Who am I?

I’m a highly skilled professional with 35 years’ experience working for and with international businesses. I’m also a self-confessed self-help and learning addict.

I’ve run all the typical soft skills courses and “being a more effective manager” work (and participated in many more). My conclusion is quite simply that we all have amazing potential and don’t always believe in it, let alone use it consistently for our own and the greater good. That is why my main focus throughout my work is to help my clients acknowledge their strengths and work with them. This makes them more engaged and motivated resulting in happier human beings. Good for them, great for their colleagues and their companies. It makes me very happy too.

My corporate background includes management roles in training, marketing, marketing communications, corporate communications and sales. 15 years ago I took the leap from managing inside big corporates to serving them as a consultant in all things cross-cultural and leadership development. I always worked in teams of mixed nationalities, so I’m a passionate believer in the power of positive communication to build the relationships everyone needs to succeed. My strengths are in creative thinking, embracing change, gathering new input, learning and sharing. I’ve lived and worked a multi-cultural life since my late teens requiring an open, flexible outlook. I am keen to promote diversity and try hard myself to accept rather than judge and listen rather than tell.
