I work collaboratively with leaders on enhancing their ability to be more resourceful and take effective action. Together we:

  • build effective leadership knowledge, skills and practice

  • develop team relationships

This leads to improved wellbeing as leaders grow in confidence and competence in their work. 

Collaboarative learning is key for leaders and teams to manage challenging issues and relationships, and create the opportunities and futures they want.

I was previously Head of School Improvement for the Department for Education, and held lead roles in national, regional and local government, schools and colleges. I designed and facilitated coaching and leadership programmes for the University of Manchester and served as a Magistrate in Greater Manchester.


A commitment to continuous learning lies at the heart of my work; we all have the potential to grow, learn and re-imagine our future!


In 2015 I co-founded Rebuilding Schools Nepal. Our aim was to raise money to develop a sustainable education programme for children living in Ramechhap, Nepal. Since then we've raised £30,000 and continue developing the education provision with the headteacher. Visit my page for more information and free teaching resources.
