Pragmatic and experienced, I’ve worked with some fantastic businesses over my career, including Marks and Spencer and Allen & Overy, the international law firm. In addition, I have freelanced for many charities, ranging from large multi-site operations to small not-for-profits employing 2 or 3 people, and my successful HR business has grown entirely by word-of-mouth referral. I love adding value to organisations and really enjoy knotty employment law problems.
I’ve got a Masters in HR with Distinction and am a Fellow of the CIPD but, more to the point, I’m good at what I do.
