Business Development Director
Tony leads the Business Development and Marketing team within Genius Within. Tony’s remit is to expand the reach of Genius Within to new partners, commissioners and employers to create more opportunities for neurodiverse people. He has almost 20 years of experience in employability, social justice, and community development.
Tony began his career as an employment coach for long term unemployed people, a role he still describes as his favourite ever job and still provides motivation to help people achieve their potential. Tony has held senior roles across commercial and third sector organisations and is passionate about designing and delivering services that transform lives for the better.
I studied Sociology at University with a particular focus on Labour Markets and employment. I never thought it would feature in my working life! My professional training has focussed on subjects like bid writing, sales strategies, and service design. I didn’t really enjoy learning at school, but I relish it my adult life!
My inner genius is…
Always seeing the potential in situations.
