Play Hard…

So many things bring me happiness but what brings me joy is having adventures (usually involving travel) with my son, going on long countryside walks with our miniature schnauzer Benjy and spending time with friends and family connecting and laughing til our bellies ache.

Work Hard…

Business can be an exercise in uncertainty. It can be hard enough to grasp what’s going on now, let alone what’s next. This unpredictable complexity can have a limiting impact on the performance of people at work.

I can help. Whether it’s just you, your team or your entire organisation, I’ll work with you to remove barriers to potential, tackle challenges with confidence, and enjoy even greater success:


Asking for help is a simple thing, but it doesn’t always feel easy at work. My constructive and compassionate approach aims to help leaders and teams to grow their awareness and expertise and in doing so enable them to achieve positive change.


Becoming a manager or leader for the first time is a pivotal moment professionally. Yet it’s often unsupported, and we’re expected to know how to do it faultlessly from a standing start. I can help furnish you with the skills and tools you need to thrive.

What to expect from me 
Support, challenge, a strategic approach, and sharp commercial focus.

My other interests

I’m a director at Corporate Punk, a specialist consultancy which helps organisations achieve sustainable change. At the heart of our approach is ensuring change is done with people rather than to them. This work is another way for me to connect to the challenges of leadership in a business context.

I am also passionate about developing younger talent. I’m proud to be an approved coach on the prestigious Marketing Academy and New Entrepreneurs Foundation programmes.
