As we work together, you will fairly quickly get to know me and how I work with clients.  You may, however, like to know a little more about me before we meet.  Here are some headlines:

I love working with people.  I am fascinated by what makes us tick and have a deep interest in how we relate to each other.

I have spent many years developing my understanding, skills and expertise to support individuals, teams and organisations through change.  


I have many years of experience of working within organisations as well as providing consultancy from the outside to support change projects.

I love working for myself and running my own business.  I have also worked at senior levels within organisations and I have been part of a family business for all of my life.  These experiences provide me with knowledge and understanding about the issues when running and/or leading a business.

I am a bit of wheeler-dealer at heart (inherited from my Dad) and I love a bargain!

I have spent many years working in the world of end of life care. I am passionate about encouraging all of us to have more open conversations about death and dying.  Once you start to do that, it is easier to live life to the full!

I am the proud owner of a husband, a teenager and 2 dogs.


Clients and colleagues who have worked with me have described me as:


  • Insightful
