The trainer is a Director of a consultancy company specialising in taxation, share scheme advice, reward and lecturing. He has developed a specialised share scheme service for small companies and advises FTSE companies on communication. The lecturing covers most aspects of Direct Taxation but his particular interests include employment taxation and transfer pricing, which poses unusual conceptual challenges.
Previous to this, he worked for Henderson for nearly 9 years, leading the Share Schemes team for part of this time.
He took the level 7 CIPD Masters qualification whilst at Henderson. Before Henderson, he was with Australia Mutual Provident (AMP) and helped set up one of the first Share Incentive Plans (SIP) for large companies in 2001. It was so unusual at the time that the Revenue phoned him up to find out how they could encourage more large companies to adopt SIP.
He started his career in taxation and for the following 16 years worked in three of the “Big Four” accountancy firms. He ended up as a Senior Manager with Deloitte & Touche, having worked on issues such as profit-related pay, share schemes, expatriate tax, tax investigations, reward management, US taxation, transfer pricing and corporate tax.
