Business Skills Trainer
I have over thirty years’ experience as a diversity and communication practitioner and am passionate about equality and social justice which I use as a driver for all my work. I am comfortable offering individual or small group coaching, delivering training and facilitation services or as a public speaker.
In recognising that effective and positive communication is an essential aspect of organisational development and change, a key feature of successful management and learning development, I have produced a range of services to help organisations and individuals fulfil their potential by adopting best working practice.
I enable clients to develop personal and organisational communication skills, resulting in improved managerial and colleague relationships, with increased efficiency, effectiveness and productivity. I have provided services to clients of all sized from SMEs to large multi-national companies and have worked in public, private and voluntary sector organisations.
During the past five years, I have become very active in social media and recognise the importance of respectful and valuing communication in the digital (as well as the real) world. As a result, I now also offer organisations a coaching package on maximising returns from time spent on digital communication.
I have a Diploma in Organisational Gestalt, which has helped me develop a creative, inclusive and dynamic delivery style, whilst avoiding the use of PowerPoints whenever possible and maximising storytelling as a primary learning development tool.
