MY ROLE
Partner

I work with business leaders and HR professionals to find answers to complex and strategic issues within their businesses. I do this through delivering bespoke, pragmatic and evidence-based solutions focused on culture change, leadership development, coaching and HR strategy.

What experience and expertise do you bring to your role?

For nearly 30 years I have worked as a management consultant delivering deep, insightful, and meaningful culture change solutions.

Prior to joining NSCG, I was the co-founder and owner of Blacklight Advisory, a specialist change and human resources consultancy.

How are you helping people to achieve their full potential?

I help clients with two key challenges: supporting them to improve the performance of their teams; and/ or to identify a strategy for achieving a new desired future for their organisation. In doing so I have worked all-round the world with top organisations delivering successful initiatives to the benefit of thousands of people.

What are your thoughts on the future of your sector?

I have worked for many years in financial services; however, I have worked across many other sectors too. One thing I have consistently recognised is that there is no let-up in the pace of change – or indeed complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty. Therefore, it improbable that many aspects of today’s culture in organisations will be able to thrive in a volatile future. Instead, it will be through developing a meaningful purpose, values that resonate, leadership that inspires, and building cultures that genuinely bring people together.

How do you prefer to start your day?

A run or alternatively a bacon sandwich.

What was your first job?

Consulting for a chemical factory in the Philippines!

What’s the best advice you were ever given?

Don’t want the change more than the client!
