Professional Profile:

Passionate about finding new opportunities in learning, embracing new technology and innovative approaches to development.

I decided after 16 years working in various senior L&D roles for a number of fantastic companies, to set up my own business. I now help in-house L&D teams to develop their capability, identify and promote their brand and strategy and help them align more closely to the needs of the business.

I also work with Line Managers and leaders to help them develop and coach their teams to better embed learning into the work flow.


I believe in developing people through multiple touch points to create connected learning journeys and to ensure learning has a better chance of embedding.


I focus mostly on up-skilling Training Teams and Line Managers to equip them to better develop people within the organisation.

These are some of the typical areas in which I can help:


Developing Training Teams

Developing your L&D Brand experience

Building your Learning & Development capability


Developing Line Managers

Developing and Coaching your team

Creating a High Performing Team

Leading with your values


Developing employees

Delivering a great Customer Experience

Selling through service

Owning your own development
