About me

JM_18Aug_072_sI work as a facilitator and trainer.

Some call what I do the “soft” skills… or the “touchy feely” stuff. I prefer to think I can combine a certain amount of business logic with an appreciation of the ability of humans to surprise and amaze us. My work ranges from one-to-one coaching through small teams to conferences of 300 plus participants.

I’ve worked in the UK Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia and North America and clients have included

  • Channel 4
  • The BBC
  • Virgin Atlantic
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Save the Children International
  • Edinburgh University
  • Oxford University
  • Dept for Business, Innovation and Skills
  • PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • World Vision

Earlier days

I started my career working as researcher/speechwriter to Lord (Alan) Sainsbury. After that I became a copywriter and then a planner in advertising before starting my own marketing firm in 1988.

Over the last few years, I’ve done extensive training in psychotherapy and other forms of personal development. This has coincided with my increasing interest in the human side of business and how we can create richer relationships in our working lives.
