I’m a Thinking Environment facilitator, writer, public speaker, coach and nomadic educator, based in Yorkshire and always very happy to travel. I choose work based on the following definition of ‘Good Help’ from Nesta UK:
“Work that enables people to feel hopeful, identify their own purpose and confidently take action.”
I love social media, particularly using it to build community; very powerful when combined with the generative attention of a Thinking Environment. I have particular strengths around engagement, digital resilience and the creation of effective, bespoke culture change programmes. I try to be joyfully militant in everything I do.
I’m also very interested in developing work around wellbeing, particularly mental health and developing personal agency (taking me right back to my first career as a Public Health Specialist). The health empowerment work I do (aka Slimming World) is the best community development work I’ve ever done.
I’m contracted with the Education and Training Foundation via touchconsulting ltd to work on the #APConnect and #StudyGood further education professional development programmes: truly the engine rooms of change. And I have the privilege of coaching some of the finest thinkers in education and the third sector.
