However it was at the point when I discovered creativity for business whilst studying for an MBA that I found my passion and excitement. As I have always believed that we can all make a difference, I set out to use this new-found knowledge and skills to work through a culture change program in my organisation. This proved challenging in many ways but deeply satisfying at times and fun!
Since this time, over nearly 30 years ago, I set up my own business and worked as a trainer, educator, facilitator and a coach, developing my competence in all these domains and increasingly working with creative tools and techniques to bring results.
Some examples of programs I have initiated and worked on include:
- Jump starting a change program within a division of a major US international corporation by facilitating a creative workshop and following up with one to one coaching for all participants.
- Facilitating leadership programs with a number of international organisations using creative techniques
- Working to create harmony and vision in teams and in particular diverse teams using creative techniques.
- Facilitated many creative problem solving workshops
I have an MBA, an honours degree in Psychology, am a Member of the British Psychology Society and Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (UK based).
I am a trained coach (ICF accredited school) and have StrengthsPartnership accreditation as a STRONG Business coach.
