ABOUT

ME

Your people. Your actions. Your words.
I believe that we are greater than the sum of our parts. 

Challenging the status quo, removing mistrust, creating a safe environment for real problems to be tackled openly and honestly, I bring the right people together and get them talking. By enabling people to be bigger, better, stronger, and more sure versions of themselves, I help businesses to co-create strategies for change that are rooted in real-life and flexible enough for the future.

Fundraising for a new project, developing transparent approaches to leadership, employee-led engagement programmes, or strategic coaching for you or your teams, I have worked with customer-facing teams, senior management, and founding business partners to help them identify and communicate their driving purpose, over-arching values, and how this all fits together in one bigger picture. By working better together, you, your teams, and your business can move faster, more easily.
