About me


am a highly experienced senior trainer, facilitator and consultant with a vast expertise in learning and development and corporate social responsibility solutions. Founder and Director of Kemcan Training and Consultancy based in the Midlands, I work in partnership with AKD to deliver bespoke training to a range of clients.


I have worked on the design and delivery of various training for large corporate organisations as well as small local businesses.  My learning and development skills, knowledge and experience were honed during the twenty years I have spent as a Lecturer and Curriculum Manager at the City College of Birmingham.


I have over twenty five years of specialist training experience in Equality, Inclusion and Diversity. I have worked as the Deputy Director at Birmingham Professional Diversity, an organisation established to assist the Business and Professional sector to appreciate the benefits of recruiting diversely. In addition, I have a Specialist Employment Advisor for DWP’s Reducing the Gap’ employment project, designed to assist businesses to attract diverse candidates by recruiting differently and more equitably.


I am emotionally intelligent and extremely confident across all levels of business and enterprise. This helps me to develop excellent working relationships with a wide and diverse range of networks and organisations which has provided me with a proven track record in delivering high quality learning and development solutions for all clients.  Some of the clients I have worked with and delivered Equality, Inclusion and Diversity training to are: Arriva, Lendlease, Cleveland Hospital – USA, ECB, Kier.


As well as primarily operating within the corporate world, I work tirelessly within the community to add value and support community development.   I have served on a number of boards in a voluntary capacity, fully utilising my ability to communicate clearly and effectively.
