I am an organisational analyst, facilitator, published writer and group coach, specialising in collaborative leadership, relational dynamics and purposeful systems change.
Much of my 25+ year international career has been spent working at the vanguard of social, technological and business innovation. I have worked in information technology and systems integration; sustainable business, social and economic partnership development; action research, facilitation and process consultation. The roles have varied from strategic consulting to business development and programme delivery; from analyst to VP and board member; and with organisations ranging from social ventures, to public institutions and global multinationals.
These diverse experiences give me a perspective and insight that clients find valuable and distinctive. I combine down-to-earth pragmatism with a curiosity for the best that current research and practice has to offer. I am able to work across boundaries – whether they are functional, organisational, or cultural – to seek out and translate diverse viewpoints; and to explore questions from commercial, societal and relational dimensions.
I trained in leadership, organisational behaviour and group dynamics at the Tavistock Clinic, the Institute of Psychiatry and the Saïd Business School. I hold a certificate in Group Facilitation from ICA:UK and a certificate in Groupwork from the Gestalt Centre. I trained in Sociodrama and Action Methods with the Soziodrama Akademie in Berlin. I am also an EMCC-certified senior practitioner in Executive Coaching, accredited to use a range of psychometric instruments.
I am a Fellow of the RSA, a Principal Practitioner member of the Association for Business Psychology, a member of the UK Sociodrama and Creative Action Network, a member of the Association for Psychosocial Studies; and an Associate member of the Organisation for Promoting Understanding of Society.
