Professional Profile:

Accomplished and highly respected Learning & Development Consultant and Coach, specialising in individual and team growth.
Specialising for over twenty years in sales & marketing across the food & beverage, retail, automotive & financial services sectors, I’ve been applying a critical commercial & pragmatic approach to individual and team development for the last decade.
Ever embarked on an initiative that didn’t deliver the change you were hoping for? Like you, I know that to deliver sustainable change you need to get to the root cause of the issue. And, like you I also know that too many organisations waste valuable time & money just fixing the symptoms of the cause, or the wrong issue altogether, and then wonder why nothing changes. I use a bespoke and complex set of practical diagnostics to ensure we are focusing our effort on fixing the problem, to allow you to successfully deliver your goals and commitments.
I’m sure that you are also aware that another critical challenge in today’s fast-moving and competitive environment, is that no one focuses long enough to ensure that any learning implemented is successfully embedded or the change endured. My background in FMCG, coupled with a natural obsession for results, means that I have a relentless focus on the outcome. I’ll help you define the optimal outcome(s) and design & deliver programmes that will step-change performance.
If you’re not currently getting the best out of your team, I’ll be able to help. I’ve created a Transformational Teams diagnostic, framework & tool kit, that combined with my commercial experience and facilitation skills, will take your team from where it is now to genuine sustained high-performance.
I’m also an experienced, qualified and accredited business and life coach with a diverse & proven track record. If you want personal or team growth, I can help you to achieve your goals.
At Britvic, my coaching specialism area was transition coaching; partnering with leaders to help them find their feet in a new role or organisation, and effectively deliver at pace. If you’re about to start a new position, why not get in touch to see how I can help you effectively transition?
I’m an end-to-end Learning & Development professional, who’s obsessed with growth. I can help you identify, create, deliver and embed change or learning solutions in your business. All my solutions follow a blended-learning approach and meet the needs of all learning styles.
I’ve created & delivered award-winning programmes, recognised by The Training Journal and can help you do the same, engaging programmes that capture the imagination & challenge beliefs, resulting in behavioural change & improved business results.
I’m also an experienced Insights Discovery Practitioner, helping to raise self-awareness, grow relationships and use my experience to deliver practical programmes and events that can be applied in the workplace the following day.
If you think I can help you or your business in any of these key areas, why not get in touch?
