A long time ago, under hypnosis, I found out that my big driver in life was 'to make a difference'. It was no surprise then that I drifted into management consultancy as a career and into voluntary services as a passion.
I am a member of Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team and until recently I was the Training Officer. I am a qualifed medic and first aid instructor and set up the Community First Responder Team in our village. I have been Medical Officer for Ripon RUFC and have a keen interest in all things medical, particularly around trauma management.
I have always had a passion for the outdoors and mountains in particular and am a qualifed Mountain Leader, which allows me to take groups of people into the mountains of the UK and Ireland.
The common theme here is 'making a difference', whether that be enrichening a client's day in the hills, providing CPR to someone who has collapsed, searching at night in the snow for a missing person or managing a dislocated shoulder at rugby.
I feel passionate about making a difference which, in a nutshell, is the purpose of this site.
We're here to make a difference. You and me. So come on in and have a look around.
For the last 20 years I have worked in change management and the processes that organisations have to go through to make change successful. My consultancy practice works with blue chip organisations all over the globe and in the last 10 years I have been working more at the 1:1 level with senior executives and business leaders to support, guide and mentor them through their change processes.
I want your experience to be as comfortable and as comforting as possible, because it is in this environment that we can have the most success. Noise, distractions, cold, traffic, phones, (kids too!) are all designed to take your mind off the task at hand, so I will make sure that we have the right environment and setting to best achieve your goals.
