Founder and Chief Progress Officer
I love helping teams and organisations achieve their mission, and coaching individuals to make their dreams a reality.
My early career was in ecology and conservation research, and I now believe real change in the world will come through people and organisations finding their purpose and making great things happen for the world.
I have a track record in turning around business unit performance and delivering organisation-wide strategic improvement in 'for-purpose' sectors. By leading corporate strategy development and implementation in public bodies and charities, I have helped resolve institutional and intractable problems with zeal and perseverance.
Having worked as a senior leader in large organisations, and as a non-executive and trustee for small and start up businesses and charities, I understand the varied challenges that leaders face in delivering their missions. I want to share my experience with you and help you explore your own situation so that you can make progress.
I decided to launch 600 strategy after I developed my passion and expertise in strategy and change management over the course of a decade in my previous roles:
Director of Strategic Change and Planning for Oxford Brookes University
Director of Strategy and External Affairs at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Senior Civil Servant in UK Government (Defra)
Qualified in change management, project and programme management, environmental management systems and social value return on investment, trained as a B Leader to support companies who want to become B Corps and certified as a Carbon Literacy Facilitator. I love learning and am always developing new skills, but when your needs go beyond my expertise, I have a wide group of Associates who complement my specialisms.
