CONSULTANT, COACH AND FACILITATOR

I find great joy in helping people to connect with their sense of purpose and ultimately to reach their full potential. I consider it a privilege to have helped leaders in the UK and abroad to more effectively manage challenging issues and create the opportunities they want.

 

Building authentic relationships and leading with courage and compassion are at the heart of my practice. I draw on theoretical approaches such as Egan’s Skilled Helper Model and Sieler’s Ontological Coaching, a transformational approach to enhancing the client’s ability to be more resourceful and take effective action.

BACKGROUND

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.

 

Education is at the heart of my career, but the problems I help solve can be applied to any business working for the public good. These include building leadership capacity to support growth and development, chairing project boards facilitating leadership and governance, CEO appraisals for Multi-Academy Trusts, and articulating a compelling EdTech proposition for schools.

RE-BUILDING SCHOOLS NEPAL

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.
