A bit about me

I have always had a focus on collaborating with people and teams in business who want to make a difference. I am restless and always keen to work with people to identify and deliver goals and projects that show practical and long-term business improvements.

I began working with Andy and the team at Go M.A.D. Thinking back in 2012. Since then I have been introduced to various other techniques and theories but it’s the Go M.A.D. methodology that has stuck with me and been at my side helping me and others since then.

I have witnessed the business environment change so much since my first job at Mansfield Brewery back in the mid 1990’s. Markets are unforgiving, and the pace of change is faster than ever as we move to a more relationship-based and collaborative way to do business. The pace of change in modern business environments requires people and teams to have the skills, tools, knowledge, and experience to thrive and keep making a difference.

I am naturally curious and love to chat, sharing stories and thoughts with people. I have a real passion for the Go M.A.D. Thinking methodology and the practical way it opens people’s natural and practical wisdom helping them to see for themselves and plan the best way forward both personally and professionally.

I have been making a difference in the pubs, brewery, and hospitality sector for over 26 years. I love to work with these teams in the sociable pub environment particularly at this time of post pandemic change in the hospitality sector. It’s a real time for change in the sector and the Go M.A.D. Thinking practical methodology is helping people think bigger, better, and bolder and thrive.

I like to collaborate with people and teams in business who are looking for help in the following:

  • Thinking bigger, better & bolder
  • Develop clear goals and plans
  • Personal and team development
  • Leadership team development
  • Creative thinking and idea generation
  • Project planning and delivery
  • Ongoing people support through 1:1 coaching

Please contact me for a quick chat about how we can make a difference together.
