When anyone asks me what I do I always reply I am in the business of learning. For me that is at the core of what we do as practitioners and is essential for self-development and professional growth. I am also passionate about enabling the best possible outcomes for the children that we teach.
I have a primary education, senior leadership background. In addition to this I have worked for a Local Authority and have extensive experience of supporting the professional development of teachers and school leaders. Most recently I have worked independently a leadership development consultant.
Leadership learning is my main specialism. I am particularly interested in building capacity and the confidence of leaders at all levels. I have experience of developing both middle and senior leaders and have particular expertise in leading and sustaining change.
I have a very young son and so time outside of work is taken up by caring for him, which I love. As a family we also enjoy trying to wear out our very energetic springer spaniel on long walks. I am also a keen cook and love trying out new recipes, much to my friends delight.
