| you / a colleague as an individual |
I work with individuals, teams and organisations of all shapes and sizes and at different stages in their careers and organisation lifecycles, offering development & learning and mentoring & support though different periods of challenge and change. I love to work with those who seek to right injustices, who want to campaign for better, who want to alleviate pain and suffering, who want to change the world
I help these awesome beings to "do their thing" better and to do it "well"
Whatever the cause of your frenzy or your fog, I'm here to help. I've been there. In many cases, I've got the t-shirt (this is the charity sector - we like a good t-shirt!)
My mission is to help those working in the charity sector to scale the challenges thrown their way with clarity, confidence, balance and success. Challenge is not a new concept to me - I'm a past master (and past disaster!)
I've lived through dealing with and emerging stronger from: Administrators at the Board Table; the enforced exist of two CEOs; two recessions; restructures; charity closure; protracted gross misconduct cases (not mine!); and multiple other managerial and leadership challenges (and some fairly significant health and personal life schizzle)
AND I've also experienced dealing with, and emerging stronger from: Openings; New Beginnings; Amazing campaigns and appeals; Surprise significant gifts; Developing Incredible talent; Loyalty, Passion, and Devotion
I've been where you are
AND, over the last 10 years, I've supported, nurtured and mentored nearly a hundred driven, savvy, committed (and sometimes, a little bit bonkers) charity professionals, helping them work through and improve their:
• focus and productivity;
• structures, development and succession planning;
• performance and goal-setting;
• mindset, motivation and motivating; • skills and confidence;
• organisational, team and fundraising culture; and
• individual and workplace wellbeing
I mentor individuals wanting to develop and grow their individual expertise and roles and offer consultancy services for organisations, brands & charities wanting to skill and empower their colleagues and teams to grow, develop and shine

What is the challenge you want to slay?
The change you want to see and be?
Management has been identified as THE number one factor determining organisational success and wellbeing
And yet, our research shows 70% of managers in the third sector have never had access to formal management training
The risk not providing management training for individuals when they take their first steps in management is that untrained managers become untrained leaders.
The Thrive Academy
is a 6-month
Management Mastermind programme, designed specifically with the needs and demands of a manager in the charity sector in mind
Our next cohort starts

with me is like having a management mentor,
a people strategist,

an accountability buddy
AND a 'work mum'
all rolled into one
The frequently cited benefits of mentoring include increased confidence; clarity; better management of overwhelm and stress; setting & achieving goals
Just imagine, working together,
