By keeping curious, daring to travel the world, 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 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 on a one to one or with small and medium businesses as well as large organisations with multi-partners delivery agents. I guess I love to communicate and connect and enjoy the diversity of people and organisations.
Personally, my for travel has taken me to live and volunteer in places like Mongolia, Bolivia and more recently Tibet and Everest Base Camp. 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 believe in continuous client service improvement. I have collected some qualifications on my own journey to demonstrate this commitment.
