Consultancy and Professional Advice
I often work with organisations as a consultant and advisor. My role in the relationship is to make you and your team successful and to develop your capability for the future.
I have a broad experience of knowledge management tools and techniques, including KM strategy, communities of practice, organsational (social) network analysis, lessons learned, good practice transfer and knowledge capture. As a learning and development professional, I also frequently work in the areas of culture, behaviours, leadership and change management.
Training and Development
I provide a number of training and development offerings - including:
In-company Conferences and Enagement Events
- high-level introductory events,
- leadership and executive development,
- specific masterclasses,
- tailored toolkits and facilitation guides,
- in-depth, experiential workshops in which people use the "tools of the trade" themselves.
Through presentation, business storytelling and high-value examples, I can engage staff at all levels. This has included the boards of major corporations, practitioners, senior civil servants, subject experts and newly inducted graduates.

I act as a coach or mentor to individuals and teams, bringing the support, objective challenge and experience that will raise their performance.
Coaching support can be delivered through any combination of face-to-face, video conferencing, telephone or e-mail discussion.
