I’m a change strategist, coach and published author specialising in adaptive change, because in a disrupted world no organisation can afford to rest on previous success.
Coaching and facilitation are the key methods and skillsets I use to engender change agility. I help clients create their own change framework blending tools, techniques and methods from: change management, project management, neo- behaviourism (how to create habits), Lean Change and Agile as well as programme management.
I’m a dedicated change professional with over 20 years’ experience. I am passionate about ‘doing change differently’ and a strong supporter of leading and ‘managing’ change using a Lean approach with a focus on co-creation and continuous feedback.
I understand the challenges of ‘managing’ change across cultures having worked on global projects in Australia, France, the UK and USA. I have led change teams on global SAP implementations as well as cultural change programmes in areas such as health and safety.
