If you are looking for a new capacity for performance for yourself as a leader, and for your teams, then I could be looking for you… You could join the exceptional collection of senior leaders with substantial accountabilities with whom I have the privilege to partner. I work with leaders engaged in a wide range of industries and fields such as Energy, FMCG, Aviation, Law, Transport, Retail & Manufacturing, Education and Regulation.
Together we inquire into the nature of leadership in a unique and intriguing, yet highly practical and operational manner that immediately impacts actions and leads to unprecedented results.
Having been ardent and full of youthful ideology, I started my career in business in an unconventional manner. During my twenties, I was a founder member of a number of worker owned enterprises. Discovering that the business structure alone would not bring about industrial democracy and an empowered workforce full of self generated action, I became thoughtful about – “what does?” Having then gained an LLB from Southampton University, I taught Law for nearly a decade. During that time as a teacher, I explored “what makes people both open and willing to learn, and what has us take action or not take action?”
I began to discover, through study and practical application, a range of diverse frameworks and perspectives that I could use to dramatically enhance my performance and results. I turned my thinking from teaching to coaching. I discovered that my skills could be applied in a wider professional and commercial sphere. Initially I ran a successful coaching practice before being hired by JMW Worldwide (an international corporate consultancy firm) to join their “ Leadership Development Faculty”. Over 14 years I gained substantial experience in large corporate environments by leading many Leadership Development programmes ,working with clients on site on their breakthrough projects and being a Senior Executive Coach.
I joined SLP Global to expand my scope and take part in a fellowship of like-minded and deeply thoughtful consultants with a commitment to supporting leaders and teams who are up to something and out to produce outstanding performance.
I am a qualified SLP Master Coach.
