I work with people

MY APPROACH

Businesses are not machines, and they don’t run on machine logic. Understanding and solving critical issues in businesses depends on understanding people, how they work together, and how they feel.

So I bring real, technical expertise in structural and strategic issues. Along with empathy and a deep understanding of human dynamics at work. I give you clear, concise advice that you can act on immediately.

my approach
Where my advice does have an impact on your people I help you to manage that impact professionally and compassionately.

I work with businesses whose problems I’ve met and helped to solve before, either in my own career or as an advisor.

If a different set of skills to mine are needed during an engagement I look to my associates – a small group of experts with a shared ethos.
