Who I Am

I am your Chief Provocation Officer and a Dealer in Possibility! From my early leadership roles as a youth and student worker, through a career in senior HR and commercial roles with Tesco & Coca-Cola, to my current work with senior leaders across all sectors, my strength is in asking leaders the big questions – and then helping them answer them. I use great listening, insight, humour, sensemaking, coaching and facilitation skills to draw the best from my clients and enable them to become more effective leaders. I tell it as it is and my clients emerge feeling both supported and challenged.

I am a Fellow of the CIPD, I have an MBA with Distinction, I am a Senior Practitioner with the European Mentoring & Coaching Council and an alumnus of the Windsor Leadership Programme.

Who I Work With

I work with individuals, teams and organisations across all sectors who really want to take their performance to the next level by helping leaders to:

Articulate Their Strategic Ambition
Build High Performing Senior Teams
Change Organisation Culture
Create Inspiring Workplaces
Take Up Their Authority 


I ask the really big questions – Why does your organisation exist? What is your strategic ambition? Where do you need to be in the next 5 years? What kind of leadership will it take to get there? How well-placed are you currently to make that happen? Why is it not working as well as it should?

I only partner with clients who I connect with in terms of ambition and values. We work together because we are excited about the work and the working relationship. Connection is at the heart of all my work.
