While being one of the most humble, and grounded people you could meet in a senior management position, Paul is also someone who is truly inspiring.
He started working in the care industry at 16 years old working in a care home for older people and people with dementia going onto become a senior director and member of the leadership team at the largest independent care home provider in the UK.
He has an amazing capacity to connect with the workforce. In the care homes he has an instant rapport with residents and relatives and hasn’t lost his insight or understanding of day to day life in a care home and how that impacts on staff, families and residents.
He is someone you look at and think “I can do it” and having someone like him leading an organisation and being involved in the future of social care in this country, at such a challenging time for the sector is assuring, comforting and inspiring.
Paul is someone you believe in and someone who whether they know it or not is a genuinely kind and compassionate person who is able to connect on a human level with people. With so much negativity about health and social care in the media with young leaders like Paul that can change. If more people could hear about his story and think, he did it, so can I, then that can only be a positive change for social care.
