PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE WITH
SAXTON BAMPFYLDE
I started life at Saxton Bampfylde as a
researcher (with a brief secondment
with our partners in Vancouver). Today
I work as a consultant, primarily in our
commercial practices working with a
range of clients.
RAINY DAY DELIGHTS
I went to stay with a friend in New York
this October– I would love an excuse
to spend another afternoon wondering
round the Met Museum of Art. Once you
get beyond the first rooms immediately
surrounding the entrance, the crowds
thin out and you can just get lost in the
exhibition rooms meandering through
Egyptian temples, Islamic art, European
and American masters and even
American basketball memorabilia. The
Roof Terrace shouldn’t be missed, even in
the rain provided you have an umbrella.
PASSIONATE ABOUT
Choral singing. Whilst at University I
was a choral scholar in my chapel choir.
I was lucky enough to do a number of
international tours and recording, and
even briefly harboured an ambition to
pursue this professionally. While my vocal
range definitely isn’t what it used to be, I
still manage to do the occasion concert
each year, and still get the same buzz.
ONE HOT TIP
The Lido Café in Brockwell Park – does
a great brunch, regardless of if you’ve
braved the unheated Lido first.
YOUR SECTOR VIEW IN JUST THREE
WORDS
Differently owned commercial
IS THE PROSPECT OF PARTNERSHIP A
KEY INGREDIENT TO PRODUCTIVITY?
IS ANYTHING ELSE REQUIRED?
Partnership and the prospect of
partnership, if harnessed in the right way
can be a key ingredient to productivity.
When employees feel a genuine sense of
accountability and responsibility for the
business’s performance, and ultimately
commercial success, this can sharpen
their individual and collective focus on
innovation, ways of working, cost and of
productivity.
