    Professional Practice

    My practice has been developing over twenty years of professional practice in change management my innate gifts of visual and 3D thinking, writing, nature, intra-personal and existential inquiry and development and high sensitivity - and a personal journey of transformation; all the while living within a cultural and world context of societal and economic models and systems being shown to be hugely undermining of the wellbeing of people and planet and a shift in collective consciousness; and it is here that my work is now called.

    Leadership Advisory & Support

  • weaving of principles & practices

    Change Management

    A super handy combination of methods, tools and approaches including research, inquiry, design, development, project management, stakeholder and audience engagement, learning, coaching and communications.

    Human & Greater Good-centred Design

    Highest good-centred design; an evolution of human-centred design and intends to consider the needs of all beings concerned, including those in the natural world; and addresses our higher selves in the process of developing anything.

     

    I work on each phase of the design and maker process; either throughout the whole journey, or assisting with a specific phase:

     

    Intention & Inquiry | Research & Discovery | Design, Prototype & Review | Build | Enhance

    Coaching

    Training in 2006 brought an important dimension to my work supporting and facilitating change and transition; and it's become a really important part of my design and making process.

    Maker

    Maker; in the fullest sense of the word; “someone who creates or invents things, either using traditional crafts or technology.”

    Scribe

    Scribe; the ancient role of scribe is a part of my service that I love; bringing out stories, ideas and wisdom from another; to be shared for the greater good.

    Inquiry & Action Research & Learning

    Inquiry and Action Learning; a structured approach with room for the emergent, organic nature of life and learning; this is the method I use in support of people going through change, transition and in their approaches to learning; and works very much on the basis of empowerment, enablement and encouragement to be sovereign in their own lives.

    Conscious & Servant Leadership

    I've been studying and working in enterprise since 1993 (yes I'm that young) - and I've gathered lots of experiences, both deemed successes and failures. insights, tools and approaches; whilst unlearning much of it and learning and developing new ways, based on a belief that enterprise is simply a helpful vehicle for one's calling, service and contribution to this earth and to humanity, to be fulfilled and sustained; I see now that I work best with people who share this view, and see the journey of leadership and enterprise as a path of awakening, of service and a work of art in itself.

    Inspired by Nature

    Whether I’m working with natural materials, facilitating a nature-focussed project or journey or connecting with the spirit of nature and place to bring more harmony and health to the physical environment; or planning my work around the seasons and moon cycles; you’ll be sure to see nature woven throughout our work together.

    Consciousness

    It's a big word that I can find difficult to comprehend. Let's think of it as expanding awareness; of both the seen and unseen. As a subject of interest and a journey of personal inquiry since finding myself booking 'Science of Consciousness' conference in New Mexico in 2007; I am clear that it pays rewards to cultivate and expand awareness. There's much to unlearn about life as well as learn in this life; and I am by no means an expert in the field of consciousness; however I am on the path, have had remarkable shifts and experiences as a result - and absolutely see the value and necessity for us all to continue to expand in this way.

     

    I bring knowledge, experience and insight harvested from this journey so far - and more importantly, curiosity and sensitivity to our work together.

  • some of the people i've worked with

    Here are some of the organisations I have worked with over the years. Through my work with these partners, I have gained valuable insight into workplaces, institutions, cultures and communities that has without question, been an important part of my path. I've developed skills and harvested tools and practices that are very useful; and in these new times they are ones that have to evolve and in some cases, left behind.
     
    The logo page also doesn't account for all of the small enterprises and entrepreneurs I have worked with since 2006; and they have been such an inspiration and so rewarding to work with. So I'd like to ensure they have a place on here too.

    'Awards' are a mixed bag and there are many perspectives to be held on them. It was however helpful to receive commendation and validation from external bodies for what I knew in 2009 was game-changing work.

  • Practicalities

    Advisory & Consultancy

    Advisory and consultancy support operates on a sliding scale, relative to the size of organisation,  leadership position and level of availability needed (when retained).

    Commissions & Co-created Content

    Investments for developments in the Maker Studio vary according to the nature of what is being designed and/or made; I work on commissions whilst adopting a co-design approach and I work in partnership with others. Naturally, the commercial agreements are different for each.

    Immersions & Retreats

    Tailored immersions and retreats for individuals looking for focussed support with specific leadership needs e.g. 100 day plan, transition, strategic thinking - or to develop or recover creativity.

    Inquiry & Action Learning

    A supported journey of inquiry, research and action learning; assisting you in experimenting and integrating creative practices and modes of thought into your leadership approach.

    How and Where?

    Sessions take place over Skype or Zoom and are arranged at mutually convenient times - either ad-hoc or in a series or rhythm.

     

    Advisory services are offered by telephone or via Zoom and Skype. Consultancy on projects is often carried out virtually and occasionally on-site.

     

    In the past, have set up studios in office, event and community spaces in support of specific projects and series' of initiatives; and this is an option to explore when capacity and availability allows for it.
