An independent organisational consultant working with purpose oriented businesses for more than 25 years.

As well as coaching and facilitating, I have had a lot of 'hands-on' business experience – in several launch teams, as an SME Director and Chair, and as a startup MD.

I also have specific knowledge of agile working, communication, distributed leadership, and circle-based governance (e.g. Sociocracy).

I am happy to talk if you have a knotty business problem which is, at root, about people and their relationships:

My approach is based on taking group (or system) process seriously. I help clients lead more effectively by noticing group (and system) dynamics and learning to communicate better. Together we build teams that are creative, resilient and fun to be in, and that produce great results.

I have worked with all kinds of businesses including co-ops, employee-owned businesses, social enterprises, and in the public sector/education. I work independently and in partnership with Then Somehow and Practical Governance.
