I'm an experienced HR executive working in the UK, but with broad international experience. I've led fast moving, high growth organisations as well as those undergoing significant transformation and change, including both mergers and acquisitions.
Throughout my career I've delivered on both a strategic and operational level and had the opportunity to work in both specialist and generalist roles, My career has included time working in media, retail and business services and now the utilities - all in times of significant change.
This has built my expertise in compensation and benefits, organisational development, talent management, strategic resourcing and employee relations. I've partnered with a range of CEOs and board colleagues and contributed to the broader business leadership and strategy. I like to innovate and find creative, commercial solutions to business issues.
I pride myself on my communication skills and broad business knowledge. I'm down to earth, calm and measured whilst still working at pace and focused on delivery. My range of experience means I've learnt to adapt and flex to different industries and cultures.
When I'm not working, I'm passionate about education, skills and the world of work in general. I'm a regular commentator on developments within the industry and have written for publications in the UK and US and spoken at conferences across the globe.
