I help clients on the journey from concept to insights, ideas, prototyping, test and implementation through a series of engagements which can include research, 1-1 sessions, workshops, co-creation exercises, focus groups and more.

Pam Watson Greig Melville HR
Contracts with clients are regarded as journeys where I get to travel with you to support you through the roadworks and the fast lane too! It’s not always about problem-solving - it’s also about helping you to grow your business by ensuring that you have the right people in the right place at the right time. I’ll work with you as your ‘people partner’, using my professional expertise to help you and your managers spot and address issues, ahead of time. Being commercially aware myself means that I understand the importance of ‘bottom line’, and I believe that I am an ‘enabler’ in terms of making sure that I support your business’s performance through its people to enhance and improve that performance.

Jim McDade
I believe that you, the person, are at the heart of your business. If you are feeling empowered; if you enjoy peace of mind, clarity and confidence; then your business will thrive. Similarly, if the business is running smoothly, then you will be happier and more fulfilled. Your business and personal life are bound together. That is the approach I take as a coach. I have the experience, skills and resources to help you to find certainty, purpose and direction in all areas of your life; empowering you to define and initiate your own changes.
