Honesty, Integrity, Creativity

My background is in TV production and management. I moved through the ranks from runner to senior leadership and had a lot of fun in the process, from 7 series of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, getting Beyonce on stage (on time) for ITV, through to working alongside studio heads at Sony in LA. 

Whilst getting Beyonce on stage was a leadership challenge in itself, the work that I’m most proud of and which went on to win a BAFTA, was a project for Channel 4. ‘Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds At Christmas’. Based on a premise that giving up and accepting limitations is not the only option. By introducing a group of 4 year olds into a care home for the elderly, we improved the motor skills, mental health and overall lives of not only the older adults, but also the children. A great demonstration of where positive intention, connection and support can help flourish and nourish the lives of everyone. 

Now, I’m described by my coaching clients as ‘exacting’, ‘compassionate’ and ‘straightforward’, with a unique style utilising ‘warmth and humour to navigate difficult areas’ as well as a ‘confident ability to challenge and hold to account’.
