work with me
I love helping people and making a difference. How can I help you?
I have over 30 years experience in operational management, executive management and running my own business. I am a qualified coach, NLP practitioner and accredited in leading psychological assessment tools, e.g. thinking styles (HBDI).
In my personal life I left school with virtually no qualifications. I worked in bars, factories and warehouses before making a living paying squash abroad. I completed my university studies in my 30’s, won a local body shaping competition in my 50s (really!) and lived with serious illness, both physical and mental. I celebrated my 60th birthday in Vietnam on a 6 month backpacking adventure in SE Asia.
You could say I’ve been around the block. I hope my experience can help you in some way.
how I can help...
see the wood for the trees
Whenever I need to make new plans, change direction or learn something new, I always talk things through with people I respect and trust. Having the support and critical ear of a valued, independent voice is so important to me. I have learnt over the years not to underestimate the power of words.

Coaching is widely recognised as one of the most effective ways of developing people; preparing them for the next stage of their career and helping them perform to their potential.
The ability to communicate a clear vision, empower and inspire action, rather that direct staff are some of the most important characteristics of an effective leader, whether a CEO or a first line manager.
Recognising the need to develop. yourself is perhaps the most important. This skill of self-awareness and part of the key leadership trait of learning agility that sets the most successful leaders apart.
