I help companies become resilient, agile and fit for the future.

I help create a working culture that can thrive and flex in a world where change is constant and old ways no longer work.

I apply behavioural science principles to foster courageous leadership and skilled management.

I find ways to harness an organisation’s innate collective intelligence on how to work more effectively.


Leveraging collective intelligence and effort


Appreciating what works; fixing what doesn’t


Enabling leaders, managers and teams to deliver their best


Boosting wellbeing

What I do

I work with clients to build organisational resilience so that, without me, they can cope with change and adapt effectively.

Organisation Development

Organisational development is about building and maintaining the health of an organisation as a total system through a carefully planned set of activities.

  • Getting under the skin of knotty organisational problems
  • Building common purpose, engaging hearts and minds and orchestrating solutions
  • Building organisations that can adapt without needing constant restructuring

Leadership Development

Creating a flexible, agile organisational culture is as important for leaders as building new business, enhancing brands and attracting the best talent.

  • Developing the practical skills to lead, evolve and adapt organisations
  • Transforming the way organisations operate to embrace challenge and opportunity
  • Leveraging collective effort to tackle complex and seemingly intractable problems

Resilience Building

The ability to deal with ambiguity and thrive in challenging circumstances is at the heart of healthy and productive organisations.

  • Developing practical skills to build resilience
  • Boosting the health and wellbeing of employees and improving ways of working
  • Delivering people safely through change, whatever their destination

My Approach


Connect voices of people and partners. Build common purpose and engage hearts and minds. Inspire action.


Explore knotty challenges and find solutions. Pilot new ways of working and behaving. Capture good practice.


Codify what works. Adapt to suit local needs. Accelerate change through active dissemination.
