HR & Other Swear Words: Practical & Credible HR for Beginners’. As a speaker the feedback sheets often comment on him being ‘engaging’, ‘memorable’, ‘non-fluffy’, ‘energetic’ and ‘down to earth’.
He has trained, coached and worked with hundreds of people across sectors and from SMEs to more well-known brands such as Mulberry, Rank Entertainment, Saatchi, BMW, Eurostar, Conde Nast, ITV, Pizza Express, Primark, Citigroup and London School of Economics.
