AKD Moment

Realising the depth of seemingly simple ‘games’ had the power of positive transformation.


‘You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending’ C.S. Lewis

About me


work really hard at being an inspirational leader, a lifelong learner! I use my wide ranging life experience and a sustained record of success in nursing, research, evidence translation, facilitation, learning and development, quality improvement and innovation every day to stimulate my own and others thinking.


I was awarded a Research Training Fellowship from the Chief Scientist’s Office in Scotland to complete my Doctoral studies, only the second nurse to win this award.  My scientific background together with my doctoral expertise brings a wealth of insight that I use in a variety of sectors including engineering, financial, healthcare, retail and education. I run my own consultancy business specialising in leadership, management development and growth coaching.


I prefer to use collaborative approaches to translate vision into reality, helping people to find and develop their potential and their influence by understanding themselves so that they can be the best they can be in all spheres of their lives.


I am a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council and has regular coaching supervision. I am proud to be a senior associate with AKD solutions. I love being able to combine my passion for people, development and creativity to bring out our best!


Working with companies who want to stimulate brilliance in their workforce by designing and delivering bespoke innovative solutions that have the power to transform is what I enjoy the most at AKD.
