My Style


I am known for my creative and Interactive learning style mixed with some engaging humour! I develop and include tested tools and reflective strategies that are not only practical and down to earth but can be implemented immediately after training, making the time spent with me instantly productive while demonstrating the return on investment.

I am also known for being highly organised and love a planner and smelly flipchart pens!
