Alastair Carnegie - Managing Director
Total Energy Solutions Ltd
My role as MD is managing client relationships, new business and marketing along with my wife who is Financial Director an essential part of our team. I have also set up Mentor+ a 9 week course (2 hours per week) to mentor Students in employability skills. The difference being we use mentors from the local church and business community bringing them into the college and basically transform the lives of many students.
This is my real passion and the reason I want to be an EA.
Angus Fosten - Joint Managing Director
In 2000 I was part of a management buyout team and have been an owner/manager since then. The company is growing and I am using my commercial skills to help manage all aspects of the business. The engineer in me still can’t resist getting involved in product design and providing solutions for our customers.
Daryn Dodge - Business Coach
DMD Management Services Ltd
I originally started from very humble beginnings in a working class part of Essex. As a teenager, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do and consequently when I left school I took my father’s advice and completed an apprenticeship as an Electronics Engineer. However, by the time I was fully qualified I had realised that my interests were elsewhere and I left to pursue a career in IT, starting as a Computer Programmer.
Dr Kat Hickey - Business Development & Training Manager
Goonhilly Earth Station Ltd
I organise education & outreach activities at Goonhilly Earth Station, and help the directors to make our business as efficient as possible. I want to work with schools to show what amazing career opportunities we have right here in Cornwall.
Jo Tomlinson - Head of HR
Samworth Brothers – Kensey Foods
I grew up in Saltash and between 1985 and 1990 I attended what was then Saltash Comprehensive. My school years weren’t my best, I didn’t feel inspired and I had no patience for the subjects I didn’t enjoy. Thankfully I was good at a handful of subjects and I left after year 11 with some GCSEs and a keen desire to get out into the world of work, earn money and be independent.
Marian Shannon - HR Professional
Following a move to Cornwall, I am excited to be volunteering as an Enterprise Advisor for DoubleTrees school in St Austell and looking forward to helping them to develop their student enterprise and employer activities.
Martin Hinchliffe - Managing Director
Hinchliffe Business & People Solutions Ltd
My Careers advisor thought I should be a salesman! I wanted to be a cattle auctioneer and professional cricketer, but ended up in Catering, retail and hospitality and loved it. It was the people and teams that I worked with that made it.
Nicky Luke - Recruitment & Talent Manager
I help businesses to recruit talented people, help people develop their confidence in their skills and understand how to sell themselves to employers. I thought I would end up as a teacher. Truth is, I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up!
Peter George - CITB Adviser
Construction Industry Training Board
I am from just outside Manchester and attended a comprehensive school where I could have done better but had no idea what I wanted to do until I got a summer job working on a building site as a labourer.
I was offered an apprenticeship but decided to go back to college and started a BTEC in Construction and the Built Environment and realised I had a job for life and an opportunity to do as well as I as could.
Stuart Moore - Head of Spacecraft Operations
I enjoyed a 15 year career in the RAF, experiencing many different cultures and countries while developing skills on a multitude of electronic communications equipment, providing a solid foundation in electronics, data communication networks, digital / RF systems and techniques. I finished my Air Force career as a Technical Trainer and Mentor; preparing new recruits for their future careers as an RAF technician.
Upon leaving the RAF, I then spent over 10 years working various roles within the Spacecraft Operations Department as part of the Skynet military satellite program.
Susan Walton - HR Professional
I help organisations to get the best out of their people by looking long term at how they can engage, motivate and develop employees. I make sure they have the right structures, comply with employment law and get the right resource for their organisations. I have just set up my own company and have started to get freelance work to support organisations who are transforming their services to new digital platform.
