I strongly believe that working lives can and should add meaning and purpose to our whole life, and that we all deserve to have the opportunity to be our best at work, so that we can be our best outside of work too.
The right work can bring joy and purpose, but being in the wrong job or organisation can send negative ripples into every corner of a person’s life.
For organisations, having the right people in the right roles who feel valued, informed, and included creates success and contributes to a positive, thriving culture. Not successfully engaging and recognising your people can have major impact on the bottom line, and on your customers experience.
That’s what I believe, and it’s what I’ve built a career helping people and organisations to achieve.
I help organisations be successful by overhauling, fine-tuning or re-organising their people, ensuring they have the right people in the right roles.
With a background in recruitment and HR, I can deliver everything from people strategies to leadership capability and development projects aligned to your values and business plan. Think of me as an expert you can call on to help tackle your people challenges. Whether that’s as an additional resource for your existing team, or as an independent executive coach to support key individuals in your organisation.
Over the past 20 years I’ve supported clients by:
I vividly remember the first time I offered someone a job. It launched their career into an industry that they desperately wanted to work in. They could see their career pathway opening up in front of them and felt excited, proud and understandably nervous. I felt I’d helped them achieve a significant goal in their life.
That set me on a path of being committed to helping people and organisations get their HR and talent strategies right.
I’m driven by helping people better understand themselves, focus on their goals and overcome obstacles, which in turn drive their organisation forward.
Better leadership = better employee engagement = better results.
I help organisations understand what they need to create higher performance and provide bespoke development through coaching for their top talent.
Whether I’m helping an individual feel more confident in their role or successfully make a move to a new one through coaching, or getting under the skin of a business to redesign or deliver elements of its people strategy, I’m happiest knowing that my work will make a real difference to people.
That might sound a bit cliché, but if you’ve ever been in the wrong role, or worked in an organisation that doesn’t value it’s people, you’ll know what I mean!
