Creating Possibilities through Leadership

Coach - Consultant - Facilitator



To solve your leadership challenges, manage risk and take advantage of new possibilities, it's important to view the world through a different lens. I enable leaders to see through this lens, to connect with their sense of purpose, make good decisions, and to lead with courage and compassion.


I primarily work with leaders in education, but am also interested in consulting with EdTech start-ups and other leaders who work for the public good.



Building authentic relationships and leading with courage and compasssion lie at the heart of my practice. ­­ I'm skilled at facilitating teams to explore leadership dilemmas, enabling clients to more effectively manage challenging issues and create the opportunities they want.


I draw from an extensive toolkit of approaches and resources to design bespoke programmes for my clients. This is usually a combination of consultancy, coaching and facilitated workshops.


I’m an expert advisor to Zen Educate, a high-growth start-up focused on increasing the support and efficiency around supply-teaching. Their work has been featured on the BBC and in publications such as TES, FT and Schools Week.

I’ve helped them acquire new customers, better articulate their proposition to teachers, and provided mentoring to staff. I also host their regular podcast and chair webinars.


I expect overseas work to recommence in  2022. Please do get in touch in the meantime if you have a project you'd like to discuss.

I facilitate cross-cultural overseas delegations for professionals in education and children’s services. Overseas professional development helps you see the world from a different perspective, challenges assumptions and deepens the reservoir of learning. It can help improve services by exposing your team to new practices and knowledge, such as this cultural exchange with delegations from three towns in Bulgaria.


Email me at if you would like to send a delegation overseas, or if you're an international organisation and would like to organise a delegation to of from the UK.
