My goal is to contribute to building a professional body of effective influencers in the voluntary sector who can make a difference, not just a noise.
Charities want to achieve change to address social injustice, tackle poverty, deal with climate change, improve health and more. My job is to support them to do that by helping clients develop skills and get results from their influencing work.
My career has taken me to Westminster to work for a minister and a backbench MP; to the voluntary sector to work in a variety of campaigning roles; and now to my own consultancy to share the lessons I’ve learned about how to influence the people and institutions who matter.
I bring my values of integrity, quality, purpose and empowerment to my work. That means:
- Tailoring every piece of work I do to the individual client and completing it to the highest standard
- Enabling the people I work with to increase their own capacity to influence
- Maintaining focus on what my clients are ultimately trying to achieve
- Always being honest with clients and respecting confidentiality
In my spare time I read, go walking in the countryside and watch live comedy. My home is north east London.
