By keeping curious, daring to travel the world (yes this is me in Argentina working and volunteering this year), I continue to discover amazing people, new ideas and, resourcefulness I wish I could bottle and share! It is my thinking that our best journeys to growth mean venturing out of our comfort zone. Being open to not knowing, working with others that do, trusting, sharing wisdom and understanding, creating our own unique and magical formula to flourish.
I sincerely believe that real value in organisations is created through people. And that positive, trusting and open relationships equal outstanding performance and results.
I will hold your hand on your journey of change.
I have over 25 years of experience and wisdom working in public and private sector organisations. Happy in relationships 1:1 or with small and medium businesses as well as large organisations with multi-partners delivery agents. I love to communicate and connect and enjoy the diversity of people and organisations.
Personally, my work has allowed me to travel and taken me to live and volunteer in places like Mongolia, last year the mysterious Tibet and Everest Base Camp and this year returning to Bolivia. I have a little Westie called Ellie who sometimes joins me at work to bring a smile to volunteers young and old within with a great educational charity where I mentor.
I am nourished by nature and the great outdoors, design, culture and finding new ways to help people young and old, live the life they love.
I am committed to giving you the support you deserve, and walk my talk with continuous personal development to show my commitment.
