I am a training and development consultant with a passion for seeing people develop their skills and grow their confidence so that they can fulfil their potential at work. I started Flourishing People in 2001 to enable me to put that passion to work supporting a variety of small and medium sized businesses and charities in London and the East of England.
Having spent over 25 years honing my skills as a management trainer, coach and human resources consultant I am confident my clients can depend on me to make a valuable contribution to their business that will have lasting effects for years to come.
I have experience of working across many sectors including central and local government organisations, voluntary and community organisations, and SMEs. Over the past 12 years I have specialised in providing business, governance, management and leadership skills training for businesses in the Early Years and Childcare sector. This support is tailor-made to build the competence and confidence of owners, managers, governors and committee members within the sector.
I work in partnership with a number of other freelance consultants who bring complementary skills and experience to my clients, as well as sharing my guiding principles. This approach enables me to deliver a wide range of people development services.
My partnership with Jeremy Webster of Silver Pebble Ltd is now in its 7th year. Working together enables us to provide courses and qualifications accredited by the Institute of Consulting (IC) and the Chartered Institute of Management (CMI). This includes tailored versions of the Level 5 in Business Support and the Level 5 in Consulting Skills, which we co-deliver as the Childcare Business Advisers Programme
I am a member of NEyTCO – The National Early Years Trainers and Consultants Organisation. This organisation provides a one-stop-shop for trainers and consultants who specialise in providing services within the Early Years & Childcare sector.
