Areas of Expertise

Professional profile

I am passionate about empowering people, leaders and teams - transforming businesses and changing people’s lives. I do this through helping people understand others, and raising awareness of how behaviour and culture affects relationships.

I am an experienced facilitator, helping people and groups learn more about themselves and others, how and why people operate the way they do, what makes teams cohesive, building trust, reducing conflict, improving communication, and empowering managers and leaders to lead their people more effectively. I love seeing the differences this understanding makes in teams and individuals. People working well together makes life and business better!

I have around 30 years experience in education, training and development, with people from a wide range of ages and backgrounds. I have lived and worked in both Japan and New Zealand. Since 2017, I have also been working in Bangladesh and Nepal, developing senior executives, teachers, university students, training in emotional intelligence, and empowering youth.

Qualifications

B.Ed.

Professional profile

I am a family person who values Kindness, Compassion and Empathy. I feel very privileged to have a great supportive partner and three healthy and happy children.

I have over 17 years’ experience in education both here and in the UK. During this time, I have worked with families, teaching teams and a number of outside/government agencies to ensure we are providing the best care, support and education for the children and the people around them.

In both my personal and professional life, I realise that everyone has the ability for greatness as long as they are empowered and supported by the people around them. My biggest joy is seeing growth and development in the people I work with.

I am looking forward to using the skills and experience I have gained around relationship building and conflict resolution, to help your teams and businesses grow and reach their true potential.
