My background is in community and organisational development and training mainly in the Central Scotland area and in the Not-For-Profit Sector. However, my creative approach is also used in the Private and Public Sector. I have been working as an independent consultant and trainer since 1995. Prior to that my experience since moving to Scotland over 30 years ago includes working as a manager, working in partnership with others to set up organisations to respond to the unmet needs of the community, counselling, being a Director or Committee Member of many forms of Executive or Management Committee or as a panel member of national working parties.

Through my work as an assessor for grant-making bodies I am able to focus on effectively applying skills, abilities and knowledge to the particular needs you have or the needs of your organisation.

As well as running my own consultancy I act as a short-course programme trainer with the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (click here) and as a part-time Teaching Fellow with the University of Dundee (click here).

Through my own experience of being intimidated I have worked since the late 1980s on developing strategies for dealing with bullying and intimidation and was one of the first consultants in Scotland to offer consultancy or coaching focused on the needs of those who had been intimidated and more recently on helping organisations to prepare their staff members in working with their Dignity At Work Policies.
