Ian is our Continuous Improvement Guru. He constantly reviews our guests feedback and implements improvements wherever possible.
Ian has been a property investor and coach for over 10 years. He lives with his family and 2 dogs in the beautiful Brecon Beacons in Wales.
Prior to property Ian had a successful career in corporate IT working for many of the blue chip IT companies where he gained experience in many large, complex global infrastructure projects. Through this work he acquired some key business skills in people, project and problem management that he has been able to transfer to the world of property and hospitality.
With a portfolio across the UK, Ian has gained experience of various environments and their specific needs. Over the past few years Ian has been focused on the South Wales market where he has become an expert in shared housing (HMO’s) and built a successful portfolio. More recently Ian has moved onto other strategies including Serviced Accommodation and Commercial to Residential conversions.
Ian has a particular interest in personal development and mindset and is a supporter of the theory that most people’s challenges lie with mindset rather than knowledge.
Right people in the right roles
To ensure we have the right people in the right roles we use Wealth Dynamics to profile our key members. Ian is a Mechanic. A mechanic has the ability to control and manage people
This is without necessarily having any charismatic leadership qualities. Mechanics endure and tend to rely on duplication and replication, and love to challenge the status quo.
Mechanics may get caught up in the detail
This can be at the expense of the big picture
Mechanics are great at finishing things
They are perfectionists, which is why they cannot resist finding ways to do things better.
They get hands-on with their systems and prefer to study how to improve things with their hands dirty. As a result, they have little interest in impressing with or indulging in their appearance.
Most Mechanics have companies with better systems than their competitors
However, they have not leveraged these systems with stronger products produced by others, or their business is limited by their autocratic management style and high staff turnover.
Successful mechanics remain hands-on
They continue fine-tuning their systems long after they have delegated many other areas of their business. This is where they see the greatest results, and where they gain the most satisfaction.
