I have been helping organisations and their employees to thrive for nearly 20 years, first as a senior HR professional and more recently as an HR Consultant and Coach. 
Most of my corporate career has been spent working in large multinationals in the Engineering and Manufacturing sector. At the height of technology, these Companies are complex and ever changing! More and more, my role involved helping Leaders connect their people to the company purpose and in helping them to be resilient and adapt to change. 
My ethos is that we need to start thinking beyond employees as assets, and to understand how human beings are motivated; how they think, feel and learn, to really allow individuals and teams to flourish; and then companies will thrive. 
It was this ethos, that led me to the power of coaching and to formalising my credentials through an ICF accredited certification. Getting coached myself, helped me to figure out my own values and to understand what gets me up in the morning. I decided I could make more impact working for myself and that this would provide me with the balance I needed to be there for my family; I have a son and a daughter, a husband, two cats and a puppy! 
One of the best things I have found about working for myself, has been the connections I have made with new colleagues and friends, the ability to share ideas and support one another. I first met Adrian when I was starting out on my own and he gave me the benefit of his wisdom! He then introduced me to Freddie, and we soon realised how aligned we were with what’s important and saw opportunities to work together. I am proud to be able to support RTP’s clients and future clients with top class development. 
I particularly like to balance my ‘two hats’; stakeholder management and really understanding the business from my HR experience and building high performing leaders and teams through coaching. 
I am accredited in several tools, including Insights Discovery™, Emotional Intelligence and The GC Index*. I am particularly excited about using The GC Index. It is still relatively new, different from anything else on the market, and I see so many opportunities to use it. 
Outside of work and family, I also volunteer. I am the Chair of Governors for a local primary school and volunteer for ‘Pregnant then Screwed’, a charity working to tackle the root causes of maternity discrimination and to promote the rights of women. In my role, I support pregnant women, mothers and partners through the advice line, when they have questions about employment rights, flexible working requests, parental leave policies or when they have experienced workplace discrimination due to pregnancy, parental leave or simply being a parent. 
I am a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD and an ACC accredited coach with the International Coaching Federation. 
*The GC Index ® measures energy for impact, a digital Organimetric, measures and describes five proclivities i.e. five different ways in which people are inclined to make an impact and contribution. It provides a language and framework for people, that is simple, effective and outcome driven. It is scalable, reliable and adaptable, but most of all, it creates a level playing field where everyone can contribute and make a positive impact. 
Individuals and organisations benefit from: 
- The simplicity of the language and framework centred around the five key areas of impact. 
- The sophistication of 100,000 different GC Index® profile combinations, showing how everyone can contribute. 
- Promoting a framework that delivers the diversity of impact the modern world of work requires.
