Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

I have specialised in employment law for 30 years and loved every minute of it.   It takes me to the heart of a business.   I get to understand your culture and your values as well as your systems and processes.  Experience has taught me that listening and influencing skills are essential to deliver solutions that take the organisation forward, and that straight talking is also often necessary to deal with the issue at hand.

I have acted as the Location Head for the London Office for 7 years and imbedded agile working into the heart of the culture in the years leading up to the Covid pandemic.   Invaluable insights and people skills were learnt and shared.
