After 20 years in IT, managing staff, marriage and having three children, Sam decided to start her own business. Making a complete change she bought a Florist Shop. After 7 enjoyable and successful years she was approached to help set up a new recruitment business. Deciding to return to an office environment was not easy but her children were now all at school and her time was more her own. Whilst embarking on this project she met Paul Dodd, who introduced her to The FD Centre. In February 2013 Sam set up her own Virtual Assistant business and started working for Paul Dodd and Peter Turner as their PA, supporting them in running their regions/teams and organising events. Business grew and she took on other clients and staff. Sally Reynolds joined Sam in March 2016 and now supports Peter Turner and Karyn Pritchard at FDC. Whilst Sam continues to work with Paul she now works with David Seaton on International Leaders, an FDC sister business.
