I have a wide range of commercial and organisational experience having worked in a variety of roles within both the private and public sectors. I have worked as a trainee actuary in financial services, as an internal consultant and project manager in the automotive industry and also as a management consultant in the transport, life sciences, manufacturing, utilities, retail and voluntary sectors. My experience ranges from running a programme to develop high performance teams in all the UK railway maintenance depots, to helping the CEO and board of a public sector utility company establish their key performance measures.
My most recent work has been to help a CEO & his top team shape and then lead a change programme that fundamentally altered the way they view and together run their business. Other engagements include running assessment centres, 1-1 coaching, delivering 'Productive Partnerships' training and co-running Practitioner programmes.
I bring energy, flexibility, drive and pragmatism to any situation, underpinned by a dry sense of humour and an ability to truly be with another person, whatever their issues.
Following my first degree I gained several postgraduate qualifications including NLP Practitioner, Master Practitioner & Trainer Certifications and passed Counselling Skills (Level 1). I have also studied the advanced group facilitation technique 'Deep Democracy'. Particular interests of mine are group dynamics, Transactional Analysis and how individual and organisational beliefs manifest themselves in the workplace.
Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, the performing arts and classic cars.
