Talent is the multiplier. The more energy and attention you invest in it, the greater the yield.

L&D functions are shrinking, and a plethora of new technologies and approaches make it difficult to separate the latest fad from something worth investing in. 

So it's not surprising that many organisations have a reactive approach to Learning and Development. But at a time when the world of work is changing rapidly, companies need to have confidence in L&D strategies that are agile and future-proof as well as providing value for money.

You know your business better than anyone, so my collaborative approach uses your insight to help shape the solution. Then my reliability, systematic approach and frequent communication make it easy for you - you've got enough on your plate.

I've advised the L&D functions of some of the worlds largest organisations, as well as working with government departments.


Whether it's an immediate requirement to embed change through people, or longer-term planning for an effective talent management strategy, I can help:

  • L&D strategy and planning

  • L&D function optimisation

  • Analysis and insight into current and future learning needs

  • Broader talent management and leadership development strategies

  • Fostering a learning culture or coaching culture

  • Strategies for successfully embedding change 

  • Training design, both face to face and online

  • Quality review of existing training programmes

  • Facilitation, including senior-level meetings and away days/conferences.

  • Training evaluation strategies, data collection and insight

  • Shaping the broader talent management and HR ecosystem so that new skills and behaviours have a stronger chance of rooting.
