My approach is to:
- Partner with my clients to deliver bespoke solutions which meet your needs and grow your capability and confidence at the same time, creating independence not dependence.
- Be practical and solution-oriented. I help you to get things done and benefit from quick wins.
- Think and work strategically and holistically to facilitate sustainable change. I do this by applying my knowledge in a range of people and organisational development areas.
I have had great feedback from my work with managers and leaders at all levels to deliver transformational change, restructures, performance improvement and leadership development programmes.

A unique blend of skills
My blend of business management, organisational development, change and programme management skills are quite unique. I have led globally dispersed business teams which has helped me to understand how businesses work and how to translate organisational development theory into practice. I focus on building productive relationships as well as the work to be delivered.
I believe in continuous professional development and have a thirst for new learning.
I am a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD), an Associate Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and I hold a Level 7 Certificate in Professional Consulting from the Institute of Consulting (IC). My MA in Strategic HRM focussed on leadership.
I have led projects and programmes in challenging contexts, engaging dispersed teams to deliver outcomes that meet the requirements of multiple stakeholders. I apply project management disciplines to my work and I am a qualified practitioner (Managing Successful Programmes and Association for Project Management Practitioner).
I have worked in people and organisational development for over 10 years and specialised in leadership for my MA. My achievements include designing leadership and technical skills models and development programmes that delivered a step change in capability. I successfully embedded HR into the business at every level in a complex global setting, introducing a true business partnering approach. My work with commercial leadership teams has demonstrated that I can provide the right people solutions at the right time. This includes leading mergers, restructures and downsizing programmes.
As a Change Manager I led organisation wide transformations of operating models, support functions and customer relationship management to make them more efficient and impactful. My strengths lie in supporting leaders to lead their teams through change and in stakeholder engagement. I have worked with leaders in SMEs and large global organisations to deliver measureable improvements.
One of the consistent themes in my career has been developing individuals and teams to do something challenging, new or in an improved way. I enjoy creating environments where people gain new insights, learn and leave feeling more equipped to deliver their goals.
