MY ROLE
Associate Consultant

I am an Associate Consultant within the leadership consulting team at NSCG.

What experience and expertise do you bring to your role?

With a Masters in Social and Organisational Psychology, in-house HR and Operations background and consultancy experience, I balance best practice theory with an understanding of the practicalities within a business to find the best solutions for clients based on their unique contexts.

How are you helping people to achieve their full potential?

Working mainly within the Energy & Natural Resources, Utilities and Manufacturing sectors I bring structured and insightful data into conversations to support and facilitate targeted leadership development initiatives and interventions.

What are your thoughts on the future of your sector? 

As the shift to renewables continues to gather pace, this will require large-scale transformations across technology, culture and strategy. Leaders must be set up and supported as they lead through this transition and continue to deliver quality service for their customers.

What do you enjoy outside of work? Any hobbies? 

Shuffling around the rugby pitch as the 2nd XV captain of my local rugby team, running and attempting new cocktail creations (sometimes successfully).

What’s your top three podcasts/books? 

– Lucky – Ed Jackson.
– Beyond Possible – Nims Purja
– The Good, The Bad and The Rugby podcast

Two incredible reads about perseverance, teamwork and hope and a podcast that gets me through the commute!

What’s your go-to productivity trick? 

I try to take a 10-minute walk away from a screen when I need to think through a decision or when I switch tasks. I’ve found a short break gives my brain time to evaluate options effectively without distraction and helps me context switch.

How do you prefer to start your day? 

Lots of coffee, Wordle and fresh air.

What was your first job? 

I was a tutor at Explore Learning, helping with English, Maths and Science.

What’s the best advice you were ever given? 

Everyone is human’ – when starting my career I was told this and it has stuck. Whoever you are talking to, in a business setting or otherwise, is a human being with a personal life and associated challenges, emotions and perspectives that may not be immediately obvious.
