I am a facilitator, consultant and coach for TDP.  During my time with the company, I have been heavily involved in several large culture transformation programmes - one with a national logistics company and another with a government organisation outside of the UK.  I have also held dual roles as coach and facilitator on several key transformational leadership programmes, such as a leading Local Authority in Central London and HM Prison Service. 

I have been in the ‘people development’ arena for 25 years, starting in Human Resources for a large automotive company before taking several HR and Learning & Development International Business Partner roles in global financial services. Moving into Learning & Development, I specialised in the areas of employee engagement, leadership, and team effectiveness. Since 2004 I have been fortunate to work with many dynamic private sector organisations in telecoms, shipping, IT, financial services, plus public sectors bodies in Europe and the UK.  My roles have encompassed coaching, consulting and facilitating transformational programmes. 

I am qualified in level A & B psychometric testing and work with clients to help build self-awareness and targeted development plans. I am qualified in MBTI, WAVE, FIRO-B, Emotional Intelligence and PRISM, a neuroscience-based tool, which helps build client awareness.  I also recently qualified in Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational achievement.  Additionally, I have a Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing (GYM) and a Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training. 

I am passionate about helping leaders and key contributors to understand the impact and influence they have on other colleagues and organisational success. I work in partnership with them to leverage their strengths, build accountability and action to drive positive outcomes. 

I live in Beverley, East Yorkshire, with my husband and two daughters. I love fitness and helping people achieve their life goals, entertaining and socialising, writing for work and pleasure, travel and adventure and comedy. I recently adopted an elderly black cat called “Ollie” who has settled in quite nicely.
