I am a Non-Exec Director, Consultant and Leadership Coach, specialising in creating an organisations’ WHY or Vision, Culture & Behavioural Change, Leadership or Team Resilience, Income Generation Strategies, Sustainability and Bid Writing.
As a former CEO, my role was to lead the charity; create the strategy for income generation, enterprise and sustainability; lead and inspire the team; create a culture of passion, creativity, energy and productivity; develop strategic partnerships and new project development.
I am an experienced leader in third sector organisations, social enterprises and SME’s specialising in building new Boards or creating stronger, more effective Boards including challenging and improving team behaviours, leadership styles and team/board dynamics.
As a Certified Leadership Coach and Mentor, I work across all sectors including Leaders, Executives, Boards and Organisations of FTSE 100, Third Sector and SME’s.
I specialise in working with people or organisations to create a new path, to go the distance and to face the future with a resilient mindset. I identify behaviours or styles of leadership which may be holding organisations or business back or changing patterns to create growth and unlocking problems through thinking differently and identifying and trying new options.

I live in Edinburgh with my partner – a long way from my hometown of Liverpool, but fate brought me to Scotland and that’s where I’ve stayed for the last 25+ years. In my spare time, I enjoy running, cycling, walking and exploring Scotland’s natural treasures. I adore the world’s creatures but, if pushed, I’d have to say cats hold a special place in my heart. I also love to cook and am at my happiest in the kitchen creating yummy vegetarian dishes – ideally with a glass of bubbles in my hand!
