My Career History

I graduated from Lancaster University with a degree in French and English, and, after working in France and Germany, completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and taught in Further and Tertiary Education.  After moving to work in outdoor management development in Australia, I became an instructional designer and later a Senior Internal Consultant for the Management Development Group of Telstra (formerly Telecom Australia).

After my return to the UK, I worked with a number of consultancies, and with my own clients, on a wide variety of capability development projects across the private, public and voluntary sectors.    My recent assignments include:

Running workshops to use the Enneagram to enhance team effectiveness, and for personal and life/spiritual development.  I also use the Enneagram and MBTI in my coaching work.

Coaching teams for business effectiveness – helping intact teams to improve their effectiveness through identifying the impact of behaviour on business results –  (higher education, telecomms and other private and third sector companies).

Change and project management – managing a 10 year project to design, develop and manage a 3 level accreditation process for a professional institute (Institute for Outdoor Learning, UK)

Since 2017 I have been a Director of Enneagram Training UK and Ireland. We provide a full suite of Enneagram personal and professional development programmes, under licence from the USA based home of the Narrative Tradition of the Enneagram The Narrative Enneagram.
