Helping you make things better

All change!  Whether you call it change leadership, change management or quality improvement, and whether you’re a team leader, senior director or systems leader – change is now part of everyday work. Yet making change happen isn’t easy, and success is far from guaranteed. The evidence shows again and again that just having good ideas for what should happen isn’t enough. How change is led is crucial. 

Don’t despair – there are ways you can lead change with more success and less stress. I’ve spent the past 20 years leading change and helping others increase their own effectiveness. Working at local, national and international level, I’ve seen the benefits of a wide range of approaches, tools and techniques, and now I’ll be delighted to introduce them to you and your team.

Support for yourself, your team and your system

I’m not interested in telling you what to do. But through training, coaching and consultancy, I will help you develop your own effectiveness and resilience. I work with teams and leaders in healthcare, the legal profession, charity sector and churches. There are lots of tried-and-trusted solutions I draw on, but I’ll enjoy working with you to provide a bespoke package of support.
