The musings of a Wilkinson

I’m Lee! Father of two, husband of one, full-time foodie, mental health explorer and potterer to many plants!

So this is the me. My life has been a rollercoaster that I keep wanting to ride. As I approach the ripe old age of 40, I find myself reflecting on life. I’m a Dad to Finley and Euan – my world, my life, my boys! I’m the Husband to an amazing wife Kate, a lady who gives her all to the world via the health service. We travel the world and enjoy food to an extreme level whether out or via home baking and cooking (like #currysaturday and #mexicomonday).

So I am Lee (or sometimes Wilko or even Wolverine). There are a lot of ways to describe me. I am a devoted father and like to raise the voice of the working parent – me and Kate split responsibilities. It’s a voice of challenge and understanding. I speak about mental health challenges, mainly through suffering from anxiety and depression. You may hear me talk about my life as a qualified accountant (though technically it’s a fellowship now) but more likely hear my musings and thoughts on the built environment, from the early stages through to the buildings that rise from the ground. I’m also a BIG fan of lego, food and the power of gardening.

In my professional career I have spent significant time within a Big Four Audit practice as well as shorter periods in their capital markets, transactional services and forensic teams. My area of passion is the Construction and Real Estate sector – from modern methods of construction, space-as-a-service through to wider PropTech.

My role allows me to meet and work with a wide variety of people both internally and externally. I work in a dedicated team that specialises in Construction & Real Estate – this is fairly broad and covers private clients, family-run businesses to large corporates and listed entities and funds.

In this ever changing world there is a need to remain at the forefront of developments and I spend time building that knowledge through reading and networking (as well as the occasional podcast or two!)

Meeting people and sharing experiences is the best way to connect with someone. LinkedIn provides the stepping stone but I am more than happy to meet and chat to you about anything that fits in with the above areas.
