About Me
I left school with two things; an O Level in Home Economics and a message from the deputy head which said 'I'm not sorry you're leaving'. He, among others, had convinced himself that I wasn’t worth much attention; which led me to believe that I wasn’t worth much attention. Consequently I had no desire to work at the academic stuff. However,  I was a whizz at drama and sport. I loved both. The teachers were inspiring and I was motivated to work hard. As a teenager, my pin-up was David Wilkie (Olympic gold medalist) and my dream was to pursue a career in theatre and television.
I was a director at a charity from 2005 to 2010 and I use the skills and knowledge from this experience to advise not-for-profit organisations on how to maximise their potential.

I am the founder and director of Really Responsible Training, a company specialising in experiential training courses where the participants learn while benefitting a charity.

Following more than two decades of experience in training and development, I now focus on helping people to perform at their best through speaking, advising and coaching. I think our brains hold the key to our behaviour - good and bad - which is why I'm passionate about helping people to understand the ways in which it affects their performance at work.  I like to  talk about psychology and neuroscience in plain terms, avoiding jargon and psychobabble. 
"The brain is a wonderful organ. It starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office."

Consequently, my first career was in show business. I trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London and I worked in theatres as a stage manager and was a film producer for a number of years. I relocated to the United States in the early 90s and rekindled my passion for sport. I qualified as a personal trainer and sports coach. I brought my knowledge and skills back to the UK and, along with a couple of other business women,  started a personal training academy. From that, I developed an  interest in the psychology of personal development and decided to  train as a psychologist.
I  now hold an MSc in Occupational Psychology and am accredited to deliver management and leadership qualifications for the ILM and CMI. I  have been a management trainer, consultant and speaker since the mid 1990s. My background in show business means that I aim to entertain as well as educate when working with people in organisations. I  have worked with international companies such as BP, Xstrata, Honda UK, Janssen, the Home Office, London Fire Brigade and a number of NHS trusts - as well as a lot of small businesses and charities you're unlikely to have heard of.
