Senior Leadership Consultant and Executive Coach
“My work has supported the personal discovery and growth of more than 14,000 people across my time as a leadership behaviourist, workshop leader and coach. And it is founded in the reality of 21 years of corporate engineering and technical management. How grateful I am to have the opportunity to make as Steve Jobs so humbly suggested ‘a small ding in the world’. And there is nothing in the learning experiences I create that I haven’t applied to myself. All real change starts within.”
Project and Programme Management Consultant“My background is truly global, having built and managed successful organisations in Europe, Australasia and USA for over 30 years, across every market sector. My approach is therefore based on practical expertise that can be applied “in the real world” rather than theoretical “because it says so in the book”. I am hugely enthusiastic, extremely energetic and have an “entertaining” style – according to my delegates…..Don’t get me started on my insane love of riding my cycle in the high mountains of the world!”

Project Leadership Coach
“My passion for project management coaching and leadership stems from a powerful AHA moment I experienced when I first received coaching in 2008. Since qualifying as a coach myself, I have been dedicated to helping project managers improve their leadership skills through a combination of training, coaching and mentoring.”
“I love working with people. I am insatiably fascinated with learning how and why we do things. The more I learn, the more people inspire me with how they cope and master their challenges. As I learn, I have discovered how I can deliver even more value through facilitating and coaching personal and organisation change to a desired outcome.”
