Vic Baxter

Associate Consultant

An Internationalisation Advisor specialising in the development of International Strategies through a blended approach of workshops, consultancy and workbooks. The implementation of these strategies through a wide range of tactics, contacts in region and expert associates in relevant sectors, products, services and countries. Direct personal experience in 12 countries spanning 5 continents. Originally from an Oil and Gas background but with wide ranging knowledge and experience in most other sectors. Born in Tanzania and brought up in Kenya, Vic moved to UK in 1970 and embarked on a career in Engineering at Loughborough with Hawker Siddeley Power. He moved to Vickers Oceanics in Barrow in Furness in 1976 to operate mini subs for the oil industry. A flirtation with Wharton Williams Diving led to twelve years with Shell in UK., USA., Holland, Finland and Norway. Vic’s breakthrough in understanding performance differentiators came to him after a sequence of high intensity, vast budget projects, in demanding environments, where leading edge technology alone was not enough, vis: building a $24 million subsea robot for Exxon at General Electric USA., a £96 million diving barge for Shell in Finland, a £110 million stainless steel duplex pipeline on the South East Inde field for British Gas and running a £42 million a year diving operation in the Northern North Sea for 22 Oil Majors for three years, combined with the shocks of supporting those affected by a number of fatalities, and near fatalities, during this time. It was then that his understanding of the need to have the commitment and full engagement of those around you became fully attenuated.

Since leaving Shell in 1991 Vic has consulted as a Freelance worldwide on projects ranging from employee involvement to cultural change, from counselling and coaching to consulting at national, international and multinational levels, with individuals, organisations, governments and multi governmental bodies such as the UN and The Municipal Development Partnership based in Harare. Vic is based largely in Aberdeen with both his offspring, from his late wife Linda, having married his physician. He is currently undertaking assignments in Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan with Brazil, Russia and China in his crosswires, having relinquished a project in India earlier this year.
