Who are you?

Who are you?

I have been coaching and facilitating change formally since 2001. My background in leadership development, occupational psychology, executive coaching, organization development and neuroscience gives me the skills and experience to help any client in any industry to maximise their potential for performance.

I have self-funded all the qualifications I need to be able to offer a professional and reliable service. These are listed in the right-hand column.

My professional career includes 9 years as a commissioned officer in the British Army, reaching the rank of major by 30 years old and fulfilling roles as an HR Director/Company Secretary of an infantry battalion (1st Battalion The Green Howards) on operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina. I led the first-ever British Army expedition to Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia in 1995, lasting 3 months in total. I also held operations management roles in Ernst & Young, Cap Gemini and Accenture, before working for a number of boutique psychology consultancies, including the company closely involved with Team GB cycling, swimming, taekwondo and canoeing and The Chimp Paradox mind management book.

I am supervised by an EMCC and ICF-accredited supervisor. I am also a qualified Mental Health First Aider, which compliments my skills workshops on managing stress and building resilience.

For an example of a keynote I gave to a large audience, click here to watch a 16-minute TED-like talk delivered at the Risky Business Conference in September 2014.

I live in Sheffield but work across the UK and Europe, when normal travel conditions allow. I can provide all my services from my home office, using remote video conference technology. That helps me to reduce, reduce, reduce (my CO2 footprint, travel costs and time spent being neither here nor there).
