As an experienced Chief People Officer; having worked in Human Resources for 30+ years; I am now at the point in my career when I enjoy drawing on all of my experience and bringing this together in a consulting role doing projects and interim assignments, speaking at specialist events, advising businesses and HR teams.
I have worked with Boards and Executive Committees on a global basis; I have deep knowledge and expertise across the Talent Management agenda; including Leadership Development, Recruitment, Reward and Succession planning.
MBA qualified and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development; I am also a qualified Coach and Mediator, who has worked in unionised and non-unionised environments.
I have worked with CEOs, Boards and senior leaders on a global basis in regulated organisations; including Ford Motor Company, Lloyds Banking group and Lloyd’s Insurance; integrating effective Talent management into policy and practise. I have enjoyed working in complex situations with multiple stakeholder groups.
I have personally supported the recruitment and development of Chairmen, CEO’s, Directors and Non-Executive Directors. As an experienced Female executive I can provide a unique insight into the gender challenges that many Boards, and organisations, are facing.
I have also been a proactive member of Nomination and Remuneration Committees, introducing fundamental changes in Benefits, and Terms & Conditions; plus, sector leading policies & practise.
Business transformation and change has been integral to my career; and has included major restructures, M&A activity, business builds, spinoffs and sales.
Most recently I have worked with a Board, Executives and a Market to look at Culture and Behaviours; the opportunities and the implications.
Culture, Diversity & Inclusion, Values & Behaviours are the golden thread that run through all my work.
The employee and customer are at the heart of the work I do.
