Although my approach is usually pretty light-hearted and informal, I take people’s development very seriously. I’m into the practical application of learning and understanding. I like helping people to make their leadership and team roles as effective as possible, and to enjoy themselves at work.
I have hard-skills business qualifications: Chartered Accountancy (FCCA) and MBA; as well as soft-skills qualifications: Certified Professional Coach, NLP Masters and Newfield Mastery in Coaching.
Previously I worked in senior Finance, Corporate Strategy and Project Director jobs in one of the UK’s largest organisations and also set-up, grew and eventually sold a small international consultancy business. I’ve served on the Institute of Director’s regional board and two terms on their national governing Council. I’ve also been a Non Executive Director and chair of audit at my local hospital trust.
In my spare time I run the silver-level expeditions at our local Duke of Edinburgh centre.
