In France, one year’s Military service in the 1980’s was obligatory, this brief but intense period has fundamentally shaped Freddie’s resilient, optimistic, opportunist attitude. Being one of only two young men to earn a medal for outstanding contribution, within three months he was promoted to the rank of Corporal, within five months he was Chief Corporal, within six months he was promoted to Sergeant. He learned lessons that continue to support and drive him today in his business; he appreciates that achievement starts with attitude, that, although success needn’t be complicated, it is hard but if you overcome challenges, view them as opportunities, happiness and success will be your reward. 
Having earned several business awards for work with Lexus, Bupa, Suzuki, and Business Impact in the Community award for the Red Thread Fellowship programme, Freddie and The Red Thread Partnerhsip have proved that an attitude of positive determination is the key to success. Freddie knows that high performance is a journey, not a destination, and he guides you through routes to follow. Listening to Freddie speak, you will leave feeling your fire has been re-ignited; empowered, energised and engaged. 
Freddie can also speak on resilience, change, high performance, courage in the face of adversity, mindset, culture change, being a Frontier Leader and diversity and inclusion. 

Testimonials  Operations Director at The ONE Group LtdOperations Director at The ONE Group Ltd  Freddie is a highly engaging, credible and also very entertaining speaker. He has a warmth and natural ease about him which immediately draws the audience in. His sessions are very interactive, he takes the time to bring everyone into the discussion and it always feels highly inclusive. His content is excellent and I would highly recommend anyone to have a look at The Red Thread Partnership website for information and insight into building authentic cultures & modern leadership. I would also add that Freddie was prepared to step in at very short notice to one of our sessions, which was a life saver!   District Manager at Shell UK Oil Products Ltd  Freddie presented 52 times at our recent event. From the outset of preparation he was diligent, professional, adaptable and mindful of our internal & external culture and language. He even spent a day working at one of the retail locations to understand what the teams do on a daily basis. He adapted his presentation daily taking in to account the audience, timings, even the weather! A pleasure to work with Freddie.   Partner & Global Head of Leadership Assessment, Development & Coaching, Heidrick Consulting  We Invited Freddie to present a keynote speech at a celebration event for senior leaders in the Health Sector that had just completed our leadership development programme and were not disappointed.
